Calling all innovators in Higher Education at JCCC! This past year has definitely been one for the books. We moved most of our courses online and shifted our teaching and learning pedagogy to support our students. This also included our assessment strategies.


Did you have any strategies and assessments that were very successful? Did some of your teaching practices work better in the virtual environment than others? Consider sharing your experience with colleagues at the Assessment Matters Conference scheduled for April 30, 2021. This year’s conference is Virtual and Free! Here is the link for both registration and the proposal submission.
