Getting Your Canvas Course Ready for the Semester


Call for faculty presentations for Once Upon an Artifact that will be the evening of Tuesday, September 28, 2021!

Once Upon an Artifact is an annual collaboration between JCCC and the Johnson County Art and Heritage Center. JCCC faculty members can choose any artifact or topic in the museum that relates to their discipline in some way and give a short, 20-minute presentation about it.

This year’s theme is “The Forgotten Fifties,” inspired by the temporary exhibit “PAUL MCCOBB... the greatest American Designer you didn't know you knew!”

You can view this video for more information, and and check out photos from the 2019 event.

For more information, please contact Maureen Fitzpatrick, Beth Gulley or the Office of Faculty Development.
