Communities of Practice for Part-Time Faculty Series


The Communities of Practice for Part-Time Faculty Series will help build a positive culture at OCC by creating a community of part-time faculty that dialogues about effective teaching, campus resources and OCC's culture.

This is a great professional development opportunity that is free and open to all OCC employees: come for one or come for all - it's up to you!
