Dear Colleagues,

On Tuesday, October 11, the Center for Instructional Excellence and the Professional Development Institute will host the seventh NMC October Conference. This is a college-wide professional development event for all regular faculty and staff, as well as adjunct faculty. 

An appointment has been sent to your Google calendar. The College will be closed to allow all faculty and staff to attend. We are excited to have everyone together again, face-to-face for this event!

Our morning will begin at 8:00 am at the Milliken Auditorium with light refreshments, followed by a welcome and a keynote address. Our speaker is Dr. Todd Zakrajsek, learning science author and speaker from University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and the Lilly Conferences. 

We will have a wide variety of sessions available for all NMC faculty and staff to come together to share ideas and learn new strategies, ultimately giving everyone an opportunity to collaborate and learn from each other.

This year’s theme is: NMC Next: Unlock Your Full Potential, based on NMC’s Vision and Strategic Plan, and provides an opportunity for the College to invest in you, our employees! I can’t stress enough how important each of you is in helping our learners succeed. It takes every person in every position on campus to assure quality experiences and outcomes for our students. This day gives us the opportunity to invest in each other.

Check your calendars for a more detailed agenda with a list of sessions that will allow you to plan your day.

I look forward to seeing you there!
