The Assessment Proficiency Project at LLCC is designed to increase faculty understanding in assessment practices and promote a culture of assessment through participation in identified assessment activities. To a limited number of full-time faculty participants, this project will offer an opportunity to complete assessment activities during academic year of 2015-16. Upon completion of the project, full-time faculty who have met the requirements will receive additional professional development funds equivalent to the annual amount in the current contract.
LLCC’s Workforce Careers Center will be a “WQLZ Ticket Stop” tonight from 4-6 p.m. for the upcoming Godsmack/Sevendust rock concert in Springfield. WQLZ is broadcasting live and providing giveaways. Anyone who comes will be eligible to win tickets to the Sept. 27 concert at the Prairie Capital Convention Center. (Sorry, LLCC employees are not eligible to win the tickets, but you are welcome to stop by!)
In addition, there is an Open House scheduled during that time, with tours of the Workforce Careers Center and faculty/staff on hand to answer questions about enrolling in classes.
