A Message from Wendi Dew, Assistant Vice President, Teaching and Learning

You are invited to Destination 2021, an annual professional development program that brings colleagues together to explore teaching and learning innovations, challenges and solutions. The program will begin Friday, May 14, 2021, and continue for five consecutive Friday afternoons. We hope you will join us at our first-ever, entirely virtual, synchronous program to connect and learn alongside colleagues in this collegial, immersive, learning experience. We guarantee that your learning environment will never be the same.

This year, we are planning another robust program focused on equity-minded teaching practices and Seeking Educational Equity and Diversity (SEED) with the following tracks:

  • Equity-minded Practice
  • SEED I: Seeking Educational Equity and Diversity
  • SEED II: Seeking Educational Equity and Diversity II
    • Note: This track is open to participants who have successfully completed SEED I (year-long cohort or previous Destination).

All tracks will award participants $500 for successful completion and, since a stipend is awarded, Professional Development (PD) hours are not available.

To learn more about the Destination 2021 tracks and to apply, please visit the Destination webpage. The application will close on Friday, April 2, 2021. All Valencia faculty members, part-time and full-time, are encouraged to apply.*

We hope to see you for an exciting Destination 2021.

*Your employment status at the time of application will determine compensation. Full-time, non-exempt staff and part-time staff are paid their hourly wage; overtime may be paid, if applicable. Please note that overtime is paid after 40 hours of work, not inclusive of leave or paid time off. If you have any questions about how you would be compensated for participation in the program, please contact Organizational Development and Human Resources at, or call HR4U helpline at 407-299-5000, extension HR4U (4748).
