Register for Learning Day 2021

Tuesday, January 19, 2021

Registration is now open for Learning Day 2021, which will be held online on Friday, February 12, 2021. Join your colleagues for a time to learn, celebrate and inspire one another. The day will feature three learning sessions, as well as a morning general session with remarks from College President Sandy Shugart and a keynote speaker.

All campus locations will be closed for Learning Day, and no classes will be held.

Learning Day is a regular work day for faculty and staff, and programming will be provided between 8:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. Employees are encouraged and expected to use the afternoon for independent learning, such as reading, reflecting and participating in on-demand courses through LinkedIn Learning.

Full-time employees are required to attend or submit a Certificate of Absence (COA) for vacation or personal time (Staff – eight hours of leave; Faculty – seven hours of leave). Full-time employees will be paid for a full day’s worth of work, even if scheduled events end early. Non-exempt employees should adjust their work schedules, so they can attend the full day. If a non-exempt employee works any hours over 40, the employee must be paid overtime.

Part-time colleagues are invited and encouraged to attend Learning Day, although participation is voluntary. Part-time staff will be compensated for attendance at their regular rate of pay and should work with their supervisor to have their normal schedule adjusted if they plan to attend. Part-time faculty members who choose to attend would do so as a part of their current part-time faculty contract. Since attendance is voluntary for part-time employees, a COA is not required for non-attendance.

For additional information on Learning Day, attendance and participation, read the Learning Day Frequently Asked Questions found on this webpage.
