A Message from Campus Directors of Faculty and Instructional Development Shara Lee, Dori Haggerty and Sally Leslie and Faculty Director of the Teaching/Learning Academy Claudine Bentham
Mark your calendars for Destination 2021, which will take place virtually during the first five Friday afternoons of the summer term — May 14, 21, 28, June 4 and June 11, 2021.
Destination is an annual professional development program that brings Valencia College colleagues together to explore teaching and learning innovations, challenges and solutions. We hope you will join us at our first ever entirely virtual, synchronous program to connect and learn alongside colleagues from diverse fields 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). Further details will be available on the Destination webpage after Spring Break, including the application to participate.
All tracks will award participants $500 for successful completion and, since a stipend is awarded, Professional Development (PD) hours are not available.*
If you would like more information or have any questions about the program or process, please reach out to a campus director from your campus.
*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 HR4U@valenciacollege.edu, or call the HR4U helpline at 407-299-5000, extension HR4U (4748).
