Staying Connected

We are very excited to invite you join us for Skyline College’s Adjunct Faculty Teaching & Learning Symposium | Staying Connected where we will continue to advance Skyline College’s mission “to empower and transform a global community of learners.” This year’s theme, TBA, will feature programming and learning opportunities that support exploring connection to our college, our pedagogy, and our community at large. We look forward to another great symposium and being in community with you. Start browsing now and sign up for the sessions you would like to attend.  Breakfast starts at 8:30 AM and sessions run from  9:00 AM - 2:30 PM.

Note: This year’s symposium will take place primarily in person in Bldg 12. To support the health, safety, and peace of mind of our community, we ask that you plan to wear your mask during the indoor portion of the programming.

For more information, contact John Ulloa, Professional Development Coordinator

Don't forget to engage with us on Twitter #SkyFlex for chances to win raffle prizes!
