GREEN ZONE TRAINING

What is Green Zone Training?

Green Zone training is for faculty and staff that wish to learn more about the military affiliated student experience. Its goals are to train members of the Carolina community to know more about the issues and concerns faced by military affiliated students and to identify individuals who are available to assist this population. These individuals are not expected to be experts who can "solve problems." They are individuals who can lend a sympathetic ear and help the student veteran identify and connect with the appropriate resources.

Participants who complete the training will receive a sign to display in their office and have their name listed on our website as having completed the training.  Please contact Matt Thewes once you have completed the training materials to receive your display sign.

Facilitator:  Matt Thewes, M.Ed., Retired US Air Force, Director of Veterans Services

EXCELLENCE IN TEACHING (EIT)

In May of 2013, we implemented the Excellence in Teaching (EIT) Course to help orient new instructors to FTCC and to help polish their teaching skills for the FTCC classroom. The course is a great introduction to the school, how to teach and how to help our students be successful in our classrooms. Based on the popularity of the course, we decided to create a web-based open version that anyone at the school could review and use as a learning resource.  If you click on the link below, you will be able to access all of the materials, links and see what the new EIT Course is all about!  If you are required to take the EIT course as part of your employment, you will need to sign up through your supervisor and take the Blackboard version of the course.

This is an information session for those who already have a master's degree and wish to pursue an Ed.D in Educational Leadership with a focus on preparing for executive leadership roles.  The first 30 minutes of each session will be a presentation of the program followed by a question and answer period.

Other programs are designed for higher education in general and may provide few courses related to the community college. While our goal is to prepare individuals to serve as Deans, Vice Presidents, and Presidents in 21st century community colleges, the program attracts students who are faculty members, counselors, program coordinators, and other positions who may or may not decide to seek those positions.

WHAT IS CAREER COACH?

What is Career Coach? Career Coach places the student in the driver's seat of their career choices. In this high pressure world of intense competition, many people rush to grab the first job they're offered, often becoming trapped in a career they know, but not a career they love. For an individual to be assured a successful and gratifying career, the individual must first determine their interests, skills, and aggressively pursue the career that best matches their unique qualities and talents based upon real-time data. Whether choosing a school, a college major or starting a new trade or career, Career Coach helps the student think long-term about their life goals. Admissions, Faculty Advisors, Counselors and Career Center staff have tools to help students to understand their program/job market.

PERFORMANCE APPRAISAL PROCESS AND PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENT PROCESS

This professional development session is designed for supervisors that appraise the performance of faculty, staff and administrators working at the College.  Since appraisal time is fast approaching, now is an ideal time for supervisors to review and refresh their knowledge of the College's appraisal process and to share techniques for completion of appraisals and required supporting documentation.  During this session, we will discuss the appraisal process,  proven methods for providing meaningful feedback to those being appraised, and supervisor considerations when scheduling time to meet with their employees to provide them with appraisal feedback.  We will also discuss time-tested techniques that encourage employees to participate in open dialogue with their supervisors in the development of continuous improvement goals for the coming year, including reaching consensus on associated measures for success for those future  improvement goals.  Another aspect of the appraisal process is the supervisor's role in coaching those employees needing performance improvements during the upcoming appraisal period.  This session will include a review and discussion of appropriate uses of the College's Performance Improvement Plan and how it can be used as a tool to engage employees in developing time-phased action plans to reach those desired improvement goals..

LESSON DEVELOPMENT FOR COMMUNITY COLLEGE INSTRUCTORS

The paradigm for community college instruction is ever-evolving. Gone are the days when the instructor was the all-knowing guru whose teaching style consisted of lectures and writing assignments. Today’s successful community college instructors can benefit from a shift in perspective in which the intended student outcome is the key to determining how students will be evaluated and taught. This interactive workshop focuses on how to write clear-cut objectives, evaluative statements, and lesson plans.
