Institutional Flex Day Series

NEW! For the first time in SMC's history, our Institutional Flex Day will be a virtual two-week series of live and recorded sessions.

 

Fall Institutional Flex Day Series 

The SMC Professional Development Committee (PDC) and the Classified Professional Development Committee (CPDC) have organized an Institutional Flex Day Series program aimed at preparing the college to meet the challenges of a remote learning environment, at time when the convergence of the COVID-19 pandemic and movements for racial justice asks us to reflect on our institutional responsibilities and roles to effectively serve historically marginalized students. The two-week virtual program will feature live and recorded Zoom sessions on pedagogical and institutional support for remote learning, ways to practice self-care, steps to further equitize your online classroom, and updates on campus initiatives. 

It is recognized that while in a remote environment, some SMC offices are required to remain operational. Classified staff are encouraged to coordinate their participation with their supervisors in advance of attending Fall Flex Day. Swing shift and night shift employees are welcome to attend and encouraged to work with supervisors on how their time may be shifted to allow attendance without incurring overtime.  

If you have any questions about Professional Development Day, please contact the Classified Professional Development Committee at classifiedpdc@smc.edu
