CPCC's first Learning College Showcase has something of interest for everyone. Make plans to attend one or more sessions on May 13 from 8:30 a.m.- 4:40 p.m. in the Levine IT building on Central Campus. Following are descriptions of two of the workshops:

Did you know that "Provides Regular Feedback on Student Progress" was the lowest scoring category on the latest CPCC Student Opinion Survey for fall 2009? To learn more, take an hour and attend a workshop entitled "Feedback-Turn Up the Volume" at the Learning College Showcase on Thursday, May 13 at 12:30 p.m. in LT-4121. This workshop emphasizes the use of feedback as an assessment tool plus it highlights the pivotal role student feedback plays in targeting specific learning outcomes and assessments. Participants will learn practical  and immediate ways to use feedback as a formative assessment method for learning in the classroom. The audience will be involved in developing examples of ideal feedback. Register in LearnerWeb.

Learn how Service Learning initiatives can enrich courses in the STEMS division by attending the Learning College Showcase workshop entitled "Service-Learning at the Crossroads of Environmental Sustainability and Safe, Affordable Housing." CPCC faculty and students have engaged in a partnership with Habitat for Humanity, Sierra Club, and Green Homes to support an initiative designed to serve low income homeowners by conducting energy audits and home weatherization upgrades. The homeowners, often elderly or disabled, are identified by the Charlotte Habitat for Humanity Critical Repair Ministry. Following essential home repairs conducted by Habitat, CPCC students will work with Green Homes, a local energy audit start-up business, to conduct an energy audit and identify air leaks in the homes. Our students then work with the partnership to add insulation, weather stripping and caulk to tighten the homes and reduce interior/exterior air exchange. This workshop is scheduled for Thursday, May 13 at 1:30 p.m. in LT-4121. Register in LearnerWeb.<https://pd.cpcc.edu/cpcc/>
