All week I’ll be posting “tomorrow’s” PAD schedule so you have an idea of what to look forward to. So Sunday you get Monday’s schedule, Monday you’ll get Tuesday schedule and so on… Watch for this icon on the post!
These sessions are for faculty and staff (sorry, not for students!); some will have RSVP requests that will have passed but (hint!) call and ask if you can be added at the last minute.
Questions about any session, do ask! Be glad to help!

WHAT’S NEW AT COLLEGE VILLAGE (AND LUNCH!) – Here’s an opportunity to hear about the latest activities and improvements at College Village.

The session will also include a tour of one or two dorm suites, and lunch! RSVP by Jan 5 to Patty Hume 585-343-0055 x6234
Batavia-Bayou Cross Cultural Connection – This will be a full day event to explore Louisiana’s struggle to rebound from Katrina and the BP oil spill featuring live music, educational panel discussions with organizations for the New Orleans area, a documentary film and reflection by GCC students, a Taste of New Orleans, and much more.
Blackboard Drop In Assistance – Harold Strassner and/or Mary Jane Heider will be available to assist faculty with any Blackboard questions, issues or to just give feedback on your course. Stop in when you can, leave when you need to — stay 5 minutes or all week! All are welcome! Faculty needing assistance with usernames and passwords are welcome to stop by and we’ll resolve those problems on the spot.
Study Abroad – General information about Genesee’s growing study abroad program. Come and hear about program initiatives and see how you and/or your students might become involved.
Smart Classroom Training – Come and learn more about using a Smart Classroom. Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, come and learn new uses of the smart classroom equipment.
Adjunct Discipline Meeting – Come to T119 to find out where your group is meeting. (That means come 5 minutes early so you can go to T119 and then navigate to the real meeting room!)
New Adjunct Orientation – A mind boggling quick over view of many of the ‘things’ new adjuncts need to know including but not limited to: Library, dealing with students with disabilities, end of semester grading, Blackboard use and general business process. You don’t need to be a new instructor to attend… come with your questions!
