Please save the date. MCC is hosting a professional development event on campus this June titled "MINDFULLY DEFINING COLLEGE READINESS " and on Friday, June 2 from 8:30 AM-3:30 PM. We hope you’ll join us for conversation and collegiality as we explore several questions around what it means to be college ready. Some highlights include the following:
• Keynote Speaker – Buddhist priest who will talk about using the practice of mindfulness in educational settings.
• Student Voice Videos – Listen to first-hand accounts from MCC and local high school students about their ideas surrounding college readiness – and the gaps that exist between learning in high school and college.
• Dialogue Groups – Discuss the current challenges in preparing students for college – and collaborate with other high school and college faculty to help facilitate the transition for students.
We have a great group of educators from MCC, SUNY Brockport, and RCSD who are working on the conference facilitation committee to share resources. I hope you can join us. Feel free to contact me at <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
