The Best Ideas from the Past Year of Virtual Professional Events

Over the last year, many educational and professional organizations (such as the AAC&U, ACL, Campus Compact Southern New England, CCCOER, and NILOA) have offered free or low-cost virtual lectures, workshops, and conferences to educators. We know many of you have taken advantage of these opportunities to enhance your skills and broaden your knowledge. This is an opportunity for you to share with your QCC colleagues the best practices, skills, tools, and information you’ve learned by attending these professional development events and to hear from your co-workers what they’ve learned.
