Dr. Bryan Alexander is a futurist—as in, he studies what’s next. But on Friday morning at CCV’s annual Faculty Summer Institute at the Lake Morey Resort in Fairlee, the conversation was all about what’s right now.
Welcome to fall semester! We’re kicking it off with a burst of bright updates from across the CCV community. Happy reading, and don’t forget to share your own announcements and accomplishments at email@example.com!
Last week, over one hundred CCV instructors gathered at the Lake Morey Resort in Fairlee for the Faculty Summer Institute, an annual two-day conference devoted entirely to faculty professional development.
It’s been a relatively quiet few weeks for CCV now that we’re well into summer, but we still had some good things happening all over the state.
Marguerite Dibble wants to tackle big problems. The title of her address, “Unlocking Behavioral Change with Games,” which she delivered at this year’s Faculty Institute, is itself evidence of Dibble’s ambition.
Often, when good things happen we say that the stars have aligned. That may or may not literally be what’s happening in the sky at that moment, but whenever it does happen, CCV-St. Johnsbury students will get to see it. Literally.
We all have skeletons in the closet, but CCV instructor Luisa Millington brings hers out to share with students.
“I have analyzed more than 3,000 human remains because Rome is a very unique situation,” said Millington, who is a native of the Italian city. “Rome has volcanic rock that is very acidic, so what happens is the acidity decomposes the flesh very quickly but preserves the bones, which is why we have so many necropoli around Rome, and every necropolis has hundreds and hundreds of human remains that need to be studied.”
Students have varying experiences at college. We all know this. But instructors attending CCV’s annual faculty retreat last week were given a much clearer picture of how social class affects student engagement and in turn, student achievement.
