DARE Sponsored Professional Development Activities

In 2013 so far, DARE sponsored several professional development activities, including a technology retreat for the ESL Department, a basic skills retreat for the English Department, and a best practices swap meet that was a joint activity for the Social Sciences and Humanities Division and the Language Arts Division.  DARE hosted a professional development workshop on Reading Apprenticeship that was sponsored by the California Community College Success Network (3CSN) on October 18, 2013. 

There are several 3CSN workshops coming this fall at local area colleges.  All are free and you can learn more about them and register for them here.
