Fourth Annual March for Best Practices! March 2017

nullWill You March With Us in 2017?

The March for Best Practices is a month-long opportunity for Faculty to create 1 or 2 short videos explaining a best practice they use in their teaching, and how that connects to a QM rubric standard. Just send the link to your video to tels@yc.edu, or contact us for assistance. Panopto, Jing or Camtasia – your phone camera – will all work.
You can see this year’s March and previous history below – watch, learn and be inspired!

REWARDS~! Faculty who complete 2 videos in March will get a free lunch!

The movement is spreading:
Northwestern Michigan College
Glendale CC
Chadron State College

You can see Todd’s conference presentation about this from the 2016 Quality Matters Conference. here.

This is a peaceful march, so please, no screaming obscenities, throwing objects, flipping cars, or demeaning those who do not support our noble cause.
