Dr. Tom Angelo

Dr. Angelo graciously gave a workshop this past summer at JCCC while here as a keynoter for another conference. The theme of his presentation was “CATs and COLTs: Classroom Assessment Techniques and Collaborative Learning Techniques.”  Dr. Angelo drew directly from his teaching experiences to share practical strategies that could be immediately implemented in courses in all disciplines. To quote one of my colleagues at this event, “it was like a master class on teaching.” You won’t want to miss Dr. Angelo’s workshops or keynote address in April. Register today!
