• "We learn a lot from each other. We get newly excited about resources in our culturally-rich community and can then transmit this excitement. And workshops are usually well organized and presented; well worth the investment of time."

    Susan Rand Brown, English Faculty Adjunct

  • "Anything that broadens and deepens the faculty’s knowledge, awareness, cultural experiences, etc., must affect how s/he teaches. Directly or indirectly, students reap the rewards of a well-rounded instructor."

    Lynn Mardon, Philosophy Faculty Adjunct

  • "It doesn't matter what your discipline is, HHP activities give us ways to expand and relate our courses to their surroundings."

    Peggy Schuyler, ESL Faculty

  • "I really enjoyed our workshop at the Athenaeum. I found I can definitely make use of the Athenaeum to enhance our students' learning and critical thinking. When assessing patients, nurses have to pay close attention to minute details and must be able to think critically in response to their findings. The docent was an excellent facilitator and will be useful in having students exposed to the arts as well as honing their assessment and critical thinking skills." John Lagosz, Nursing Faculty

  • "I had a great time observing and learning from various pieces of art. I have contacted the museum staff to see if there is any artwork that could benefit nutrition or biology students."

    Carmen Yiamouyiannis, Science Faculty

  • "It is so beneficial to be infused anew with the spirit that fashioned my way into education in the first place; to find ways to help students experience the joy of learning and feeling something new and exciting that may bring long and unanticipated benefits to them for who knows how long or when, is still a thrill. It is particularly good when one can share this enthusiasm with colleagues and experience the added gift of learning from each other." Gerry Simpson, English Faculty Adjunct

  • "I very much enjoyed the Wadsworth workshop on using art to teach my discipline history. I've had questions before, when I would bring my class to the museum, but did not know how to approach the art or work it in the course, except for visual. Now, I have an idea, and I can utilize this method shown to us in the workshop."
    Marcus Lawson, History Faculty

  • "I certainly enjoyed this workshop--it opened my eyes to the diversity of art. I came up with various ideas to incorporate art into Sociology, the most interesting being ethnocentrism. This is great for my subject."

    Kelly Porter, Sociology Faculty Adjunct

Learn new ways to teach theater and attend CCC Night @ TheaterWorks and the performance of THIRD for FREE

This is a special arrangement for ENGLISH 102 instructors, but all English and other Humanities faculty might find this useful. So this special opportunity and offer is going out to all of you.

Renowned theater director and Artistic Director of TheaterWorks Rob Ruggiero has offered to lead a workshop for our faculty on the technique of Script Analysis.

When? Friday, October 2 at 6pm

What? Script Analysis Workshop (learn new ways to teach drama) taught by Rob Ruggiero (www.robruggiero.com)

Where? TheaterWorks (233 Pearl St, Hartford)

And? 7pm CCC Reception (food and cash bar)

And? 2 FREE tickets for the 8pm performance of Third

(Note: since you will get two free tickets, your guest can either attend the workshop or join us after the workshop for the reception and performance.)

This is NOT a workshop about teaching Third. It is a workshop designed to help us teach drama, which is one the three required genres for English 102.

RSVP to Jeff Partridge at jpartridge@capitalcc.edu

HHP Workshop: Backstage Tour of Hartford Stage and Teaching Workshop

What? Backstage Tour of Hartford Stage & Teaching Workshop on Rear Window

When? Wednesday, Oct 7, Tour at 3pm, Teaching Workshop at 4pm

Who? Any faculty interested in getting more insight into theater productions (especially good for ENG 102, where teaching drama is required)

How many? We have 8 more spaces available – first come, first served. RSVP to me right away.
