End Time 4:00 PM Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) (Multi-Day Event)
FLEX # 750.1-750.4
9:00 AM - 9:50 AM Fraudulent Enrollments: Strategies for Faculty
FLEX # 383
Fraudulent Enrollments are on the rise in our online classes. The Distance Education Committee has developed a list of best practices for designing classes that make fraud more difficult, identify bad actors, AND help support the students in our classes. Join us for a discussion about these strategies. There will also be time for you to share your experiences and to ask questions.
9:00 AM - 9:50 AM Unlocking the Mystery Around Financial Aid
FLEX # 226
Do you find yourself wondering how Financial Aid supports our students? Or why there are grading requirements for which you are receiving notifications on how it "may impact a student's financial aid?" Financial aid is a complex world of regulatory guidelines that seem to further shroud the Financial Aid Office in a cloud of mystery. We want to help unlock these mysteries for you as we are all in the business of supporting our students for success. Come meet your Financial Aid team and be prepared to have the cloud of mystery removed by spending an hour with us as we answer the most commonly asked questions of both instructors and students alike.
9:00 AM - 9:50 AM We Surveyed Students, This is What They Said
FLEX # 381
In the Fall of 2023, the Institutional Research Team surveyed students that had either recently completed a degree or certification program OR had previously enrolled, but failed to re-enroll for at least two semesters. Respondents were asked questions that explored their attitudes, satisfaction and preferences across a wide range of topics including motivations for attending, barriers they faced, student support services, campus environment and more.  In this one hour session, participants will discover some of the key findings from the survey directly from the team conducting the research. Differences between 'Leavers' and 'Completers' will be examined, as will some of the common themes present in both groups. You are guaranteed to learn something about our students and their experiences on campus!
10:00 AM - 10:50 AM Infusing Wellness into Butte College Culture - A Listening Forum

This Flex session is an opportunity to introduce ourselves and our mission to the campus community and make space to listen. What does infusing wellness into our campus culture mean to you? What could we be doing differently to better support wellness? What types of wellness initiatives or events would you participate in or promote at Butte?

11:00 AM - 11:50 AM Welcome Your Students Before You Meet Them
FLEX # 151
Going to a class on the very first day and meeting new people could be nerve-racking for some people. Imagine how our students feel about meeting their teacher for the first time. It would be nice if they already knew their teacher before they came to class. It lessens their anxiety a little. In this round table talk, we will talk about how to create a welcome letter for our students that we can send them before we meet them in the class. We will discuss what should be in the letter, the tone of the letter, and how and when it should be delivered to the students. So, please join us.

1:00 PM - 1:50 PM Crash Course in Open Licenses
FLEX # 450
Are you interested in Open Educational Resources (OER) or creating a Zero Textbook Cost (ZTC) course? Often understanding open licenses can be the most complicated aspect of using and creating OER. This session will serve as a crash course in open licensing, covering basic definitions, examples, and how to use Creative Commons licenses to build your own resources. Because not everything can be covered in a single session, resources to help you navigate these concepts and your options at Butte College will also be shared.

1:00 PM - 1:50 PM Perusal for Assessing Reading Assignments and Students’ Engagement
FLEX # 153
Traditionally, reading assignments can be assessed through formative assignments at the beginning of the class. This can be significantly improved by using the freely available online platform Perusall for any mode of instruction (online, face-to-face, or hybrid). Perusall's collaborative nature and its ability to help students build a community within the course make it an ideal tool for enhancing student engagement. I will share my experiences of how I use Perusall in one of my online classes to increase student engagement, and we will also do some hands-on practice on sample assignments at Perusall.

1:30 PM - 2:50 PM Rising Scholars - Creating Conditions of Belong for Formerly Incarcerated Students
FLEX # 154
Butte College is pleased to welcome back Shani Shay, Founder and Director of Incarceration to College. She has been actively involved in a college outreach program through the Underground Scholars Initiative, aimed at both in-custody and out-of-custody youth. Through her dedicated efforts, she has developed a comprehensive program designed to support high-risk youth, guiding them from their initial interactions with the system all the way through their college journeys. It is worth noting that research indicates that although more than 90% of juveniles express a desire to obtain a college degree, less than 10% ultimately achieve this goal (Kremer 2009).

Shani Shay brings her wealth of expertise to the table, shedding light on how having these students within our educational space can yield positive and mutually beneficial outcomes. This extends not only to the students themselves but also to their instructors and the entire campus community as a whole.
TRising Scholars - Creating Conditions of Belong for Formerly Incarcerated Student
2:00 PM - 2:50 PM Are Your Classes Equitable? Using Student Equity Data to Improve Student Outcomes
FLEX # 656
Have you ever wondered if your curriculum and pedagogy are equally engaging for all your students? Are you interested in seeing how different groups of students are performing in your classes? If so, this session is for you. During this workshop, you will learn how to understand and analyze a data packet that breaks down student success rates by race and gender for all courses taught over the past ten years or however long you’ve been teaching at Butte College. Faculty who attend the workshop will then be given access to their own personalized student equity reports. This workshop will also focus on the emotional and cognitive load of engaging in this highly personalized equity work, and we will provide resources to support you through your journey to equitize your classes. NOTE: Equity data packets are only available for faculty who have taught at least 10 courses at Butte College because you need to have taught enough students for the data to be statistically significant. 
2:00 PM - 2:50 PM Online Tutoring for Your Students in CAS
FLEX # 229
Meet us in Zoom at Online CAS (ONC) for this interactive workshop. Through ONC students can access free online tutoring in the evenings from their homes! They can also get one-to-one support from a Faculty member and much more.  Our tutors are Butte College students and staff, so they are familiar with our courses, college-wide resources, and the issues we face as a community. Come learn about how easy it is to access these services. Help your students increase their chances of succeeding in your class and at Butte College. 
2:00 PM - 2:50 PM Student Conduct, Rights, and Responsibilities
FLEX # 230
When and why should you complete a Behavioral/Academic Incident Report? Student discipline problems are on the rise, and the number of student appeals and complaints have gone up dramatically. What you don’t know about your rights and student due process can cause both you and the student unnecessary problems. Topics of discussion will include: What constitutes disruption? How do you report an incident? What happens after you submit a report?

We will also cover existing emergency procedures such as lockdown and evacuation. It will end with an open question and answer session with members of your Police Department.
