Living Lab Symposium

2nd Annual Living Lab Symposium, April 19, 2017

Save the Date and Call for Presentations

The theme for the symposium is Integrating Elements of the Campus into Instruction. The symposium serves as an annual gathering for instructors making use of their campus as part of their instruction.  The symposium is by instructors for instructors, and works in progress are encouraged as well as projects that have been in use for years.   Sessions are 30 minutes in length.  Presenters do not need to be polished and are encouraged to bring what they have and to tell us about it!

If you have an interest in sharing with other faculty your experience in using an element(s) of your campus in a course, you are encouraged to submit your name and topic to present.  Your presentation should incorporate the following:

  • Concrete descriptions of the course, the campus elements, and how they are integrated into instruction with examples
  • How participants will be able to apply what they learn in their session to their colleges/districts and their daily practice
  • How the discussion of this topic or application of this resource will advance instruction
Chaffey College and interested faculty from other institutions are encouraged to submit your interest or inquire further, please email Theodore Younglove, Dean, Mathematics and Science at Theodore.younglove@chaffey.edu; or call (909) 652-6401.
