More than 40 people from throughout Southern California participated in the May 14 Professional Development Day at Brandman University’s Ontario campus.
Academic advisors and campus directors from Ontario, Riverside, Menifee, Victorville, Irvine and the online campus joined adjunct faculty, full-time faculty and campus clinical coordinators from those campuses to learn more about teaching tools such as Blackboard and Adobe Connect, as well as teaching strategies and campus updates.
Event presenters: Dr. Jalin B. Johnson, Dr. Laura Galloway, Dr. Leticia Rojas , Dr. Nicole Schneider, Dr. Annie Hough-Everage, Campus Director Patrick Pierson, Campus Director Kristin Plapis, Associate Dean Lynn Larsen, Dr. Kimberly Greene
The event also gave the group a chance to honor retiring faculty members Dr. Annie Hough-Everage and Dr. Raymond Hurst, both from the School of Education.
“We are fortunate to have a diverse Professional Development Day (PDD) planning team. Our goal is to offer a rich array of content twice a year to our adjunct faculty, campus clinical coordinators and academic advisors in attendance as a part of our shared learning environment,” said Dr. Jalin B. Johnson, assistant professor in the School of Business and Professional Studies and event facilitator.
