Changing Classroom Cultures

BCTC’s 8th Annual Changing Classroom Cultures Conference

February 21 - February 22, 2014

Bluegrass Community & Technical College invites all KCTCS full-time & adjunct faculty and staff to join our FREE 8th annual Changing Classroom Cultures Conference on Friday afternoon, February 21st and Saturday, February 22nd.

The focus of this year’s conference is “The First Year Again.” In celebration of the idealism and passion we embodied in our first year of teaching, presenters will share curricular, pedagogical, and advising innovations (face-to-face and online; high tech, low tech, and no tech) that have reinvigorated them as community college educators.


All participants are encouraged to register to assist with catering and logistics.
