Faculty and Staff

Faculty and Staff play a very important role in our QEP/Read for LIFE initiative. Faculty and Staff OWN the QEP! In fact, from its very inception, faculty and staff input decided that BCTC s Quality Enhancement Plan would focus on reading, thus Read for LIFE (Learning, Information, Fulfillment, Entertainment) was born.

As QEP/Read for LIFE owners, find out more about:

  • three Read for LIFE goals and data gathered relating to those goals.
  • Sharefest: encourages a regular exchange of instructional ideas among full-time and part-time reading faculty in order to strengthen students learning experience in reading courses.
  • the COMPASS Reading Refresher: ensures that reading placement, along with advising for students placing into reading courses, is as accurate as possible by offering students COMPASS Reading tutoring through Blackboard s eCommunity, (available from all campuses).
  • Reading Partnerships that develop and utilize discipline-appropriate classroom reading strategies and materials across the curriculum, (note: Reading Partnerships offer one course-release for faculty that partner with a reading instructor).
  • trained RDG 020 Reading Advisors, along with the RDG 020 Advising Checklist, and Mandatory Placement documents.
  • QEP/Read for LIFE Professional Development online.
