Origami is just one of the many hands-on activities that are always out and available to students in the Library. The advantages of offering origami are the: low-cost, infinite possibilities, ageless, multicultural and eco-friendly, to name a few.

Survival Tips for New (and not so new) Teachers
Try Something New
Peer to Peer observation is a great way to build collegial relationships as well as to add professional development time into your day. With Pineapple Charts, teachers post planned lessons that you think others would be interested in seeing on a community chart. You share the day, period and lesson topic for others to see match their needs and interest with what others on campus are doing. The chart should be posted in a communal area where all have access to add information and look for learning opportunities (faculty workroom, online shared space). The hope is that all can benefit from learning from each other in a welcoming and supportive manner. Here is the link to the Pineapple Chart you see above.
All reservations for Lab, ChromeBook Carts/Tubs, iPads and VR Equipment can be found here.
