Camp InspirEd

Summer Camp @MCC!

In the summer of 2010 the MCC Center for Teaching & Learning (CTL) created Camp Innovate as an outlet for faculty and staff  to learn and share strategies for best practices in teaching and learning. Now named Camp Inspired, the event is a collaboration with Foundations for Student Success and continues to focus on professional development in the areas of educational methods, technologies, productivity and leadership.

Camp Highlights

Letters from Camp. Hear What Former Campers Have to Say!

“I learned so many things about apps at camp! It was really fun and exciting. I can’t wait to try a few of my favorites in class this fall.”

“I would say that all of the sessions offered were relevant to teaching and learning and to improving instruction in the classroom.”

“Camp innovate is a fun way to stay up on district technology.”

“If you want to improve your teaching skills and lessons or just learn new technology for the classroom, sign up.”

“If one does not attend, they are missing out on a fabulous campus resource and it is the quality of a national workshop event!”

“Just try camp out! You’ll never know what new friends or tools you’ll make!”

“The CTL employee’s are fun and make the learning all that much better. There are lots of things that you can learn to improve your departments or class room’s team work and work flow and help you interact with the students.”

“It’s a good chance to get your feet wet with new technology and hear what has worked for others.”
