After seven years and five unconferences, we have decided that THATCamp Community College 2019 will be our final unconference. We would like to thank all campers who attended over the years and for the support we have gotten both locally and around the tri-state area and, frankly, the world.

News! Fri, 31 May 2019 13:25:35 +0000

THATCampCC 2019 is over…we are grateful to those who attended this year. Some news: William is stepping down as coordinator of THATCampCC. We announced this on social media awhile ago, but thought it would be good to post on the website as well.

Thanks to everyone who has attended or helped out since we first planned this in 2012. News about the future of THATCampCC will be announced in the fall.

Session Proposal: Teaching Literature In A Course On Digital & Electronic Literature Wed, 08 May 2019 21:05:49 +0000

A camper has sent in the following proposal: Teaching literature in a course on Digital and Electronic Literature. I’ll preview my new course being offered on just that, think through approaches to literature and writing in a course on born-digital lit, and get people thinking about community college-specific strategies for teaching, learning, and collaboration. Will have some examples that people can access via smart phones and other platforms. Anyone with any interest, familiar with e-lit or not, is welcome, as are gamers, as the difference (?) between games and e-lit is a fruitful conversation.

Session Idea: Generation Z Students Wed, 08 May 2019 20:58:54 +0000

A camper has proposed a session about the incoming traditional age students known as Gen Z focusing on the research around this population and the classroom and campus changes that are improving persistence for them.

Session Idea: The Fall & The Spring Fri, 12 Apr 2019 12:52:58 +0000

A camper has proposed a session on the differences between the fall and spring semesters. Faculty often see varying results in student performance, assessments, and evaluations. There are a number of factors that could be connected to this both inside academia and outside of it and it would be worthwhile to have a conversation in a session.

Session Idea: Bridging Gaps Between High School & Community College Sat, 30 Mar 2019 14:37:16 +0000

A camper would like to do a session on how we can bridge gaps between the learning experience in high schools and community colleges.

Session Idea: Search Is Broken Sat, 23 Mar 2019 14:26:55 +0000

A camper wants to do a session on search. It’s really hard these days to teach students how to effectively use the web when search results often bring up non-credible, inaccurate, or out of date results.

Session Idea: Screens & College Students Sat, 16 Mar 2019 13:29:08 +0000

A camper wants to moderate a session about what extent does screens therapize college students versus to what extent do screens propagate problems for them. How do we teach composure in an era of high anxiety? How do we teach in a way that is empathetic to different ideologies? Is social media an active space for debate? Must we accept everything that is posted on a wall, or is it a space that should encourage challenging of ideas?

Session Idea: FERPA In The Digital Age Sat, 09 Mar 2019 15:12:25 +0000

A camper has proposed a session about FERPA in the digital age. What is the relationship to AI and censorship online and in the classroom? What does FERPA mean in regards to Google Drive?
