New Year Resolutions

Welcome back to the beginning of a new year and a new semester!  Starting a new calendar year usually, signifies time where people reflect back on the last year and establish goals going into the new year. I am sure many of you share this similar experience as it is a cultural tradition. Many of these goals or resolutions focus on self-improvement such as traveling more, losing weight, eating healthy, or saving my money. One resolution that I wanted to share with you for this year is improving time management. As we all know, our schedules are busy both personally and professionally. Finding the perfect workflow is something that we all strive for so we can reach our professional goals and enjoy our personal time. With that in mind, I wanted to share important dates for this upcoming semester and a recommended workflow in regards utilizing our Campus Labs modules. If you ever need any assistance with these systems, do not hesitate to contact me at wegerb@iecc.edu or ext. 5533. Also, your College’s Faculty Assessment Coordinator would be more than willing to find a time to work with you as well. Have a great Spring 2017 semester, and soon enough summer will be upon us!
