devEd Workshop Invitation

We’re hoping to have faculty, staff and administrators from community and technical colleges all around Washington to join us for a developmental education workshop—see initial details below:

Olympic College is interested in bringing Diego Navarro of the Academy for College Excellence at Cabrillo College in Aptos, CA to our campus for a two-day experiential workshop in January, 2012.  Mr. Navarro has visited Washington at least twice before:  November, 2010 at the Pre-College Conference in Bellevue, WA and again in February, 2011 at Bates Technical College for a Friday morning workshop experience.  We would like to open his presentation to faculty, staff, and administrators from other colleges.   We are considering either a full day on a Friday with a half day Saturday (or the other way around), in late January. 

Please reply directly to Mary Garguile, or Mary Ann Kelso,  to let them know of your interest.
