Free webinar: Learn More About Joining the Convergence College Network

The National Convergence Technology Center’s (CTC) community of practice – called the Convergence College Network (CCN) – is a select cohort of community colleges and universities from across the country that connects IT educators with a wealth of resources to enhance their programs. Currently, there are 93 schools (including 10 universities and one high school) in 31 states across the country.

Any community college or four-year university that offers an IT/convergence degree and certificate program – or is considering offering one – can join the CCN. High schools teaching IT classes are also welcome.

In an effort to further expand the Convergence College Network community, the CTC is hosting a free “awareness webinar” on Friday, November 4 (11:00am-11:30am Central) to share membership benefits and responsibilities.

Register to attend here.  There is no fee to join. It’s 100% free!

Keep in mind that while the CTC is headquartered at Collin College in North Texas, the grant supports IT educational needs across the country.

CCN benefits include…

* Collaborating with other, like-minded educators to incorporate new technologies, build academic alliances, develop strategies for program improvement, and share models for recruitment and retention

* Receiving regular updates on nationwide industry trends and in-demand job skills from the CTC’s Business and Industry Leadership Team (“BILT”)

* Learning how to develop your own regional Business and Industry Leadership Team (BILT) to help get your program better aligned with workforce needs

* Participating in unique cost-reduction virtual labs that share technology resources online among several schools

* Registering early for CTC’s free professional development events in advance of the general public

* Requesting sizable travel reimbursement assistance for CTC professional development events
