To close out the spring term, the National Convergence Technology Center (CTC) has two more “Brown Bag” webinars scheduled. First launched in 2020, the Brown Bag series offers special topic presentations via bite-sized, 30-minute segments on both technical and “soft” topics. To date, these webinars have been attended “live” by close to 500 people with another 1100 views of the recordings on YouTube.
This Wednesday, May 24 (12:30pm Central), Muhammad Shoaib, Associate Faculty at Collin College in North Texas and Full Stack Developer at Magnit, will discuss APIs. What is API? What is REST, SOAP and GRAPHQL? How do they relate to one another? Which API should you choose? Attendees will learn about APIs and what different techniques are used to communicate between services. This presentation is intended to help faculty start thinking about building curriculum for APIs.

Then on Wednesday, June 14 (12:30pm Central), Dr. Ryan Bradshaw, Department Chair for Business Education and Technology at Johnston Community College in North Carolina, will discuss the art of persuasion. Being a content expert is important. Having an organizational goal is important. However, if you cannot articulate those goals and motivate others to come together toward a desired outcome, all the expertise in the world will go out the window and you will find your leadership skills wanting. In this webinar, attendees will learn important aspects of relationship building that are vital to achieving organizational goals.
