Open Wide

It's that time of year... No, I'm not talking about Spring or Easter, Passover, Beltane or one of the holidays we celebrate during this season. I'm talking about the fact that it is once again time for my annual Performance Evaluation here at Salt Lake Community College. For me, as I'm sure it is for most of us working stiffs, it's kind of like my employer's version of a dental exam: the "dentist" (my boss) and I both spend a lot of time forcing a smile while talking about cavities (areas in need of repair) and gum disease (areas in need of changes in my behavior). We also talk a lot about how I can achieve better dental health (goals). I give my own assessment about how well I've been brushing (up on last year's goals) and flossing (cleaning out the bad habits). My boss does a lot of probing and drilling while we negotiate on what changes I am going to make in my routine for this coming year - the objective: a healthy mouth (me) which, in turn, contributes to a healthy body (the College).

Why the ePortfolio is worth your time

The ePortfolio is typically met with a collective groan from Salt Lake Community College students, but ePortfolio coordinator Kati Lewis wants to change that.

Although every SLCC student is required to have an ePortfolio, there seems to be some animosity toward creating and using ePortfolios.

West Valley City, Utah (PRWEB) May 07, 2015

Salt Lake Community College held its commencement ceremony Thursday at the Maverik Center in West Valley City for about 900 of its nearly 3,800 graduates.

SLCC President Deneece Huftalin told graduates to “dare greatly” and to ask “hard” questions of themselves and the world. “The last SLCC lesson then is to never stop dreaming, imagining a new place, idea, or challenge – to ride out your life with full throttle…an open and questioning mind, a full heart, and a thirst for continued invention,” Huftalin said. “Be the doers of your dreams. Create your own story and remember, as Phillip Pullman stated, ‘Thou shalt not’ is soon forgotten, but ‘Once upon a time’ lasts forever. Congratulations.”
