HCC Goal: Student Learning
This workshop is the core of many faculty development opportunities that seeks to have
the greatest impact possible upon student learning.
From HCC Strategic Plan 2008-2011:
“Helping students achieve their fullest potential requires an institution’s commitment to
support them in reaching their educational and career goals.
HCC, an Achieving the Dream college, will continue to invest significant time and
resources toward improving student learning.
Through innovative methods of
course delivery, teaching practices, and support services, our students will progress
through their education, career and personal goals as we provide
the support leading to student learning.”

HCC Measurement: Student Engagement
As HCC works to achieve its vision, the institution utilizes several critical indicators to measure the plan of action
and chart progress. Institutional targets are defined on an annual basis in order to report on each of the six goal
areas to achieve our vision: student learning, effective leadership, resource development and engagement, global
perspective, effective communication, and accountability and strategic decision-making. An indicator for student
success specifically related to teaching and learning is student engagement as defined by the Community College
Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE) educational research organization
1. Academic challenge
2. Active and collaborative learning
3. Faculty-student interaction
4. Support for learning
5. Student effort.
Other indicators (see page 32 of HCC Strategic Plan 2008-2011) are: enrollment, retention rates, transfer rates,
and job placement rates. The curriculum for each program sponsored by HCC Center for TLE focuses on preparing
faculty to effectively integrate CCSSE’s effective educational practices into a learner-centered teaching
environment.

Awareness of Oneself
Passage from: The Courage to Teach by Parker Palmer
“Teaching, like any truly human activity, emerges from one’s inwardness,
for better or worse.
As I teach, I project the conditions of my soul onto my students,
my subject, and our way of being together.
The entanglements I experience in the classroom are often
no more or no less than the convulsions of my inner life.
Viewed from this angle, teaching holds a mirror to the end of my soul.
If I am willing to look in that mirror and not run from what I see, I have a chance to gain
self-knowledge – and knowing myself is as crucial to good teaching
as knowing my students and my subject.
In fact, knowing my students and knowing my subject depends heavily on self-knowledge.
When I do not know myself, I cannot know who my students are. I will see them through a glass darkly, in the shadows of my own unexamined life; and when I cannot see them clearly,
I cannot teach them well.”
