Leveraging Collaborative Learning Experiences
to Increase Engagement and Equity

Keynote - Kevin Fleming

Vice President, Planning & Development, Norco College
Founder & CEO, Catapult
Change Agent & Philomath,
Keynote Title: You Can’t Do This Alone 

Description: Many are familiar with the popular African Proverb, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” How do we ‘go together' with our entire institution in elevating Career and Technical Education and work based learning within an overwhelming sea of priorities? No elected Board member or educational leader is fundamentally opposed to shrinking the skills gap, providing essential skills, or serving our communities as economic engines…but do they understand what all that really means?

Join CCC Vice President Dr. Kevin Fleming as we redefine our approach to professional development and stimulate a tipping point at your institution to advance CTE, career readiness, and work-based learning.

Are you a new Dean, Program Manager, or Faculty? Are you responsible for coordinating, managing, or being part of an effective team in the community college setting? Are you an Administrative Assistant who is ready to be a leader?

Leadership Academy 2022 Level 1.0 Testimonials

"I really appreciated the information and hands-on activities. Very relevant and made me think how to improve my instruction and recognizing my personality matrix, especially identifying my warning signs that can create inefficiency and/or roadblocks."

"[I learned that] I am not the only one challenged with navigating the politics within my region. There is greater opportunity for pipelines and pathways for students than I previously realized."

"Mike is an excellent facilitator. As an incoming Department Chair (and outgoing curriculum chair) the insight into processes and personalities resonated and helped with first steps and setting the tone."

"Because I am new to the CCC system, I found that the information on the Chancellor's Office and the Consortia/Sectors will give me insight and knowledge in our systems. I have learned that there are many resources that I can tap into to better understand the CCC machine."

"As a new dean with zero experience in CTE, I found these modules much more
valuable to my work. I would recommend holding the training in December, perhaps the second or third week. This way new deans hired over the summer and fall can participate in this opportunity sooner rather than waiting for the summer.", "Mike Walsh was amazing, I am so thankful for his part in the Leadership 1.0 it created a nice balance, especially for someone new to the college system who loves human interactions. Win-win!", Gained so much information, resources, and understanding. Excited and looking forward to learning more tomorrow.", "As an incoming department chair hoping to inspire faculty to re-ignite passion into teaching so student engagement and equity are front and center, this has been a critical step in recovering from the stress of the disconnect of the pandemic and a way forward to bring other faculty on the journey forward. We can do it - together."

"This is my second time at leadership 1 and I have to say that coming into the event with an existing leadership challenge makes this work SOOOO much more valuable. Lots of takeaways from yesterday, thank you! As always I loved listening to the great work being done by my colleagues throughout the state."
