iStream Focus: Sustainability Initiatives in Community Colleges

Sustainability Initiatives in Community Colleges

Project Highlights. Winning the 2009 Innovation of the Year Award is only one of the great accomplishments of the Paradise Valley Community College Web-based Class Schedule Team. Others include easy replication and customization of these online resources by sister colleges throughout the Maricopa County Community College District.

Thoughtful Topics. Wes Jackson, president of the Land Institute, challenges community colleges to recognize their role in sustainability initiatives and look forward to the next 1/2 century for long lasting solutions.

Partner Spotlight. NComputing offers virtual desktop solutions to meet green initiatives while reducing demands on IT staff and helping colleges stay current with technology despite budget cuts.

Innovative Educators. Each month iStream offers new webinars focused on professional development resources and training services. Subscribers are eligible for free seating in online webinars through a partnership with Innovative Educators.

TLT Group Opportunities. The League and TLT Group present workshops and TLT archives on iStream, and subscribers have access to a limited number of free seats for TLT events.

eLearning. New eLearning content updates have been added. These courses and programs are available as open educational resources or offered as discounted license agreements to all iStream subscribers.

Ten Questions. Mike Mercer, Executive Director of the Northwest Earth Institute, offers ideas and opportunities supporting the mission of NWEI: Inspiring people to take responsibility for Earth.
