Kapiʻolani Community College is hosting a free, fully online professional development opportunity for higher education and K–12 professionals, August 2–5.
Subject matter experts and colleagues from Hawaiʻi and beyond will present, interact and discuss topics such as “Stop AAPI Hate & BLM: Where are we at?,” “Utilizing Digital Tools for Student Engagement” and “I See You: Spice Up Your Course Materials with Avatars.” There are even 50-minute health and wellness sessions such as, “Hula: Lessons in Well-Being.”
Last year, Kapiʻolani CC hosted 43 sessions and 291 participants in the inaugural Summer Camp, who joined in for a Zoom-based week of learning and engagement. These amounted to a total attendance of 1,431. Organizers are hoping to make an even bigger splash this year with some summer professional development fun!
Jamie Sickel, one of 11 ‘camp counselors’ or planning team members, said “Kapiʻolani Summer Camp was borne out of a need for professional development and a strong desire to connect during a time of critical change and social distancing last summer, and it resulted in an amazing opportunity to learn from and alongside one another in a relevant, engaging and truly joyous way. We invite and encourage anyone and everyone interested to join us for as many sessions as you’d like. It’s free, it’s scalable and it’s a wonderful opportunity to celebrate learning!”
