Destination

This annual professional development program brings Valencia colleagues together to explore teaching and learning innovations, challenges, and solutions. Each year's program will feature multiple experiences that will be valuable for faculty who have participated in Destination and those who are new to the experience. Join us this summer to explore teaching and learning innovations, challenges, and solutions with colleagues from diverse fields with varied experiences and interests. All Valencia faculty members, part-time and full-time, are encouraged to apply.

All tracks will award $500 for successful completion.* Like Destination 2017, professional development (PD) hours are not available as an option for the summer portion of the program. If you participate in a track that extends into the fall term, PD hours will be awarded for the fall portion.
