Announcing the 2012 MCC Math & Technology Workshop

The 5th annual MCC Math & Technology Workshop will be August 6-10, 2012. ¬†It seems hard to believe that we’ve been welcoming math instructors to Muskegon to learn about technology for four years now, but I guess it must be so.

Thought I would share some of the comments from 2011 participants: I would definitely recommend...

2011 MCC Math & Technology Workshop

Enough volunteers have stepped forward to allow us to go forward with a 2011 Math & Technology Workshop. ¬†This will be the fourth year running for this workshop, which (for the record) is run entirely by volunteers. ¬†The dates will be August 8-12, 2011. We will only do ONE LEVEL this year, Math Technology Bootcamp, but this will free up space for more participants at this level than in previous years (45 instead of 27). ¬†I’m announcing this now so that you can a) clear your schedule, b) clear your funding, and c) fight with your colleagues over who...

Workshop Foibles

What can go wrong at a week-long workshop? I’m going to share these in hopes that you can plan for some of these possible (and unanticipated) problems.¬† These are all the things that went wrong last week.¬† To read what went right, go to 2009 MCC Math & Technology Workshop. We started out the week with a freak thunderstorm that took out the power in the conference hotel for two days.¬† No way to plan for this one.¬† Luckily, all of our participants made it to town safely (with a few delays and scary drives).¬†¬† On the second day all the participants were relocated to a second “sister” hotel for the same rate ($60 a night). On the third day we prayed that power would come back on in the original hotel because all the participants had to move back.¬† Thankfully, it did.¬† The good thing to know here, is that if some freak weather event should happen to your conference hotel, they may have a sister hotel that they can move the guests to. Both my designated logistics person and the back-up to the logistics person had last-minute issues that kept them from being able to help out.¬† That means nobody to double check catering orders, to make phone calls about hotel issues, or to handle last-minute copies or supply runs.¬† I’ll admit, this one was the toughest...
