The LCC Planning Team is pleased to announce a few updates on this year’s conference.
We have explored many themes over the last few years but wanted to return to our roots for LCC 2023 as we searched for a message that would help celebrate our culture.
The LCC Planning Team began their journey by reviewing the participant feedback from last year’s conference and met with various groups at the college to learn about new college initiatives. These observations were shared with our SLC Communications department and they worked diligently to amalgamate the ideas into one coherent message using one word: Relate.
Relate - “Learning through Connections”
This year, LCC is all about how we relate to one another, to our students, and to our world at large. Relating is an action involving sharing, connecting, and being open to learning from what other people have to say or have experienced. This year’s conference will have as much personal relevance as professional, as we come together as a community to grow, learn, be entertained, and inspired.
We believe this theme will help us celebrate our SLC community and remind us of the reciprocal nature of relationships. Hold the dates May 16-17, 2023 in your calendar so you can be part of learning through connections with your SLC peers at LCC 2023!
First Keynote of LCC 2023
This year’s conference will begin with a virtual keynote by Dr. Sarah Rose Cavanaugh, author of “The Spark of Learning: Energizing the College Classroom with the Science of Emotion”, “Hivemind: Thinking Alike in a Divided World”, and “Mind Over Monsters: Supporting Youth Mental Health with Compassionate Challenge”, as she teaches us how emotion can be used to build stronger relationships and promote learning.
We invite you to read more about Dr. Cavanaugh’s work by visiting the LCC website.
