ILO Selfie Contest       

Hi Everyone, Show your school spirit! The ILO selfie contest ends on March 18th. Please spread the word! You should enter, too! The Learning Assessment Committee is sponsoring another ILO contest as part of our Student Awareness Campaign. As you know, one of the ACCJC requirements is to make sure that students know about our Institutional Learning Outcomes, so this contest is a great way to do that! This semester’s contest involves students taking selfies next to one of the five ILO banners or one of the many ILO posters located around campus and then posting the photos to the Laney College LAC Facebook page. Students will also write a caption explaining why this ILO is meaningful to them. The grand prize is an iPad 2 Air. The flyer advertising the contest with all the details is attached. Feel free to print the flyer and make copies for your students. We made a simplified flyer in addition to the original flyer with the pictures. Use whichever one you want. And guess what?? Faculty and staff can enter the contest too! The prizes for faculty and staff are one of five $20 gift certificates for the Laney Bistro. Take a selfie next to one of the ILO posters or banners, and post it to the “Laney College LAC” Facebook page. In your caption, explain how one of the ILOs best relates to what you do at Laney, and why it’s meaningful to you. Winners will be randomly chosen.   Please specify that you are faculty or staff in your post.   Contest details are available at:   Contest details are also available on:
