May 5 Crane Pick

On May 5th at about 7:00am, the Hunt Union Project will be setting a crane at the South-West corner area of the building to lower three large pieces of electrical switch gear down into the mechanical room. The operation should take about six hours to complete. We will zone off the lifting area which will take the six handicap parking spots as well as prevent pedestrian traffic across Bugbee Rd to Hunt Union at the ‘Information Board’. Pedestrian traffic will gain access to the building at the pond entrance or the West entrance by way of the Hunt parking lot. The handicap parking will be temporarily located at the East-Rear entrance of Hunt Union. The attached area map indicates the crane location along with alternate routing to Hunt Union.

TUTOR TRAINING FOR TEACHING ASSISTANTS

Will you have a TA who tutors next fall?  CADE is offering TUTOR TRAINING FOR TEACHING ASSISTANTS. In addition to introducing key concepts of how to plan and evaluate the effectiveness of an individual tutoring interaction, we will help TAs recognize the line between helping a student understand concepts without inadvertently doing the work (or the thinking) for the student. For more information about how we can help your TA work effectively with your students, please call Amy Crouse-Powers at x2819 or email her at Amy.Crouse-Powers@oneonta.edu.
