VOL. 10 – SEPTEMBER 17, 2021

As long as you live, keep learning how to live.



SBCTC is offering mini-workshops on the various processes associated with ctcLink. Basically, if you want to learn how to do it – from generating a contract to billing and invoicing to scheduling a class – these workshops are the perfect place to dive a little deeper.

This week, however, there are no scheduled broad interest workshops.

Stay tuned for more information – and for a list of future workshops, you can click here: Key Concepts Schedule.

There’s something else we’d like to bring to your attention- Opening Day is coming up! Since this year’s theme is centered on managing change, we feel it’s the perfect fit companion for the transition to ctcLink.


This year’s Opening Day will be held as a virtual event on Sept. 23. Speakers and breakout sessions will be hosted from 8:45 a.m. to 12:10 p.m. The afternoon is reserved for asynchronous training.

Sessions will be centered on this year’s theme of Managing Change. All presentations will be held online and the full schedule of events, including each session’s title, description, presenters, and login information, can be found on the College-Wide Events page.

Live captioning services will be available for the campus-wide sessions from 8:45 – 10:30 a.m. You can access the stream of live captions at this link: Live Captioning for Opening Day.

Language translation will be available through Microsoft Teams Captions/Subtitles for the campus-wide sessions from 8:45 – 10:30 a.m. in Chinese (simplified), Korean, Russian, Spanish, Thai, and Vietnamese. You can learn how to access the captions through the link: How to turn on Captions/Subtitles Translations.

Adjunct faculty may be eligible for compensation for attending college-wide events under
the BCAHECBA (see article 18.4.4). Adjunct sign-in links will be made available via the chat function for each session during Opening Day.
