VCCS Developmental English Workshop

Welcome to the VCCS Developmental English Workshop information page! This year's VCCS Developmental English Workshop will be held November 15, 2012 at the Hilton Garden Inn, 501 E. Broad Street in Richmond, VA. This will be a great opportunity for those who are teaching Developmental English to connect with everyone and to tap into the power of group synergy just before we implement our new Developmental English courses in January 2013.

Further details about this workshop will be posted on this page as they become available. If you have any questions regarding the meeting's programming or agenda, please contact Nan Ottenritter,

The Developmental English Workshop begins with lunch at 11:30 a.m. followed by working sessions that include:

  • Student Engagement: Keeping Students Connected
  • Student Services: Helping Students Make the Connections
  • Best Practices: What Works

The workshop will conclude at 3:45 p.m. We will have a celebratory reception in Salons 4-5 on the lower level from 5:15 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
