About the Reflective Writing Club and @ONE (Online Network of Educators)
The Reflective Writing Club is a Community offering from @ONE - Online Network of Educators. @ONE is a collaborative, system-wide network of California Community College faculty, staff, and administrators and is coordinated by the professional development team of the CCC Online Education Initiative (OEI). @ONE provides training and professional development to support the effective use of digital tools and platforms to make California Community Colleges a nationally recognized leader in online teaching and learning. Funding from the California Community College Chancellor’s Office Telecommunication and Technology Infrastructure Program (TTIP) ensures that @ONE’s offerings are provided for free or a very low cost.
Through its network of dedicated educators, @ONE provides professional development that is technology-based but student-focused, with the goals of:
- Improving retention and success rates of California’s diverse online community college student population.
- Improving the online learning experience for all students, including students with disabilities, students with basic skills needs, and students from underserved populations.
- Decreasing the cost of education for students by providing training and support for colleges to leverage OEI-procured tools and platforms.
- Ensuring all CCC faculty and staff possess the digital literacy skills to inspire and prepare students for success in the digital age.
@ONE achieves these goals by providing a robust suite of professional development offerings including online courses; webinars; certificate programs; and light-weight, flexible community-based programs like the Reflective Writing Club.
