I was lucky enough to enjoy Professor Paula Cancro’s Digital Literacy in the Workplace class.  We spent much of the class accessing Windows 2016, shared folders in OneDrive, which allow students to collaborate and chat online while they work on shared projects, from home, work, school, even while traveling.

Students had fun during ‘Club Day’!

Wednesday, February 8, 2017

Students had the opportunity to walk around the Student Center, ask questions, and sign up to those clubs that looked more appealing to them.

CW’s clubs and organizations offer a variety of opportunities for personal growth, professional leadership and service. These groups also allow students to pursue interests in the arts, sports, business, technology, and public service.

This week’s class was the first day college class I attended.  Hematology, led by Professor Veronica Jones was very interesting.  This course is a part of the Medical Assisting Management program.  The lesson was about stopping the chain of spreading infection, wearing personal protective equipment (PPE), dealing with biohazards properly, and possible situations and how to deal with them in a lab, doctor’s office, medical center or hospital setting.

How to Turn “Busy” Into Productive

Monday, February 6, 2017

Have you ever suddenly looked at up the clock in the afternoon feeling like you haven’t actually gotten anything done?  With many of us juggling work, school, family, and social obligations (and this is to say nothing of the endless stream of notifications flashing across the various screens we look at all day, every day), it can be easy for the day to get away from you, even if you feel like you never even stopped for a break. The good news is, there’s something you can do about it.
