Genius and insanity: CMC Theatre’s ‘Proof’ considers both sides of equation

David Auburn’s play “Proof” opens Feb. 7 at Colorado Mountain College in Spring Valley.

Catherine and her father Robert are alike in many ways, leaving Catherine to worry whether she’ll inherit his genius for math, his mental instability or both. Her sister Claire and her father’s student Hal help Catherine shed light on which it will be.

The cast of four features CMC theater students Cora Wettlin as Catherine and David Collier as Hal. CMC theater graduate Cassidy Willey plays the role of Claire, and veteran actor and director G. Thomas Cochran plays Robert. They are directed by Brad Moore.

The play will be performed Feb. 7, 8, 13, 14 and 15 at 7:30 p.m., with matinees Feb. 9 and 16 at 2 p.m. in the New Space Theatre at Colorado Mountain College in Spring Valley. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students, seniors, staff and faculty and can be reserved at svticketsales@coloradomtn.edu or 947-8177, or purchased with cash or check at the door.

Canvas: Quizzes and Rubrics
Feb 17 – Feb 20 all-day

Take your assessment to the next level with quizzes and rubrics! This course introduces participants to creating quizzes and using rubrics in Canvas. Prerequisite: experience using Canvas, or completion of Canvas: Basics Online or another Canvas training. This session will take place completely online in the Canvas learning management system, at coloradomtn.instructure.com. It will take place over 4 days: it begins on Monday morning and ends Thursday afternoon. There are deadlines for each day’s work to keep the group moving forward together, but participants may work on the assignments at any time of day or night, from any computer (PC or Mac) with an Internet connection and either Firefox, Safari, Chrome, or Internet Explorer. This course will include:

  • explanation and exploration of the kinds of quizzes and surveys that Canvas offers
  • learning to build Canvas quizzes and how to grade them
  • the opportunity to take a quiz in Canvas to experience the student perspective
  • working with and managing question banks in Canvas
  • how to create a rubric in Canvas and apply it to a graded item
  • opportunities for practice with rubrics

In addition to these tasks, the group will also be communicating via the course discussions. Some of the tasks must be done outside of this training’s main course, in a “sandbox” course where all the participants will have an instructor role. This “sandbox” course will be provided for course participants.

Best Practices in Online Courses Webinar
Feb 18 @ 9:30 am – 10:30 am

Developing and delivering a great online course is a challenge with constantly evolving technology and industry standards, so the Online Course Quality Task Force worked hard last fall to do the research for you! This team of CMC faculty and staff established a set of standards and best practices to ensure CMC online courses are consistently high-quality learning environments that facilitate active learning and a positive learning and teaching environment. Join Karen Kaemmerling, Instructional Chair for Online Learning, to discuss online course design and delivery standards established by the CMC Online Course Quality Task Force. This live one hour webinar will encourage open discussion, questions, and feedback about the recommendations of the committee.

This webinar will be held via a Collaborate web conference. The link to join the webinar will be sent via email to registered participants; you can also contact the webinar’s instructor for the link.

Visit this webpage ahead of time to check your browser and ensure sure it’s ready for use with Blackboard Collaborate webconferencing. If you are not familiar with Blackboard Collaborate, then we suggest that you watch this 7-minute Participant Orientation tutorial video.
