What is Netiquette? Simply stated, it's network etiquette -- that is, the etiquette of cyberspace. And "etiquette" means "the forms required by good breeding or prescribed by authority to be required in social or official life." In other words, Netiquette is a set of rules for behaving properly online.

California Great Teachers Seminar

Community College League of California - CCLC

The Community College League of California is a nonprofit public benefit corporation whose voluntary membership consists of the 72 local community college districts in California. Within the League are two major organizations which share a common mission, staff, and fiscal resources: the California Community College Trustees (CCCT) and the Chief Executive Officers of the California Community Colleges (CEOCCC).


The California Great Teachers Seminar has been held annually since 1979, involving over 1200 faculty members. The seminar is both inspiring and relaxing. It brings together teachers from all disciplines, counselors, librarians, and other faculty, both full-time and part time, to explore successes and innovations and solutions to problems. In spite of what the name might suggest, the seminar is not so much a gathering of teachers who are already great as it is a group of dedicated educators seeking the “great teacher” within.

(Hosted by the Faculty Association of California Community Colleges.)
