League for Innovation

The League for Innovation in the Community College hosted the 19th annual Innovations Conference March 12-15, 2017, in San Francisco, California this year.

Innovations 2017 is the premier event for professionals dedicated to improving organizational teaching and learning, and discovering new approaches for enhancing the community college experience. This international conference provides a forum for collaboration among academic experts and leading community college professionals, while granting participants exclusive access to the most inventive and thought-provoking programs from around the world.

This year Paradise Valley was well represented having three presenters: Jon Hayashi (Biology), Caron Sada (Psychology), and Carolyn Miller (Instructional Designer).
John & Suanne Roueche Excellence Awards
Three Paradise Valley faculty and staff were also recognized during the conference.
  • Doug Berry (Psychology)
  • Abigail Rusu (CIS BPC)
  • Carolyn Miller (Center for Teaching and Learning)
The League established the John & Suanne Roueche Excellence Awards in 2012. These awards are open to League Board and Alliance member institutions to celebrate outstanding contributions and leadership by community college faculty and staff. Recipients are recognized in a series of activities and promotions, and honored at special events at the League's Innovations Conference each spring.
