Leeward Community College hosted the Pacific Region Learning Summit (PRLS) on May 24-28 on its Pearl City campus. The summit was designed to assist the transformation of instruction by incorporating problem-based learning or reshaping course content for online delivery.
PRLS was a partnership between faculty from Leeward Community College, De Anza Community College, Foothill Community College and National Science Foundation. Guest experts from Oracle Corporation, SRI International and Kapiʻolani Community College participated in the learning summit. PRLS incorporated industry and community involvement through a “Meet and Greet” lunch activity and a “Speed Meeting” where faculty met one-on-one with industry representatives within the local community. PRLS was a huge success and will be an annual event.
