The Curriculum Committee
Chairperson: Donna Oberembt

Members of the Curriculum Committee organize educational TSO Events, which includes identifying, contacting, and scheduling speakers for between-quarters events. They encourage experts to submit courses to teach for TELOS, and may assist the TELOS office in reviewing courses for interest-level. They may also assist instructors by recruiting class hosts and providing any additional assistance that instructors may need.


The Events Committee

Members of the Events Committee determine which social events will be held, and implement those events through coordination with the BCCE administration and the facility where the event will be held. In addition, the members support the TELOS Clubs. See the Clubs and Social Activities page for more information. Other projects include conducting the annual election, and other events as identified.


The Marketing Committee

The TELOS@Bellevue College Marketing Committee aims to realize our mission to build a lifelong learning community. We have created and are implementing a marketing plan. We partner with the Community Education Team at Bellevue College to support TELOS@Bellevue College students and instructors. Last fall and this winter we hosted 16 Welcome to Zoom sessions and reached over 200 students. Now, led by Steve Denison, we are hosting Zoom for TELOS@Bellevue College Instructors to help our valued instructors make the most of Zoom’s powerful teaching tools.
