Understanding the 40 Hour Workweek
Have you ever wished that someone would explain something to you using a bunch of numbers, acronyms, and arithmetic in a podcast! Well then, welcome to your dream come true. In this third episode of our series "The Contract Says What?" Meridyth and I will now attempt to explain how a 40-hour workweek is calculated for all full-time faculty from 4 lecture classes to non-instructional without student contact and everything in between. Enjoy! --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/sbccdta/message

Interview with ASCCC Vice-President Ginni May
This very special episode of Amplify Your Voice is our very first interview. YES! Like real podcasters. It was crazy exciting. Meridyth and I were able to sit down with ASCCC Vice-President Ginni May. So many thanks to Ginni for giving us time in her very busy schedule and for being so awesomely prepared for the interview. Our interview covers what skills are most applicable for statewide work, the relationship between ASCCC and the local senates, and how faculty can pivot on ASCCC resources to amplify their voices. We hope for this to be the first in a series of podcasts that focus on making the many governance roles and entities on our campuses, in our district, and throughout the state more understandable and accessible. --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/sbccdta/message
