    I will NOT be teaching MIC101 on Saturdays this Winter Quarter. The class will be taught by another instructor. Sorry!



    WINTER Quarter 2015 info will be updated a week or so before Winter Quarter begins.



    FALL Quarter is OVER!!!


    GRADING IS DONE!! NO late work will be allowed, and all assignments are closed, no matter what. You should be able to see what CANVAS calculated for your grade point when you log in and look at your grades - it is in the upper right corner. I have graded all finals, and submitted the quarter's grades to the SCC system. You can get your grade there on December 16, 2014. I will not be able to handle queries until after Winter Quarter starts, and I will not renegotiate grades or be able to change anyone to a non-credit or incomplete. Please see my Class FAQS if you have general questions.


    In the next few days, I will move the ITC102 website link to Past Classes. MIC102e has already had the link moved to Pas Classes. I will archive our assignments and grades on CANVAS, and I will archive our emails.


    I am on break from Wednesday, December 10, until Monday, January 5, 2014. I have set my Out-of-Office email response, and I will be away from email until next Tuesday at the earliest.I will be checking email rarely and not available to visit campus until Monday, January 5, 2014.


    If you have an urgent need, please contact the BITCA division office at 206-587-3830 or the Information Technologies office at 206-516-3150.

    Have an excellent break!





    Mission, Vision & Values

    I feel that teaching is a privilege. I get the opportunity to share information about topics I love and work in, with folks I'll get to see grow in the design and IT industries later. My goal is to give as much current information as possible in an as fun and interactive learning way that I can!


    My mission for teaching includes:

    • Providing current skills training for a competitive workplace
    • Encouraging professional workflow and communications techniques
    • Helping students help themselves prepare to flourish in their IT careers


    Code of Ethics

    L.J.'s classes have a Code of Ethics which exists to help everyone work well together, make learning fun and useful, and promote great behavior practices for school and the work world:

    • Arrive on time
    • Don't cut class
    • Mute smartphones and other devices
    • Don't take over the class with personal discussions
    • Don't text or do email business during class
    • Don't cheat/slack off, which includes plagiarizing, collusion, and turning in demo work as assignment work


    About LJ Bothell (Bio)


    LJBHi there! I'm L.J. Bothell and I don't stand on much formality. I'm from Seattle, WA, and have been doing design and communications of one kind or another for over 20 years. I have a BA in Liberal Arts, an AAS in print graphic design, a Certificate in web design, and a Certificate in web development. It's a wonder my head doesn't fall right off!


    I've been lucky to have trained with some cool instructors and to have worked a lot. I have experience doing permanent, contract, freelance, and pro-bono work. I have worked in healthcare, real estate, education, nonprofit, transportation, travel, and marketing-related areas. I can work on both PCs and Macs and in many programs. I do web and print design and production, project planning and coordination, a teensy bit o'dev, and sometimes I write and get stuff published. Oh, and I am terribly addicted to Starbucks mochas. Terribly.


    Here are a few links below to work I have designed/produced. Some are snapshots in my portfolio site, others are currently live.
