Tech Trends Day - April 1, 2011
Do you want to help your students get connected? Create fun collaborative learning projects? Encourage your students to communicate effectively in and out of the classroom?
Then, be sure you attend the eighth annual Teaching and Technology Trends Symposium at the Highland Business Center, April 1, 2011. The upcoming event will feature twelve workshops featuring proven technologies you can use to make your teaching and your students' learning more effective. Our special lunch speaker (via Skype) will be Davis Jenkins, one of the nation's leading researchers on ways to increase community college student success.
Organized around 8 topics, the sessions include:
- Well-coordinated, proactive student support services
- Innovation in teaching and methods for improving student success
- Use of data analysis to monitor student progress and guide program improvements
- Targeted programs that provide advising and academic support specially designed for at-risk students
- Emphasis on engaging students, particularly in the first year
- Committees of work groups that monitor and promote students success efforts
- Collaboration across departments, with broadly shared responsibility for ensuring student success
- Strong institutional culture, particularly a willingness to see changes through, even if results take time to become evident
Each session will provide participants with concrete ways to employ the information, resources, tools, and skills learned to their job in the academic year. Faculty and staff will be able to obtain credit towards their training objectives, development plans, or to include in their portfolio.
