Share your professional experience and expertise with colleagues from across the continent at the 2015 Learning Summit, and learn from others at this Intimate gathering of community college educators. The League for Innovation in the Community College invites proposals for this year’s Learning Summit, to be held at the Arizona Grand in Phoenix, Arizona, June 7-10, so plan now to participate.
The 2015 theme, Student Success and Completion, will be featured in five topic areas: student learning outcomes; student engagement; faculty and staff engagement; organizational culture; and quality, inquiry, and accountability.
Described by participants as “intense,” “thought-provoking,” “inspiring,” and “productive,” the Learning Summit is a working retreat for community college teams to connect with colleagues and share experiences, discuss issues, and explore strategies for focusing the entire college on improving and expanding student learning.
Davis Jenkins, senior research associate at the Community College Research Center, Teachers College, Columbia University, will open the Summit on Sunday evening, and on Monday through Wednesday, the program will devote a half-day to each of the five topic areas.
The Summit is a team-based event, with community colleges bringing groups representing all areas of the institution. One veteran participant explained that, “The opportunity to work with our team was truly invaluable. This is always a productive experience.”
Each half-day session offers an interactive symposium, concurrent forums, and conversations about learning. Summit participants are engaged as full partners in all Summit activities.
The deadline to submit a proposal is March 16, 2015. Visit the Learning Summit website (http://www.league.org/ls2015) for more information.
