It's hard to believe 2014 is right around the corner.
What goals have you set for yourself? What goals have you set for your organization?
One month into the new year, LERN will present Nine Shift: Higher Education in the 21st Century, a Strategic Planning Seminar, to help you set the stage for success in 2014 and beyond.
Two of education's leading futurists and LERN leaders, William Draves and Julie Coates, will head the two-day seminar in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Feb. 5 and 6.
Coates and Draves are co-authors of “Nine Shift: Work, life and education in the 21st Century," and “The Pedagogy of the 21st Century.”
Community and technical college decision makers, including college presidents and vice presidents, should attend this seminar, as should directors of planning, chief academic officers, continuing education heads and other senior college decision makers.
Sessions include The New Mission of Higher Education Institutions in the 21st Century, which will focus on having a successful transition from the Industrial Age to the Information Age; and The Top 11 Retention and Completion Strategies, which will focus on no-cost strategies that will boost retention and completion rates.
In its fourth year, the Nine Shift Strategic Planning Seminar already has helped leaders from colleges and universities across the country, including Tiffin University, New Mexico State University at Roswell, Delaware Technical & Community College, and many others.
Attendees will have the chance to participate in open dialogue with other senior decision makers and take home research and evidence that's not available anywhere else.
