Society is changing as we move from the Industrial Age to the Internet Age. The Nine Shift Seminar in Fort Lauderdale

In just 20 years, between 2000 and 2020, some 75 percent of our lives will change dramatically. We know this because it happened once before: Between 1900 and 1920, life changed.

At the 2014 Nine Shift Seminar, Feb. 5-6 in Fort Lauderdale presenters William A. Draves and Julie Coates will share their exclusive 21-action recommendations for strategic planning for community and technical colleges as we move into the next 10 years.

As the presenters prepare for the Nine Shift seminar, we thought we'd offer you a sneak peek of some of the things that will be discussed at the seminar by giving you the first chapter of "Nine Shift" to download.

"Nine Shift" explores:

  • The keys for successfully transitioning to the new century
  • New perspectives on work, life and education
  • The changing learning and teaching styles of the 21st century 


Community and technical colleges will need to be transformed to meet the new requirements of society, the local economy, students and the quality of life in the community. The need for discussion and dialogue about strategic planning has never been greater.

Dive deeper into these topics and learn about the implications for repositioning your community or technical college for success in the new century at the Nine Shift seminar this spring.
