OLC Innovate 2017 Community College Summit | April 5, 2017
OLC Innovate 2017 seeks to highlight our interconnectedness as educators, and our shared goal to support student engagement and success through innovation. Our collaborative efforts help us to challenge barriers, create new pathways to learning, and ensure that ALL of our learners have access to a quality education. We are honored to have the opportunity to shine a light on the critical work done in the aforementioned areas by the educators supporting community colleges.
We invite you to take part in an inaugural event, the OLC Innovate 2017 Community College Summit, to be held on Wednesday, April 5 from 7:30am-12:00pm, immediately prior to the start of the regular OLC Innovate 2017 Conference program. Join your colleagues for a half-day of ideation, engaging conversation and rich collaboration on creating a roadmap for supporting student success.
About the Summit
Here’s a sneak peak at the agenda:
- Welcome remarks and a breakfast with your fellow participants
- Collaborative ideation sessions where you’ll identify challenges and opportunities related to student success
- Lively panel discussions focusing on the ideas and reflections of participants in the collaborative ideation sessions
- A closing activity and tangible takeaway in the form of an interactive document of effective practices for student success
This summit is NOT your typical, one-to-many presentational format. Your reflections, ideas and input will drive the discussion, and you will have the opportunity to network and collaborate with your colleagues in an active and engaging conference environment. You might even consider inviting your colleagues to join you at the summit to form a mini-cohort.
