opportunity to expand your teaching toolkit.  Having attended and
presented at the conference held last year, I can tell you from
experience that it is time well spent.  If you have any questions, feel
free to contact me at [log in to unmask]

 

 

Want to learn proven new strategies to increase student retention and
learning?  Go to the On Course National Conference (
http://www.oncourseworkshop.com/Conference.htm) this spring.  Designed
for college educators in all disciplines, the conference offers dozens
of sessions featuring innovative best practices in student
success...from immediately usable instructional and counseling
strategies to campus-wide programs that increase retention and student
academic success. Learn great new strategies from educators who are
changing the lives of their students and transforming their colleges
into learner-centered institutions. Do these approaches work?  Yes!  See
published data at the On Course website: 
http://www.oncourseworkshop.com/Data.htm 

 

Best of all, you won't just hear about how to empower your students to
become active, responsible learners.  You'll experience it! Sessions are
interactive, designed with active learning in mind: No snoozing through
this conference! 

 

Register before February 1st, 2007 to receive the registration Early
Bird Discount and a significantly reduced rate on the hotel room!  (
http://www.oncourseworkshop.com/Conference.htm.) This conference is
offered on March 2-3, 2007, in Dallas, Texas.  Discount hotel rooms are
available now as well, but are limited. 

 

There is also a special pre-conference session (March 1st), a one-day
student success workshop that has limited spaces and is filling very
quickly.  This workshop will give you a foundation to help you get even
more from your conference experience and a whole new batch of empowering
learner-centered strategies to add to your tool box.  This full-day
professional development event, led by On Course Facilitators, will
introduce participants to the eight On Course principles and numerous
learner-centered strategies for empowering students to become active,
responsible learners. It's a bargain rate for a full-day workshop and
not to be missed.
