Three Educational Session Tracks for Your Presentation

All proposals must indicate one of the following concurrent conference tracks:

The Art of Developing Entrepreneurial Leaders

Higher education now requires a clear commitment to the pursuit of excellence with a convergence of competencies in entrepreneurial understanding (knowledge, skills, and values) with sensitivity to the world, innovation in simple things, and thinking outside of the box. Teaching, modeling, and engaging students in entrepreneurial opportunities, not only falls in line with many curriculum standards, but also prepares learners for a lifetime of understanding and opportunity. Join us on a journey to identify strategies that will serve the leaders of tomorrow with a blueprint for life-long success.

Teaching Excellence

This track focuses on best practices for the classroom, assessment of student learning and online delivery of learning.

Accreditation Process

These sessions focus on the actual processes associated with initial accreditation, maintenance of accreditation and reaffirmation of accreditation. Presentations should demonstrate linkages between institutional experience and the accreditation processes. Potential topics include involving the faculty in the preparation of self-study or quality assurance reports, lessons learned and obtaining administrative support when pursuing and obtaining accreditation.
