Limited seating is available for a special session for senior VCCS leaders with Dr. Dee Fink. Designed for Presidents, Provosts, VPs and Deans of Academics, and hosted by Sharon Morrissey, this special session focuses on what college leaders can do in four key areas (student learning, educational programs, organizational operations, and campus culture) to improve the overall quality of teaching and learning.
Title: “Promoting Better Teaching and Learning Across the Institution”
Time: Wednesday, April 13, 9:00-11:00 am
Place: Hotel Roanoke, Pocahontas Room
Faculty leaders and administrators at most colleges and universities want their institution to continually improve and work toward better teaching and better learning. Only in this way can students who enroll here expect the best quality education available. What are some of the things that campus leaders can do, that would in fact move this agenda forward?
