Faculty Development Day – Aug. 27
Mark your calendars for the fall opening Faculty Development Day on Wednesday, Aug. 27. The IFEX team has been busy planning an interesting and informative day of professional development for both full-time and adjunct faculty. The event will be held at the South Omaha Campus in the ITC building. The day runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is scheduled as follows:
8:30–8:50 a.m. Coffee, calories and conversation
9–11:20 a.m. General session: Enrollment, Retention, and the Millennial Generation
Mark Perna, founder of Tools for Schools.
Dynamic enrollment and retention expert Mark C. Perna will share the secrets to increasing enrollment, retention and graduation rates. Stop being the “best-kept secret in town” through the implementation of decisive and timely strategies that remain critical in today’s competitive educational marketplace. Discover the keys to the Millennial Generation — what makes them tick, how they make decisions and the critical tactics for connecting, engaging and retaining Millennials in greater numbers through graduation. Many schools have already benefited from these powerful best-practice principles and strategies, which you can put to work immediately in your organization for great results.
