The theme of the 2014 Spring Forum is Constructing Pathways to Learning. Based on the Strategic Plan, the following sub-themes are being expanded upon in this Spring Forum:
- Student-Friendly: based on Lever 1.1—Develop a more student-centric campus to recruit and retain qualified students
- Student-Focused: based on Lever 1.3—Reduce net costs to students
- Student-Centered: based on Lever 3.1.1—Transform academics (by creating student-centered online, face-to-face and hybrid courses).
We will be joined by representatives from Cengage Learning, McGraw-Hill Education and Pearson.
The Spring Forum on Teaching and Technology is limited to 40 UMSL Faculty. Please register early since space is limited.
