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.
Registration is now closed. You are still welcome to attend the afternoon sessions by McGraw-Hill, Pearson, and Cengage.
