Innovation Forum for Leaders of Community Colleges

Innovation Forum for Leaders of Community Colleges

September 24, 2020 | 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time

Discuss how to use your agility and unique strengths to your advantage as the leader of a two-year institution.

Overview

The changing future of work coupled with a global pandemic presents two massive disruptions to the community college sector. While these shifts bring significant challenges, they also bring tremendous opportunities for innovation, forming new partnerships, and helping revive struggling economies.

Community colleges have historically led the way in terms of agile and responsive programming and will be called to do so once again. In convening this forum, we hope to gather forward-thinking leaders to share some of the innovative ways they are responding to local and regional needs. This two-hour online forum is a space to share emerging practices and models, learn from one another, and brainstorm new approaches.

 

Who Should Attend

This virtual training will benefit leaders of two-year institutions at multiple levels and across functional areas.

 

Limited Attendance

In order to ensure a high-quality learning experience, we have intentionally designed this Virtual Training to have a limited number of total attendees. To ensure access from both paying participants and also from those who have an All-Inclusive membership, when the membership cap is reached, only paying participants can register after that point (while spaces are still available). If you have questions about whether this program is right for you, please contact us.

The Academic Impressions Virtual Workshop Experience

There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to exploring responsive issues in higher education. Our virtual workshops provide you with an active learning environment and an online space where you can explore ideas, get inspired by what your peers are doing, and understand the range of possibilities around a certain topic. Depending on what you need to solve a specific challenge at your institution, you will have the chance to gain ideas, plans, refinements, or connections with those undergoing the same challenges as you. You will leave these sessions with practical solutions that you can take back to your team or task force.

What you will get:

  • Learn from what your peers are doing across the nation
  • Gather unique and creative approaches that you may not have thought about
  • Validate and vet plans and priorities
  • Contribute your ideas and help shape the conversation
  • Get work done in a space that’s designed to help you reflect, be creative, and maintain focus on the issue
  • Connect with subject matter experts who steer the conversation and add value
  • Experience expert facilitation to ensure practical outcomes and takeaways

As the coronavirus pandemic unfolds nationally, it is so important to keep connecting and networking with your peers - at a “social distance” - and to keep learning and developing as higher-ed leaders and professionals. Don’t let social distancing and quarantines prevent you from setting aside time for professional development. Everything is changing so fast; more than ever, we need to be pooling our resources and knowledge and finding the best ways to develop our capacity, connect and share with each other, and move forward during a challenging time.
