1. Innovation in Education vs. Traditional Methods of Instruction

The landscape of education and the importance of continuing educationare rapidly being transformed by innovations in teaching and learning technology. Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), reconfigured classrooms, and blended/hybrid learning models are changing education, student expectations and demands, and the overall learning experience. But how successful are these new methods of teaching? Recent research found only about 10 percent of those enrolled in online instruction actually complete their courses and earn certificates or degrees.We will hear presentations on your experiences and research including more traditional methods of teaching that are successful and the need to continue to instill core values and ethics as well as the importance of face-to-face communication.

Some possible topics/issues to be addressed include but are not limited to:
  • New educational models and measurement of learning outcomes
  • Developments in online learning and what it means for the education and the work place

2. International Student Recruitment; International Partnerships, Exchange and Support

Increasingly there is more interest by Western universities to recruit high school and higher education students, specifically from China and the Asian-Pacific region, but also from other countries around the world. Part of this interestlies in diversifying schools in an effort to create an “international experience” for the host institution. Other reasons, especially in higher education, involve the need to increase student enrollment for monetary purposes. A third purpose being investigated and undertaken by some top American universities is to try to find the financial means to require students in a major to complete part of their coursework internationally.

Some possible topics/issues to be addressed include but are not limited to:
  • Strategies for marketing and recruiting international students
