2011 DETC Fall Workshop
October 16-18, 2011
The Loews Vanderbilt Hotel * Nashville, TN
More than 120 people gathered at the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee October 16-18 to attend the 2011 DETC Fall Workshop.
The workshop featured a dozen richly informative sessions, including a primer on using technology to assist in compliance, a presentation on student engagement strategies to improve retention, a discussion on the state of state authorization, and a session devoted to the assessment of student learning.
The Fall Workshop featured the continuation of several new ways for attendees to connect with DETC, session presenters, and with each other.
The Workshop website included an interactive map with directions to the hotel, an online copy of the Program, and contained information for speakers, attendees, and exhibitors.
During the meeting, the online Program featured biographical information for presenters, downloadable presentations and session handouts, and online session evaluations. Attendees could even get a sneak peek at the menus for lunch and dinner!
The Fall Workshop also was the two-year anniversary of the highly-reviewed Meeting Mentoring program that debuted during the 2009 Fall Workshop.
The program, designed to help make new attendees feel more at ease, paired experienced DETC meeting goers with first-time meeting attendees. The program gave first-time meeting attendees the opportunity to meet and learn from an experienced DETC member, and have a friendly contact to talk to and ask questions of throughout the meeting. Mentors gained the opportunity of meeting new colleagues and sharing their expertise.
The learning doesn’t stop just because the meeting is over. Interested in reviewing a presentation, or getting a copy of some handouts? Both are available online, by visiting the Workshop Program page of the meeting Web site. Looking to connect with other attendees? A final version of the Registration List will be available soon! And don't forget to take a look at the photos from the 2011 DETC Fall Workshop!
