Innovator Spotlight Features a Wide Range of Sessions
Innovator Spotlight 2012 provides community college professionals a chance to collaborate, interact, and connect with recent winners of the League’s Innovation of the Year Award, and offers ideas for building and sustaining their own innovative community college programs.
Each year the League honors outstanding innovations through the presentation of the Innovation of the Year Award. These innovations represent significant achievements at member colleges and the continuing renewal of the spirit of innovation and experimentation upon which the League was founded. Innovator Spotlight features these innovators and their award-winning innovations.
The second annual, one-day virtual Innovator Spotlight takes place on Wednesday, February 15, 2012, from 1:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. EST. In addition to sessions by Innovation of the Year award winners, Innovator Spotlight 2012 features a plenary session with a keynote by U.S. Under Secretary of Education Martha Kanter; virtual roundtable sessions; multimedia poster sessions; a virtual League Corporate Partner Exhibit Hall; opportunities to network with colleagues from around the world; and participant access to taped sessions for six months.
Sessions feature presentations from award winners a wide variety of topics. For example, Innovator Spotlight registrants can find out what Century College, Loraine Valley Community College, and Miami Dade College are doing to support the success of their new and at-risk students; check out a student-run, annual event at Henry Ford Community College that engages students in political and social discourse; discover how York Technical College is improving advising; learn about San Diego Community College’s minority male outreach program; uncover how Sinclair Community College is reinforcing the competencies of adjunct faculty; and examine how developmental math coursework has been restructured at El Paso Community College. These are just a few examples of the many learning and sharing opportunities available at Innovator Spotlight.
Innovator Spotlight 2012 registration is $75 for individuals, potentially making this the most cost-effective professional development experience available. Group rates and college rates are also available for one registration fee. For more information and to register, visit: http://www.league.org/innovatorspotlight/
