Innovations 2007 promises to be just as exciting and boldly inventive as ever. So be sure to celebrate 10 years of innovation with us in New Orleans. Join the most innovative community college professionals as they come together to improve student and organizational learning through innovation, experimentation, and institutional transformation.

Be a part of Innovations 2007 March 4-7 at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside in New Orleans. The 2007 conference is hosted by Louisiana Community and Technical College System.

The Hilton New Orleans Riverside is in the “center of it all”. Located on the banks of the Mississippi River with easy access to everything New Orleans has to offer. This full service luxury complex is actually a ''city within itself.'' Whether visiting for business or pleasure shopping/entertainment options are steps away. The Riverwalk Marketplace (140+ shops and food outlets) is at the hotel's doorstep, as are Harrah's Casino, the Aquarium of the Americas, the IMAX Theatre, the French Quarter, the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, The National D-Day Museum, the Arts District, the Louisiana Children's Museum, and the Riverfront Streetcar.

Innovations 2007 is an opportunity for colleagues around the world to showcase their model programs, to share lessons learned, and to look to the future by experiencing a wide array of learning opportunities. Join the most energetic community college professionals as they work together to improve student and organizational learning by exploring innovations in (1) Learning and Teaching, (2) Leadership and Organization, (3) Workforce Preparation and Development, (4) Student Services and Activities, (5) Basic Skills and Developmental Education, (6) Resource Development and Foundation Management, and (7) Research, Assessment, and Accountability.
