Now in its sixth year, the League’s Learning College Summit brings together community and technical college educators who are committed to a deliberate, powerful focus on learning at their institutions. In a small conference center hotel set in the verdant Corporate Woods of Overland Park, the 2008 Learning College Summit will serve as a working retreat for college teams or individuals to connect with colleagues, share experiences, discuss issues, and explore strategies for overcoming obstacles and meeting challenges. This gathering of educators is designed to foster networking and collaborative opportunities, and is a vehicle for investigating ways colleges have successfully undertaken significant organizational transformation to improve student learning.
