Last Friday, I was honored to have been asked to take part in “Making it Happen: Partnering Academics and Student Services.” I had a wonderful time presenting and sharing ideas on Engaging Students in the Classroom and Beyond.
For those of you who joined us Friday, you know that you received the video prE-mail below with a link to an introduction survey. I am happy to report again that Miami Dade faculty posted a 84% response rate to my survey request. This is the highest response rate to a survey I have ever seen, and I have given quite a few surveys. There is either something special in the water down in Miami, or perhaps the faculty are super motivated to learn strategies for engaging students. Either way I was impressed and it was a real honor to work with that team. Thanks again to all who participated. Below you will find links to some of the content I shared in the session.
