Spring Professional Development Activities

MSCHE has scheduled four professional development workshops for spring, all in Philadelphia.  

A Rising Tide Floats All Boats: Campus-Wide Student Success and Completion is scheduled for April 9, 2018, at the Courtyard by Marriott – Philadelphia Downtown. The workshop presenters will discuss critical issues in higher education that impact student success. Participants will learn how to create student-centered experiences by involving key campus stakeholders.  

Evidence to Prove Our Worth: Using Assessment Tools and Data – Linking Student Services to Institutional Mission and Goals is scheduled for April 13, 2018, at the Courtyard by Marriott -Philadelphia Downtown. This workshop will explore various assessment tools within student services and how to link assessment outcomes to mission, goals, planning processes, general education outcomes, and the resource allocation process.  

Using a Balanced Scorecard Approach to Strategic Planning is slated for April 23, 2018, at the DoubleTree by Hilton – Philadelphia Center City. The balanced scorecard is a model for strategic planning that helps align activities and initiatives to the vision and strategy of an institution, and helps improve communication of the plan to internal and external stakeholders. It provides a dashboard to monitor key performance indicators.  

Institutional Effectiveness: Bite-Sized and Jargon-Free (Mostly) will be offered May 4, 2018, at the Courtyard by Marriott – Philadelphia Downtown. The workshop will assist college and university faculty, staff, and administrators in understanding that their institutions already possess all of the elements required to design and implement an institutional effectiveness system. As an intermediate-level workshop, members of the audience should include faculty, staff, and administrators with responsibilities in the areas of planning, institutional effectiveness, and accreditation.
