Curricular Analytics:  Visualizing and Analyzing Programs              9:15-10:15 am

Colleges have mapped their curriculum and developed clearer pathways for students through Guided Pathways and other initiatives.  Curricular Analytics is a free tool to help colleges continue to analyze their curriculum by visualizing how courses are connected through prerequisites and explore the complexity of programs.  The session will feature the Curricular Analytics developer and will feature Western Michigan University who has used the tool to explore their curriculum.  Register for this session here.

Faculty and college personnel are increasingly interested in developing competencies to serve student veterans.  This session will feature an overview of Kognito’s Veterans on Campus interactive online training module geared toward improving military cultural competencies across campus as well as an opportunity for participants to complete the 25-30 minute training.  The Consortium of Michigan Veterans Educators is hosting a challenge grant and college personnel who complete the training module will help their campus earn a $500 challenge grant.  Register for this session here


A Complete Toolkit to Conduct Focus Groups                                12:00-1:00 pm

Colleges are rapidly implementing new student success practices to improve completion and transfer.  But how do students feel about these changes?  Join us for a session featuring the Center for Community College Student Engagement (CCCSE) as they discuss their Focus Group Toolkit which includes a comprehensive guide to conducting focus group and specific guides with questions targeted at full-time and part-time students, entering and returning students, and faculty and student services staff.  Colleges can use this toolkit to quickly conduct focus groups on campus.  Register for this session here
