College of Western Idaho (CWI) faculty are invited to attend a day of professional development at the Hampton Inn near the intersection of Franklin and Garrity boulevards in Nampa on Friday (Nov. 4). The day will feature a key note address from Dr. David Laude, Senior Vice Provost for Enrollment and Graduation Management and former chemistry professor from the University of Texas, Austin. Dr. Laude will speak on the topic, “Everyone Can Get an A.”
Dr. Laude's work has included the creation of undergraduate programs to support student success. He was instrumental in the development of the UTeach program, the Texas Interdisciplinary Plan, and the Freshman Research Initiative. CWI’s IDoTeach is modeled after the UTeach program. Following the key note address there will be a question and answer session with Dr. Laude.
Lunch will be provided. Afternoon sessions will focus on Dual Credit at CWI and the College’s retention and graduation efforts. Both of these topics will be covered in the key note address and should provide for thoughtful consideration of CWI’s programs.
Space is limited and attendees are required to RSVP in advance. To register, visit www.getana.eventbrite.com.
