Student Success Technology Working Sessions

Building on December 2017’s Student Success Technology Workshop and Spring 2018 Technology Working Groups, this fall we’ll be hosting thematic remote working sessions to continue the conversation about the role of student success technology in advancing student outcomes. We’ll be structuring the fall working sessions around specific themes raised by you and your peers. Sarah Zauner, Executive Director of The Ada Center, will facilitate these sessions, however, the sessions will rely on participant engagement to drive the conversation. The sessions are open to multiple individuals from Frontier Set sites and sites can register for multiple sessions.
