We presented at the 2016 Student Success and Retention Conference on Thursday February 4th. The presentation itself went over very well. It was standing room only and the audience was very engaged. Giving a presentation with four different individuals participating is a challenge in terms of pacing and content flow, but everyone did an outstanding job and the overall rhythm of the talk was right on.

The title of our talk:

“Invigorating a sense of student ownership of their learning through self-development of an Individualized Strategic Plan for Academic Success”

The presentation is the story of our experience using principles of design thinking to create a student experience that connects students with the campus community and resources, invigorating a sense of ownership of learning and commitment to academic success, with great intent, by creating their own Strategic Plan for Academic Success.

In a project that has been on-going for more than a year, the use of fundamental principles of design thinking has been critical to moving forward. More on that in a subsequent post.
