InfoReady Introduces its Interactive Course Catalog Technology at The Great Lakes Regional Student Success Conference taking place at Oakland University on February 27th and 28th.
The Great Lakes Regional Student Success Conference (GLRSSC) is an opportunity for faculty, staff, and students to learn together as they share best practices for helping all students be successful. This year’s theme, Asset-minded Practice: Reframing Student Success, will encourage attendees to focus on student strengths, while also challenging each other to identify ways their institutions currently inhibit growth in a variety of student populations.
Attendees will navigate conference sessions and resources via the Engagement Hub, powered by InfoReady Scale™. This centralized resource allows attendees to search and filter by presenter, session, or keyword to find the sessions most relevant to them.
As a proud sponsor of GLRSSC, representatives from InfoReady will attend and present at the conference, showcasing how the Engagement Hub has helped institutions promote and facilitate their campuswide opportunities and resources. Our very own Maurice Collins, InfoReady COO, will host a session focused on his work with Eastern Michigan University to create a more engaging experience for course catalogs-- an interactive one powered by InfoReady Engagement Hub. He will discuss how this course catalog was rolled out, how we sought student feedback, how we engaged faculty and then launched this innovative approach to an old problem.
An institution’s list of general education (“Gen Ed”) courses can be a bit of a struggle to search through for students. Course catalogs are cumbersome and, frankly, dry. By providing a more familiar and robust approach, an institution can improve the experience for students to discover Gen Ed courses that not only keep them on track academically, but also match their interests. For those interested in learning more, the course catalog presentation is scheduled for Concurrent Session 1 of the conference.
We hope to see you at GLRSSC!
