Featured Session include a facilitated discussion of the challenges for first-year students and those serving them across international contexts and interactive presentations on serving first-year international students, engaging peer educators, and developing and sustaining a first-year experience network on your campus. Presenters will include U.S. and international educators, and all conference attendees are invited to participate.
Featured SessionAn Evening with John Gardner: Reflections on the First-Year Experience Movement
Come spend part of your first evening with the conference founder, John Gardner. This event is designed to help him get to know conference delegates personally, to help delegates make sense of the first-year experience movement, and to facilitate networking. John also provides the opportunity for discourse, reflection, information, and inspiration, to the entire conference. He will present an interactive portrait of the first-year experience movement—its history and accomplishments, observations on its present, and some predictions about its future. Conference attendees are invited to drop in when they want, leave when they want, relax, and make themselves comfortable.
