As continuing and professional education administrators, we know that higher education is an evolving web of delivery systems, methodologies, pedagogies, and innovations. Meeting the needs of the diverse populations we serve means regularly challenging the traditional ways of academia. These challenges to convention take many forms and are often accompanied by risks to reputation, revenue, and relationships. However, institutions that can successfully innovate will reap the rewards, not only for themselves but for their students who will enjoy greater student services, cutting edge technology, inventive pedagogy, and innovative new programming.
This year’s conference focuses on the ways in which member organizations challenge convention as well as the potential perils and benefits of taking risks. Join us for an eye-opening look at risks and rewards that provides you with a foundation for challenging convention at your own institution, as well as best practices from around the New England region!This year’s conference takes place at the beautiful Cliff House Resort & Spa on the ocean in Ogunquit, ME. Close to both Kittery and Freeport, Ogunquit is one of Maine’s most visited towns. Known as a haven for visual and performance artists, Ogunquit’s cultural scene is complemented by boutique-lined streets and cozy restaurants.
