USER SUMMIT: October 6, 2016 (for existing Courseware customers)

BUILDING LEARNING COMMUNITIES FORUM: October 7, 2016 (for existing and potential Courseware customers)

Raleigh, NC - The Brownstone Hotel

We are thrilled to invite you to the first ever Credo Education User Summit, an event designed for our partners to share best practices, work through common challenges, and communicate directly with the Credo product team about how you use the Courseware on your campus. We are looking forward to hearing your feedback on the product roadmap and features, and your thoughts on building a learning community around the Courseware.

On Day 2, we’ll delve further into learning communities and explore how building a network of people who share common academic goals and attitudes can strengthen your impact on the library, staff, faculty and students. Both existing and potential Courseware customers will explore how Credo and peer institutions are working with the Courseware to impact student learning, improve outcomes, strengthen ties with faculty and more.

Note: The Forum is included in the 2 day user summit for existing Courseware customers. Those interested in a future purchase of Courseware are invited to attend the Forum held on Day 2 (October 7).

User Summit
8:00 AMRegistration and Breakfast Dr. Alison J. Head, Project Information Literacy, "What Happens to Learning After College?"

What happens after college? What lifelong learning needs do recent college graduates have once they complete their undergraduate education and what information sources do they rely on? Findings are presented from two of Project Information Literacy's research studies on lifelong learning (2016) and the workplace (2012). Key takeaways are discussed about the information-seeking behavior of today's young graduates for staying competitive and employable in the workplace, engaged in civic and community life,and fulfilled and enriched in their personal lives. Results from testing a critical thinking index, a composite measure developed for purposes of the study, are presented. Implications are discussed for teaching, learning, and for preparing today's college students for their lives beyond the college classroom in the 21st century.

Forces of technology and exponential information in the new economy have changed how businesses react to the market, putting pressure on employees at all levels to proactively learn in real time and quickly adapt. Credo has engaged in primary research with business leaders to discover and codify the skills that workers need to be able to foresee change, pivot quickly, and innovate. Dr. Keltner will share the CEO's perspective on how these skills can transform the workplace and an employee's potential, as well as how these skills align with higher ed's mission to teach foundational skills of critical thinking, reasoning, information literacy, and communication.
