Recent Retirees as Resources to Faculty, Staff, Students:
Open Mic, Virtual Brown Bag Discussion
Preparation for TLT Group's 1st Winter Symposium, Feb 2012

Dec. 16, 2011 at 1:00 pm ET - free to all. 

The number and qualifications of recent and projected retirees offer new challenges and new opportunities for higher education (and for the rest of society).  This rapidly growing cohort can both complicate the next crises and provide new resources for addressing them.   Retirees can be
  • a vital resource to faculty, staff, and students at institutions – as mentors, advisors, consultants, shepherds.
  • a growing population of nontraditional students with new needs and diverse backgrounds.

For the foreseeable future, colleges and universities must expect to achieve no more than brief interludes of peaceful stability as they strive to balance the forces of accelerating unpredictable changes in resources, constituencies, and expectations. Including but not limited to:  information technology, financial resources, educational needs, public trust, the nature of scholarship, and competing views of the appropriate missions of individual institutions and higher education in general.

****  We're starting this discussion at 1:00 pm Eastern in the same room as our regularly scheduled FridayLive! at 2:00pm Eastern "Understanding and Working with Student Resistance to Active Learning". Please feel free to stay for FridayLive! if you'd like! *****

NOTE:  Login instructions for the session will be sent in the Registration Confirmation Email. Please check your Junk folder as sometimes these emails get trapped there. We will also send an additional login reminder 24 hours prior to the start of the event.
