  • Initially funded for three years, one year, then three additional years
  • Other colleges involved, all 16 have attended workshops, this the leadership only
  • Tell them about upcoming workshop advertising and online registration
  • Designed for teachers, which is slightly different then the way you teach students.
  • Emerging trends team research, survey secondary and post-secondary faculty, and statewide and local advisory committees
  • After surveying for preferred topics, workshops were scheduled, but enrollment was not sufficent.
  • No-Shows are not a localized problem. This was a problem at New Horizons, where they are now charging colleges for no-shows. Normal workshop enrollment minimum is 10 participants. In some cases workshops were held as scheduled with low enrollment if the material was needed and/or some cases when the Instructor is providing instruction at no charge.
