PANEL 1 A is for Ambassador

“Student Ambassadors” supporting instructors and empowering learning: That’s the approach two classrooms are taking to bridge the gap between higher ed and the real world. Hear from two struggling students brought on track by tutoring and technology. The student (ambassadors), joined by their instructors, will discuss challenges and opportunities in using Cerego in Higher Ed and describe how learning technology improved their academic prospects, and how their struggles inform their role.

Mission Critical: Train Like The Army

The Army is one of the world’s largest training organizations. Army training imparts large amounts of information, instilling knowledge, culture, habits, and discipline -- knowledge and ability that is critical to their success. Every new posting or rank requires them to learn quickly and as a result, personnel develop the capacity to absorb information more efficiently than most. Learn how the army approaches learning and training to develop the smartest, strongest organization in the world.

Musical Map to Passion, Perserverance, & Practice

Gain insight into how you can achieve your creative potential in an event that’s a feast for the ears and mind. Talent and intelligence are not the only key factors in creative success. Effective practice over time, alongside passion, perseverance, and applied learning science are also key. Interspersing live solo guitar with the latest in learning science and performance psychology, Andrew Smith Lewis and Brian Gore will highlight parallels and contrasts between effective practice and learning.
