We have assembled a group of keynote speakers of varied background and interests for 2016’s, “Academic Quality: Driving Assessment and Accreditation”. Each of them brings to Drexel’s September meeting their set of unique experiences and expertise which will no doubt enhance the breadth and depth of our conference discussions and reflections.
Collectively, they bring to the table a myriad of corporate and academic experiences, numerous books and publications, patents awarded, and a wealth of speaking engagements before assorted constituencies. We will be treated to perspectives on the revolution in higher education, on reclaiming academic quality in the context of assessment and accreditation, understanding complex problems from multiple viewpoints, and of course, the opportunity to question their positions and forecasts.
Join us at Drexel in September. Autumn is beautiful in Philadelphia.
