Running Effective Meetings - Andrei Ribalkin

In this workshop we will explore: What makes a meeting effective and how to prepare and conduct effective meetings from the operational and management perspective. I will share my experience with meetings in the industry and as a BUSN department Chair at Douglas.

Rethinking Time Management:- John Harrison

Is there really such a thing as Time Management, or is Time just some uncontrollable beast that keeps on marching while we get left behind?

These days it seems like everyone has to do more with less resources. We have great plans that we’d like to get started (and eventually complete), but the day-to-day demands seem to keep those valuable projects on the corner of our desk. So how do we move forward, get the job done, manage the details and still have a life?

Join us for this fast-paced and interactive workshop that will:

 -          help you understand the neuroscience behind the effects of stress and decision-making

-          provide valuable tools and tips that you can immediately use to tame your mounting workload

-          introduce the concept of proactive productivity and how to incorporate it into your daily routine

High Impact Teaching Strategies - Glenn Galy 

Have you ever wondered what REALLY makes a difference when it comes to student learning? As instructors we work tirelessly to prepare lessons that help our students to learn. Perhaps there are a few things, however, that we can implement into our current practices that really improve the overall effectiveness of our teaching and, in doing so, improve student learning. If so, what are they? In this presentation, Dr. Glenn Galy will share some of the exciting empirical research that he has been reviewing over the past several years. He will identify a number of ‘must do’ classroom activities – based on longitudinal research, that deliver results in terms of improve student achievement. After the presentation, participants will take a few minutes to share practices that they have used that align with these ‘must do’ teaching practices.
