Adapting Best Practices: How to Bring New Programs and Ideas to Your Institutions

Key West - AB

1:30 PM - 2:45 PM

Conferences are important opportunities to share strategies that support student success in high impact experiences. And we often talk about ‘stealing’ great ideas when attending a conference but rarely discuss how the implementation works once back on our home campus.

This interactive keynote will share three vignettes that highlight how new programs and structures were inspired by national models and best practices in undergraduate research. Each vignette will share the strategy implemented for adapting, the partnerships and resources needed, what was learned, and tips based on their experience.

Program participants will be divided into groups to workshop ideas on how to be successful at adapting best practices.
