Building the Future: From Best Practices to Next Practices in Career Services
Let's face it, finding time to create and implement new ideas is hard. Even when we want to develop new and exciting initiatives, the pace of our everyday work can make it hard to find the time to really examine and create! You're ready to move from "best practices" to "next practices," but need structure and time to explore. If this sounds familiar, then this pre-conference deep dive is for you.
Over the course of the workshop, we will warm up our creativity, take time to consider the needs of our stakeholders, generate ideas to help solve their problems, consult with peers to gather feedback and input, develop those ideas into solutions and share them with each other to inspire and motivate. Along the way, participants will be introduced to a variety of tools and techniques to help spur creativity and advancing the field.
