Herb Ramy, Chair of the Academic Support Section for AALS, has recently sent out a listserv announcement regarding the dates for our section events in New Orleans this coming January. In case you missed his e-mail, here are the dates that you need to note on your calendars:
Saturday, January 5, 7:00 – 8:30 AM – Separate Fee Required ($35)
Section on Academic Support Breakfast
Sunday, January 6, 4:00–5:45 p.m.
Section on Academic Support
Topic: Assessing Our Students, Our Success and Ourselves - Three presentations will highlight different aspects of assessment to inform participants about sources of existing data, methods of gathering additional information, and uses of that information to assess existing programs and to develop new ones.
Sunday, January 6, 7:00 – 7:30 p.m.
Section Business Meeting – If others are interested, we can try to gather for dinner after the business meeting. In this way, folks who cannot make the breakfast can have another opportunity to meet with old friends and make new ones.
We look forward to seeing all of you in New Orleans. The Section events are always worthwhile as is the networking before and after. (Amy Jarmon)
