Hilton Garden Inn
The Virginia Association of Management, Analysis and Planning is accepting proposals from presenters for innovative, timely, and dynamic educational sessions to be presented at the VAMAP Fall Conference, September 25, 2015 in Lynchburg, VA. The theme of the VAMAP conference is Education, Innovation, and Collaboration.
Review of previous conference evaluations, informal feedback gathered from attendees, and the most recent emerging issues indicate that Institutional Researchers professionals seek high-level knowledge in these areas:
- Professional Development and Training- In addition to critical areas in human resources like skillfully recruiting, managing, training, and motivating staff, we’re seeking programs that address developing the unique IR/IE knowledge base that often only comes from “on-the-job” training
- Emerging Issues, Tools, Technology: Think of emerging issues, and in some cases urgent issues, and how Institutional Research can rapidly and appropriately address these challenges. Best practices in like-minded organizations, examples from your own programs, and programs you’ve adapted may be suitable. Innovative tools and resources that improve efficiencies are also sought including advances in technology
- Innovative Research, Programs, Activities: We are seeking research that showcases institutional research.
Submissions are due by August 15, 2015Submit your proposals by clicking here.
