“This was the best day! Take aways included how to organize a meeting, how to respond to new colleagues (resisters, early adopters, etc.), and how to get your voice heard. Also, the conflict styles helped as did concrete strategies to deal with difficult people. I appreciate the underlying theme of principled decision-making. Today’s sessions were also well facilitated – with a mix of information, small group, and whole group discussion.”

When Thinking Wrong is Right: Purposeful Disruption of the Status Quo
Responding to the COVID-19 pandemic demanded great flexibility and required making in-the-moment decisions. Our work has become more intense and at times overwhelming, leaving us little time to dedicate to reflection, exploration, and innovation. As much as we ascribe to want to challenge the status quo and to take lessons learned from this past year of working, teaching, and learning remotely, we were unfortunately left exhausted and overwhelmed. As a result, we have been focused on getting back to normal or creating a new normal. This session is designed to disrupt your thinking and to help you to consider when thinking wrong is the right thing to do. Be prepared to flex your “thinking wrong” muscles in this engaging, reflective, and fun session. Attendees will participate in open discussion followed by small group interactive exercises to put into practice thinking wrong to do right.

Reimagining the Future: A New Vision for Academic Leaders
The post-COVID environment in higher education demands a new vision for academic leadership. A panel of innovators and thought leaders will energize your thinking about the future of higher education. During this session, they will address multiple themes, including 1) diversity, equity, and inclusion; 2) rethinking leadership; 3) re-envisioning student access and success; and 4) reimagining nature of the work. This session will stimulate and provoke discussions that take advantage of our collective discoveries to shape a new vision for academic leaders.
