Professional Development Opportunities

Annual Faculty and Staff Learning Symposium

“Partnering for the Future” is the theme of the Drake University, 2014 2nd Annual Learning Symposium. We know that collaborations strengthen our institution, connect colleagues across disciplines, and foster the accumulation of knowledge while affecting practice.  

2014 Learning Symposium Call for Proposals - This year’s symposium begins from the premise that education is a multi-faceted enterprise that works best when we partner with others. It seeks proposals that will invite collaboration and engagement to promote bold and innovative concepts that will enhance the learning experiences of Drake students, faculty, and staff.
