Strengthening Student Success Conference 2024

October 10 @ 7:30 am - 4:30 pm PDT

Teaching and Learning at a Crossroads: Where Do We Go From Here?
The higher education landscape has shifted in the last few years. Online classes, AI, basic skills reform, meeting students’ basic needs, free speech, decreased enrollment, transforming equity and many other changes have brought us to a crossroads for teaching and learning. The question is, what happens when we come to a crossroads and we don’t have directions? What do we feel? Panic, curiosity, fear, a sense of adventure? Maybe all of these emotions at once? How do we choose the right path?

This year’s conference theme encourages us to be open to new directions and opportunities. It reminds us of long-standing inequities in students’ outcomes and inspires us to chart new paths to create necessary changes to meet our students’ needs. Our theme invites us to begin a new journey that includes students as partners to close opportunity gaps for everyone. We have a new generation of students, and, like all new generations, they see the world differently. Our teaching must be worthy of this generation of students’ time and energy to learn. Our responsibility lies in helping them see value in taking the journey through higher education for their own lives and the lives of their families. However, it is not just our students whom we have to bring along on the journey—we must also help our diverse community to see that higher education is a public good and valuable for everyone.

The new landscape for teaching and learning provides for rigor and accountability with a strong dose of love, compassion, and grace as survival tools to meet the challenges along the way. Internal, external, and cultural forces will shape the journey in both positive and negative ways. We may sometimes face obstacles and bumps in the road, but we will weather the storm and return to the journey with greater resolve to transform equity for ourselves and our students. Let’s begin a new journey with a love for our students and extend compassion as we walk alongside them.
