Finals shuttle schedule
Peggy Smith from Smith and Associates will present the morning keynote on cross-generational communication. Team-building exercises will demonstrate the value of the individual for the achievement of common goals.
Participants who recently migrated to UD's Google Mail will find the lunchtime walk-through especially valuable. There will be an opportunity to have questions answered by an IT expert and get an introduction to the most popular Google Apps for Education.
A focus on assessment will conclude the day with a showcase of group reflection and tangible outcomes based on the exercises presented.
