First Year in Focus - Maximizing Student Retention - Everyones Responsibility

McGraw-Hill Ryerson is coming to Newfoundland and Labrador on May 8, 9 and 10, 2011 to partner with Memorial University and the College of the North Atlantic for their 38th National Teaching and Learning Conference. Additionally, this is the third Canadian First Year Experience conference.

The main theme of this conference will be “student retention”.

Once our students have chosen your institution for their education, what factors influence their success? What roles do learning and social environments and support mechanisms play? This conference will examine current insights around factors that influence the success of first year students, as well as best practices, and lessons learned.
