2017 Organizational Behavior Teaching Conference (OBTC)


Higher education is fighting a number of changing currents including, financial and competitive challenges; dramatic changes in college student demographics; increased accountability from the public, alumni, and accreditation agencies, and even changes in the perceptions of the purpose of higher education. This session will provide an overview of these changing currents followed by a collaborate dialogue using a World Café format to explore where these currents may take us, how these currents may change what we do as educators, and what we can do to prepare our institutions and ourselves to navigate these currents successfully.
