PASSHE_LOGOCalU Faculty and Staff,


The 5th annual “Transforming the Teaching & Learning Environment: the PASSHE Virtual Conference” will take place between February 10th and 21st.  There will again be 60 one-hour sessions on a variety of topics delivered right to your computer or tablet.  The sessions are all live and interactive.  But if you can’t make it to a session, they will all be recorded, as well.  Best of all, the conference remains FREE to all PASSHE faculty and staff.



The conference committee started by identifying sessions from 20 different conferences from the past year—see list below.  It selects what it believes to best fit the theme of the conference.  This year, that initial pool of sessions totaled over 300.  After two rounds of ranking the sessions, the pool has been narrowed down to 152.  The third and final round is an opportunity for PASSHE faculty and staff to provide their input in the selection of the best sessions for the conference.  Simply click on the link below to rate the remaining sessions.  It will take about 15 to 20 minutes to complete.


****Please complete the survey by October 21st.****
