2012 Connections Conference
The Florida Department of Education's Division of Florida Colleges is excited to announce the 7th annual Connections Conference on Thursday, April 12 and Friday, April 13, 2012, at Santa Fe College in Gainesville, Florida. The Connections Conference is an important forum for Florida policy-makers, educators, and administrators to gather and exchange ideas about programs and services which address academic preparedness, learning strategies, diagnostic assessment and placement, and overcoming barriers to learning.
This year's conference, titled "Solving the Student Success Puzzle - One Student at a Time," intends to highlight Florida's potential to narrow the readiness gap and tackle the complex issues of postsecondary readiness. Florida has been working on an ambitious and strategic college readiness agenda for many years. The state is at the forefront of many nationwide education reform efforts and involved in a number of projects that aim to reduce the need for remediation when students reach college.
The 2012 Connections Conference will strive to provide meaningful coverage on current trends in bridging the gap between K-12 and postsecondary educators. This year's Connection Conference is unique in that it emphasizes our commitment to working with the K-12 sector. Each college will invite members from the school districts they serve to the conference to be a part of conversations regarding student preparedness, college-readiness assessments and Common Core State Standards.
We hope that you will join us this year!
The online conference registration has been extended to April 2, 2012!
We look forward to seeing you in Gainesville in April.
