The Drexel Conference planning team is constantly seeking the most current and relevant speakers who pose thought-provoking questions and share their wisdom with attendees. Past speakers have included college/university and association presidents as well as legendary assessment individuals like Tom Angelo and Linda Suskie. The 2019 conference was no exception as Dr. Carol Hurney (Colby College) presented her system of learning outcomes for faculty professional development, and Dr. Stephen Hundley presented on leadership with the assessment of teaching and learning. The 7th annual conference speakers will live up to the lofty expectations that have been set by the first six years.
