“On The Frontline: Educator Preparation Impacting Workforce Development Through Expanded & Focused Partnerships” The Renaissance Group and TECSCU Fall 2018 Conference Outcomes! The Fall 2018 Conference, held October 6-9th in Charleston, South Carolina was a huge success. The conference attracted almost 100 educational leaders from all geographic regions of the United States. These attendees represented higher education institutions, PK-12 education, state and national education and legislative organizations, and professional organizations engaged in the preparation, support, evaluation, and continued development of high quality educators and programs.
As is our tradition, sessions were intentionally designed for engaging discussions, networking, and the exploration of mutual interests and challenges. This year continued our intentional mix of keynote speakers, panels, work sessions, and concurrent sessions along with social venues to maximize opportunities for attendees to engage in meaningful conversations, inspiring and informing presentations, and professional forums for focused connections. The feedback from participants was overwhelmingly positive.
We want to thank The Citadel for hosting this conference, The College of Charleston as an event host, and the Citadel’s Provost Office for their support. Watermark Insights continued the history of LiveText (now merged with others in Watermark) as a major sponsor and supporter of The Renaissance Group.
We are thankful for our TECSCU partners and colleagues who have helped to ensure the fall annual conferences are successful. As our organization responds to the current and future needs and requests from The Renaissance Group institutions, from this point forward we will be moving to a regional focus and will keep you posted about upcoming meetings as they are scheduled.
