The New Learn Forward, An Introduction

Last year, OrgSync launched the inaugural Learn Forward series on multiple facets of student engagement, followed by an assessment certification program which included webinars and eBooks focused on research, practical application, and best practices to give powerful knowledge and tools to enhance the valuable work of higher education professionals. Our presenters ranged from Vice Presidents to Coordinators, from new professionals to veteran scholar-practitioners. After a successful first year, we are excited to announce two additional enhancements to the Learn Forward offerings!

The Learn Forward Blog. The Learn Forward series will continue to offer webinars and eBooks revolving around relevant and opportune themes, but it will expand to include the Learn Forward blog, which will serve as an additional channel for higher education professionals to access valuable resources, information, and perspectives that impact their daily work. With powerful and timely posts, podcasts, and videos, the Learn Forward blog will showcase a wide variety of voices and perspectives in the field which will serve to influence and impact the higher education conversation. The blog will cover a variety of topics impacting and related to higher education including trends in higher education, timely topics, best practices, creative strategies, and career and professional development insights.

The Learn Forward Website. Given all of the resources now offered by Learn Forward, it only made sense for it to have its own website. You will no longer need to visit the OrgSync website to access all-things Learn Forward! All of the webinars, eBooks, blog posts, and certificate program information can now be accessed in one convenient spot. As you take a look around the site, you’ll also notice a fresh new design that we hope better reflects the timely and relevant content offered by some of the best thought leaders in the field through the Learn Forward program.

So, take a quick tour through the new site and let us know what you think! We are excited about the semester ahead and look forward to engaging and learning along with you through the many Learn Forward offerings and opportunities.
