Charting The Future Gallery Walk

On Tuesday, March 17, from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. in the lower level of the College Center (just outside the cafeteria and Student Life), Inver Hills will host the second round of Charting the Future Gallery Walks.

Wondering what a Gallery Walk is? It’s all part of Charting the Future, a strategic planning process that Inver Hills and all other Minnesota State Colleges and Universities are conducting. You can learn more about it here: Charting the Future website.

The spring Gallery Walks will provide us with the opportunity to review the initial concepts and ideas from four teams: Academic Planning & Collaboration, Competency Certification & Credit for Prior Learning, Education Technology and Information Technology Systems Design.

Student feedback is extremely important to this process because the ideas and concepts being considered are going to DIRECTLY impact students just like you. PLEASE plan to come through and provide feedback. Snacks will be available for all attendees.

Questions? Feel free to contact Erin Edlund at eedlund@inverhills.edu, or Charting the Future staff directly via myIdeas@so.mnscu.edu.

The Bookstore is seeking 5 students who would be willing to serve on a student panel from 10:15am-11:30am on October 14, 2014. Your audience are faculty from across the metro area.
Discussion topics include:

• What types of choices do you make regarding textbook costs (drop a class because the book is too expensive, don’t purchase a book because you can’t afford it, etc.)?
• What kinds of learning resource alternatives have you used in classes and why do you like/dislike it?
• How does the cost of textbooks effect your success?

If you are interested, please stop in to the Bookstore and talk to Dawn Master, Bookstore Manager or call her at 651-450-3247.
