Breakthrough Model Designs from the Breakthrough Models Academy Competition

Thursday, October 17 | 12:30PM–2:30PM | Learning Theater Exhibit Hall C
Session Type: Professional Development
Come play a part in selecting a winning design for a breakthrough model in higher education, and take away ideas you can use in planning your own institution's transformation. Twelve teams, representing the participants in the inaugural 2013 Breakthrough Models Academy, will share the concepts they've developed and honed for new higher education institutions, degree programs, or comprehensive student success systems. Talk to team representatives about their designs, learn how the Breakthrough Models Academy works, and register your opinions. At the session's conclusion, a panel of secret judges will announce up to three teams as winners of scholarships and cash prizes.

Prior to the Learning Theater session review the 12 team projects': abstracts, websites and videos.
