Session Type: Professional Development

In previous sessions, we have detailed work and outcomes from a study funded by the National Science Foundation where student search geographies were explored and learner personas were developed. The researchers view this work as interesting and important, but have struggled with how to make this relevant and actionable for specific groups within higher education. In this session, we will discuss the research findings and work with participants to uncover come of the relevant applications of this information.

OUTCOMES: Understand some cutting-edge research on learners * Learn a few tricks and tips from this large project * Help refine this information to make it more useable for practitioners
