Holmes Preconference: Professional and Personal Learning, Networking, and Mentoring at #AACTE19
Please join us at the Holmes Community preconference at #AACTE19! All Cadets, Honors, Masters, and Scholars are highly encouraged to attend the session on February 21. Sessions at this year’s preconference emphasize building a research agenda and networking with your colleagues and mentors across the country.
Holmes students are distinctly advantaged as this preconference spans two days! The Holmes Student Council, members of the National Association of Holmes Scholars Alumni (NAHSA), and AACTE staff will facilitate the sessions, which emphasize the theme, Professional and Personal Learning, Networking, and Mentoring. Several sessions will focus on building and maintaining a rigorous research agenda. Holmes students will hear from alumni with unique pathways into education-related careers. In addition to presenting the annual Holmes Poster Session, NAHSA and AACTE are proud to support the Holmes Dissertation Funding Competition.
Program coordinators are especially encouraged to attend, as there will be a designated coordinators meeting on the morning of February 21 at 9:00 a.m. The program coordinators session will provide information on starting and maintaining a Holmes Scholar Program. Topics will include the introduction of a Holmes Scholar Welcome Packet, systems for communicating with AACTE about your program, expectations of participating institutions, selection of Scholars, and best practices for supporting Scholars.
