We will all be hearing a great deal about \u201cPathways\u201d here very shortly, if you haven\u201ft already.
The best part about this accreditation process is that it\u201fs not an acronym (AQIP or PEAQ)! It is

quite an honor that the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) has invited YC to be part of the pilot
Pathways project. Come learn what is involved in this very innovative model for continuing our
accreditation. The new model is more meaningful and less cumbersome than in self-studies past.

We will be discussing timelines, the steering committee, and the \u201cAssurance\u201d & Quality Initiatives.

Field Trips and Online Courses
1:00 PM\u2013 2:00 PM

While the internet has changed greatly in the past several years, online education courses still
deliver most of the content via a computer screen or textbook. Those are not the only options and
certainly not the best practice. This session will explore the options and the need for using
resources beyond the computer in online and hybrid courses. Be prepared to share ideas you
already have integrated into your class or some ideas you brainstorm with the group.

and a whole bunch of wild things you have probably never heard of! We will have actual
