Attended by over 400 participants, the AACRAO Technology and Transfer Conference offers distinct programming, but shares plenary sessions, a combined exhibitor space, and a joint reception. It’s one meeting with a focus on two very specific topics.
Discuss how technology tools are integrated into our operations and how they support the academic policies and objectives of our campuses. The sessions and workshops offered help develop the skills that higher education administrators require to maximize the effectiveness of service delivery to their core constituents.
With the increase in non-traditional routes for educational attainment, transfer has become a central focus in higher education. Participants will explore methods of facilitating transfer of academic credit and serving transfer students, as well as developing best practices that members can use as guidelines for handling transfer issues.
AACRAO’s registar workshops address the daily operations, issues, and challenges of the registar’s office, for both new and seasoned professionals. Registrar 101 & FERPA answers many of the “what” and “how” questions that make up the work of the registrar’s office. A significant portion of the workshop focuses on understanding and applying FERPA. Registrar 201 picks up where Registrar 101 leaves off, and explores leadership and management, budgeting, technology, FERPA beyond the basics, and the issues registrars may face in the near future.
