Ferris State Well Represented at NADE Meetings

April 17, 2003

Sponsored by a Timme Team Travel Grant from the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Faculty Development and additional support from the office of Retention and Student Success, seven Ferris faculty attended the National Association for Developmental Education national conference at Austin, Texas, in February.

The team members from Retention and Student Success included Julie Bonkowski, Judith Hooper, Gloria Lukusa, Neil Michaels and Helen Woodman.  Two faculty members from the College of Arts and Sciences, Richard Griffin and Brenda Vasicek, also were on the team. In addition, Structured Learning Assistance Coordinator John Kowalczyk and SLA facilitator Diane Griffin attended the conference.

Bonkowski, Hooper, Lukusa, Micheals, Woodman, Griffin and Griffin made professional presentations.  All of the attendees returned to Ferris with ideas they could implement in their classes and share with their colleagues.
