DARS/u.select Users Conference Concludes
Ninety participants attended this year’s conference held at the Cragun’s Resort in Brainerd on October 8 – 9, 2013.
This year’s sessions included: DARwin vs u.achieve, Pre-Conversion Information, our infamous “Tips & Tricks”, an introduction to Transferology, Optimizing Transfer in Transferology, VETS Update, Credit When It’s Due: Reverse Transfer Update, MNTC Historical Review Project, and DARS & Transfer Related Campus Clean-up Projects.
Participants also split off into Breakout sessions on Condition Codes, Exceptions, AgileGrad and Transfer Issues Related to DARS. Many shared during our Town Hall open discussion and casual networking time, as well.
Conference evaluations reinforce that our users value the information and the opportunity to gather as a group and hear about/discuss topics related to the work we do and how we can better serve our students.
