Day 1, the first ever Credo Education User Summit, is an event designed for sharing best practices, working through common challenges, and communicating directly with the Credo product team about how to use the Courseware on campus. Credo looks forward to hearing subscriber feedback on the product roadmap and features, as well as thoughts on building a learning community around the Courseware.
On Day 2, presenters and attendees will delve further into learning communities to explore how building a network of people who share common academic goals and attitudes can positively affect the library, staff, faculty and students. Both existing and potential Courseware customers will explore how Credo and peer institutions are working with the Courseware to impact student learning, improve outcomes, strengthen ties with faculty and more.
