TESOL 2016 Pre-Conference Institute, "Effective Planning for Managing Change in Postsecondary English Language Programs"
Although systematic planning is critical for effective program management, it is oftentimes neglected and, therefore, change occurs under duress or in an ad hoc manner. After a discussion of theoretical models of planning, participants examine authentic plans for program development, including review of curriculum, assessment, and student services, and receive assistance in developing plans.
