We are pleased to announce the session list for Parchment Connect National 2018! Our sixth annual user conference will be March 24-25 in Orlando, Florida and immediately precedes the AACRAO Annual Meeting. This year’s agenda is our most comprehensive and innovative yet.
The conference will feature four unique session tracks including Parchment Send for Higher Education, Parchment Receive and Parchment Send for K-12. The fourth session track, Parchment Summit, is a continuation of the thought leadership dialogue stemming from the Parchment Summit on Innovating Academic Credentials events and webinars that began in 2016.
Join us Saturday morning for pre-conference sessions including a FERPA Overview with AACRAO Senior Fellow, LeRoy Rooker and in-depth product training workshops. In the regular conference program, attendees can choose from more than 18 different educational breakout sessions on a wide array of topics.
In the Parchment Summit track, hear from those on the leading edge of credential innovation, including Lumina Foundation Comprehensive Student Record grantees, employers who look to credentials to improve their recruiting and process, and students who will provide their perspective on lifelong learning and the impact of credentials on their lives.
The Parchment Send for Higher Education track features a panel discussion with Registrars who have recently implemented digital diplomas with Parchment Award, a case study from Temple University on automating with the Banner API, and insight into how Registrars Offices leverage data to impact student success.
Parchment Receivers will hear one institution’s experience with connecting Receive Premium to their e-Application and CRM, learn strategies to gain insight into the Admissions process from reporting available in Parchment Receive, and explore how the Parchment Unified Inbox streamlines the process of collecting and working with incoming documents.
In the Parchment Send for K-12 track, learn best practices for streamlining the student registration experience, explore how partnering with other institutions serves students by moving beyond the one-size-fits-all model, and hear about the exciting new tools Parchment is working with states and institutions to automate the transmission of transcripts.
Whether you’re a daily user of Parchment services or not, join us in Orlando this March for a program packed with sessions to get you up to speed on the latest and greatest in the ever-evolving world of credential exchange.
