Kepler, SNHU & UNHCR Convene to Review Progress & Plan for 2018
Key members from Kepler, Southern New Hampshire University & UNHCR convened this week to review HEA progress over 2017, as well as to gear up for 2018's activities. Kepler's newest team members--Dan Gwinell, CEO and Teppo Jouttenus, VP of Academic Affairs were able to join the activities becoming active, key members in the HEA process.
The team visited Kiziba refugee camp campus to conduct focus group discussions with students, observe classes, and discuss course facilitator (Kepler's title for teachers/professors) Action Research projects. UNHCR collected data to offer valuable feedback to Kepler and SNHU based upon student perspectives on engaging in HEA. The feedback will help the program build upon strengths and explore key areas for growth and improvement as SNHU and Kepler plan for scaling the program.
The teams will spend the week together reviewing 2017 activities, planning for 2018, and gearing up to launch key components of the scaling research process with American Institutes of Research.
