About AIR 2017
Association For Institutional Research (AIR 2017 )will bw held in Washington Marriott Marquis, District of Columbia, USA on 30 May to 2 June 2017.
The Association’s annual conference, the AIR Forum, is the world’s largest gathering of higher-education professionals working in institutional research, assessment, planning and related postsecondary education fields. This four-day conference includes more than 450 presentations by colleagues representing all sectors of higher education and an exhibit hall featuring the latest tools and resources to support data use for decision making. Available exclusively to AIR members, the Forum presents a unique opportunity for networking with peers, sharing best practices and learning from practical workshops and plenary sessions led by the field’s leading experts. The Forum is the “must attend” event for both seasoned and early-career professionals.
AIR members have access to program books and presentation materials from Past Forums. This extensive list is a significant resource for members seeking information on the wide variety of subjects presented at previous conferences.
Beginning with the 1961 Forum in Chicago, Ill., this event has been hosted in major cities across North America. Even though the annual conference theme has changed with the years, the Forum has maintained its timeliness, relevance, and prestige for more than five decades.
AIR invites experienced higher education professionals in the areas of institutional research, assessment, and effectiveness to submit proposals to lead pre -conference workshops at the 2017 AIR Forum in Washington, DC. Workshops are interactive half-day (3.5 hour) and full-day (7 hour) sessions offered on Monday, May 29 and Tuesday, May 30 (Seating is limited and attendees pay an additional fee to attend.)
Workshops are designed to engage participants in learning about practical tools and techniques, research, or statistics. The ideal workshop includes a mixture of lecture-style teaching, along with individual/group exercises, demonstrations, and discussions. Participants should leave the workshop with a deeper understanding of the topic, a new network of colleagues, and resources (lists of helpful websites, references, AIR Forum sessions, etc.) for continuing their education. The typical workshop includes 40 or more participants and one or two instructors. View the suite of 2016 workshops.
