About the Conference: The Hispanic Educational Technology Services Consortium (HETS) would like to highlight and celebrate the outstanding work of its member institutions in meaningfully and strategically using technology to achieve Hispanic student success. Taking place on January 16 and 17, 2020, the 2020 HETS Best Practices Showcase will focus on three primary tracks: Access, Retention and Online Learning and Technology Integration in Higher Education.
HETS has defined a “best practice” as an innovative approach or strategy that, with the effective use of technology, has proven to increase recruitment, promote student success, improve student retention and completion, and provide institutions with viable, effective, and efficient approaches for Online Learning and Technology Integration in Higher Education. Overall, the event will showcase innovative technology strategies in Higher Education focused on impacting the Hispanic student population in the areas of retention, completion, and successful learning outcomes.
Certainly, HETS member institutions are experts in supporting a Hispanic student population and finding ways to provide them with opportunities to succeed. The event aims to provide a space for member institutions to share this expertise. Once again, participants will be not only able to learn from the showcased works, but also find solutions to many common issues and even establish new possibilities for collaboration with other institutions and potential partners.
