Keynote Speaker- Dave Caperton "Power of One"
What is the Power of One?Finding ways to solve big problems like employee disengagement and navigating rapid change is a little like being stuck in a traffic jam. It's easy to feel trapped and powerless. In the face of a problem like that, what can one person do? Actually, quite a lot. According to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal, one driver stuck in traffic can get everyone moving with the right attitude and one selfless action. That is The Power of One.

Each year we gather to honor and remember Mr. Bill Ruth. Bill will be remembered as a life-long Adult educator and advocate for adult education in Ohio.

Bill began his career in education and taught veterans returning from WWII under the G.I. and also taught marketing and sales at White Hall High School near Columbus where he brought numerous DECA teams to state and national competition. Bill's career concluded with his time serving as State Supervisor for Adult Education with the Ohio Department of Education.

He made extraordinary strides for adult education in Ohio by establishing programs statewide and recruiting a strong team of adult educators to lead these programs. 
His leadership legacy lives on through the  Bill Ruth Award, named in his honor, which has been distributed for the last 31 years to many of the top "Dragon Slayers" in Adult Workforce Development.

Why We do What We do
Instructors and staff:  Why do we have to collect so much information on our students?  Why do we have to follow up on students who dropped out?  Why is my financial aid coordinator always asking me about my students’ attendance and grades?  Why do we need to know if our students went to college somewhere else before they enrolled in our programs?  Why can’t we enroll students without a high school diploma or GED in some of our programs?  Why do we have to have some much documentation for our Program Advisory Committees?  Why can’t we just change our program hours or longer if we need to? 
 
This session is intended for new and part-time instructors and staff who may be feeling overwhelmed by all of the rules and procedures in Adult Workforce Education. We’ll explore WHY we have to do the things we do, and provide some templates and timelines that instructors can use to make all of our rules a bit easier to understand.
