PUTNEY — Landmark College, a leader in educating students with learning differences, will host the Spring 2019 Conference of the New England Faculty Development Consortium (NEFDC) on Friday, June 7.

The one-day conference theme, "Education in the Age of Anxiety" addresses topics related to supporting students, faculty and staff across all academic disciplines. Program offerings include the keynote address, interactive workshops, teaching tips, and poster sessions.

This year's keynote will be delivered by Jerome Schultz, Ph.D., a clinical neuropsychologist and lecturer on psychology at Harvard Medical School. The address, entitled "Rescuing the Canary in the Coal Mine: Anxiety and Stress Go to College. What to Know. What to Do" will examine what faculty can and must do to help students find appropriate professional support, and offer practical "first-responder" strategies that can help students feel less stressed without sacrificing academic standards.

NEFDC membership is comprised of private and public colleges and universities throughout New England. While members qualify for discounted registration, their bi-annual conferences are open to anyone with an interest in professional development opportunities for faculty and administrators.
