Professional Development from STARLINK

News and Updates

Welcome Back! Let's make Fall the semester of success! STARLINK can help. We believe that through listening, encouragement, leading by example and giving students a sense of belonging and community, we can help them achieve their dreams. With that said, we hit a grand-slam with our new release, “What the Best College Students Do”, with Dr. Ken Bain.

Dr. Bain identifies the key attitudes that distinguishes the best college students from their peers.

In addition, please be sure to check out our other September releases:

  • Learning Styles
  • Articulate Storyline - Basic Training
  • Higher Ed Hot Topic: Engage Your Students, Strategies and Best Practices

Wishing you all the very best for a productive and rewarding fall semester. We look forward to seeing you online!
