Education Secretary Miguel Cardona appeared before the Senate Appropriations Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) subcommittee to discuss the Department of Education’s (ED) budget for fiscal year 2023, updates on the student loan portfolio, investments in higher education programs, and more developments within the department.

In a book titled "The Workshop Survival Guide: How to Design and Teach Workshops That Work Every Time," authors Rob Fitzpatrick and Devin Hunt write about a way to design and teach workshops that are concrete, understandable, and easy to implement. "A feature of the book I especially appreciated is a handy outline it includes on how to develop a workshop from scratch," writes Loretta Jones, who read the book and shared her opinions of its content with NASFAA. "As financial aid professionals, we often present workshops to a wide range of audiences on diverse topics, whether we're working with our own staff, others on campus, students, parents, or conference participants. The outline offers the flexibility to apply the authors' methods while tailoring them to the specific needs of the audience." What follows are Loretta's takeaways, thoughts, and reflections.
