Effective Strategies To Help Faculty Achieve New Semester Goals & Improve Their Teaching
Complimentary Webinar

On-Demand Training
Do you have big plans for next semester? Like New Year’s resolutions, plans for changes and improvements faculty want to make in a new semester are often discarded, ignored, or rationalized away. Unfortunately, big intentions plus minimal action equals unachieved goals. Perhaps you know people who have started with a list of goals only to lose heart and revert to old habits. They had hoped to improve one or more areas of their classrooms—and did not.

We all have the experience: A customer comes to our service window or calls the college with a problem and, seemingly without provocation, becomes verbally aggressive or demanding to the point where we are at a loss for words. When we have been broadsided like this, it is very difficult to recover and continue to work toward a solution with the customer. Instead we are often caught up in the negativity and these interactions end badly for all involved. What can you do when you can’t think of what to do?

This webinar will equip you with 10 standard phrases designed for the common situations that arise in colleges when students, parents, or other customers are unhappy and behaving inappropriately. Participants will learn key phrases for particular types of interactions and will learn to identify and address some common underlying issues that may be creating the problem in the first place.

This webinar can be purchased individually for $345 or part of the 3-Part Webinar Series Package for $750

Wednesday, March 4 ~ 3:00-4:30pm (Eastern)

Teachers across the country have struggled to motivate students to engage with one another, with their teachers, and to be excited about preparing for class. Students have many valid reasons for not doing the homework: family obligations, emergencies, illness, work, etc. The interesting part is that even with all of this going on students manage to constantly communicate with family, classmates and friends through their smartphones, tablets and laptops. This led Lorette Weldon, EdD, to create an avatar teaching assistant in a blended- animated flipped classroom environment. The avatar incorporates the technology that students hold dear and allows them to keep a constant flow of student engagement inside and outside of the classroom.

How To Create A Unique & Memorable Campus Visit Experience
Registration Fee: $345.00

Friday, March 13 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)

It’s past time to throw out the traditional playbook for campus visits. There is nothing unique or memorable about the “old school” approach to the campus visit experience. Visits represent the “make or break” decision point for many prospective students. The campus visit deserves the same level of investment, planning, and execution that Disney gives to every attraction at its theme parks. Disney innovatively designs every “guest experience” to ensure a lasting memory emerges. Colleges and universities can benefit from the lessons learned by Disney.

Through this webinar, participants will gain insights into how to deconstruct and re-engineer every facet of the visit experience. Specifically, the pre-visit, arrival, campus visit, and post-visit experiences will be illuminated with underlying tenets, tips, best practices, and much more.

How To Provide Meaningful Feedback In An Online Environment
Registration Fee: $345.00

This webinar can be purchased individually for $345 or part of the 3-Part Webinar Series Package for $750

Thursday, March 19 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)

While the value of elaborative feedback to student work is clearly established across all modes of higher education, the importance of feedback is elevated in the online environment due to the isolated nature in which students are learning. In an online course, feedback not only enhances students’ cognitive understanding of course material, but it provides a mechanism for motivation, interpersonal connection and engagement. Research reveals that instructor feedback on students’ work is perceived as one of the most important aspects of interactivity in the online classroom. This presentation examines the impact and value of utilizing a range of feedback strategies (audio, video, written) to foster student learning, engagement and satisfaction.

Practical Strategies For Facilitating Interaction In The Cross-Cultural Classroom
Registration Fee: $345.00

Friday, March 20 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)

Educators of international students are frequently challenged with a clashing diversity of cultures in a global classroom. This presentation describes and demonstrates what sorts of themes and images might resonate across nationalities and cultures, which can be used to ease the way for students and educators in international classes. The findings were used to consider instructional applications for more effective learning in international classroom settings, as well as identify hazards posed from misapplication of transcultural tools.

The study findings indicate applied themes and images, including babies/children, animals, relationships, sports, life cycles, and self-image, may help evoke a positive transcultural resonance for a common base of shared experience. The presentation provides practical examples of how transcultural tactics can be applied in real and virtual global settings.

How Microlectures Can Increase Online Student Engagement, Motivation & Success
Registration Fee: $345.00

This webinar can be purchased individually for $345 or part of the 3-Part Webinar Series Package for $750

Tuesday, March 31 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)

Online faculty need empirically-driven guidelines to inform the selective inclusion of lecture-based videos in their online courses. The natural tendency may be to imitate the traditional 30- to 50-minute lecture format of the face-to-face classroom. However, the emergence of microlectures (short informational lectures 1 to 5 minutes in length) challenges the length, content and value of this approach. Emerging research highlights the impact of microlectures on the cognitive, motivational and satisfaction factors of students in the online classroom. Microlectures provide an efficient and cost-effective means for online faculty to present content, connect with their students and engage with disciplinary content. This presentation will discuss strategies for creating effective microlectures and will highlight the impact of microlectures on student learning, engagement, motivational and satisfaction.

Registration Fee: $345.00

Thursday, April 9 ~ 1:00-2:00pm (Eastern)

While many capable students seek out tutoring to enhance academic success, others inevitably seek help for academic challenges. In order for tutors to effectively assist tutees, particularly those at risk, applying intrusive tutoring strategies are most likely to yield positive results.

Intrusive tutoring draws from other helping professions, such as intrusive advising, to augment and enhance tutoring sessions. Using strategies that draw from the fields of advising, coaching, and counseling will provide critical information about what prevents tutees from thriving. This webinar will help tutors be more comfortable and confident utilizing intrusive strategies with their tutees.

How & When To Use “Trigger Warnings”: To Shield Or Not To Shield
Registration Fee: $345.00

Tuesday, April 14 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)

“Trigger warnings” had their origins in feminist blogs as a way of alerting the reader that the content they were about to read has the potential to evoke strong emotional reaction in some people. The initial intent was to shield those who may be susceptible to strong words, sounds and images from the detrimental effects that exposure to such content could have on their emotional health and well-being. As the use of “trigger warning” has spread to higher education, it has become a controversial and much-debated practice with passionate advocates on both sides of the issue. In this webinar, we will explore the origins of “trigger warnings” such as:

  • How they are currently employed
  • Why they are so controversial with some members of the campus community
  • How they can be beneficial to achieving institutional goals and objectives in a variety of sensitive but essential areas

Specific attention will be given to the implications for Title IX and ADA compliance.

Partners For Success: Developing An Effective Peer Mentoring Program To Support First-Generation College Students
Registration Fee: $345.00

Wednesday, April 15 ~ 3:00-4:40pm (Eastern)
In these difficult economic times of budget cuts and limited resources determining best practices for making the most of existing assets while continuing to serve students effectively is critical. First-generation college-goers experience a variety of challenges as they enter and move through higher education. In fact, much of the existing research indicates that students whose parents did not attend college are more likely than their non first-generation counterparts to be less academically prepared for college, to have less knowledge of how to apply for college and for financial assistance, and to have more difficulty in acclimating themselves to college once they enroll (Tym, et al., 2005).

How To Assess & Improve Your Academic Advising Program
Registration Fee: $345.00

This webinar can be purchased individually for $345 or part of the 2-Part Webinar Series Package for $545

Wednesday, April 15 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)

Today’s institutions of higher education are being asked to demonstrate higher course completion, retention and graduation rates, along with applying more fiscal accountability measures to their operations. These demands are challenged, however, as they are expected to be met in the face of potentially fewer college students, more student debt, a stagnant economy, and a deflated employment environment. On many campuses, academic advising has become the most frequently, and perhaps the most likely, student support effort identified to enable meeting these demands.

Using The What Works Clearinghouse Standards To Assess Student Programs & Outcomes
Registration Fee: $345.00

This webinar can be purchased individually for $345 or part of the 2-Part Webinar Series Package for $545

Thursday, April 16 ~ 3:00-4:40pm (Eastern)

Research in education is filled with various impact analyses that claim that certain programs and initiatives have improved student outcomes. However, not all studies are created equal, and some studies are considered to be more rigorous than others, leading to more confident claims that programs are effective. The US Department of Education has created a set of standards through their What Works Clearinghouse (WWC), which provides specific guidelines on what an impact analysis needs in order to be considered an appropriately rigorous design.

First-Year Students & Libraries: Assessing The Impact Of Information Literacy
Registration Fee: $345.00

Friday, April 17 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)
The North Lake College Library (NLCL) is known for its innovative approach to library use in the classroom. This past year, the library took its instruction a step further. As part of EDUC 1300, a class aimed at allowing first-year college students to gain a strong footing in the academic world, the library incorporated information literacy components into normal classroom instruction. While partnering with the EDUC instructor, the academic librarians combine online and database-driven resources, information regarding print and non-print research, as well as pathways into transfer and employment as part of the course curriculum. Careful emphasis is placed on the difference between high school “reports” and college “research” papers, and the librarian and instructor are charged with educating the first-year student on what is expected from them as college students. At the end of the course, the students are assessed on what they learned and also how they can use the knowledge and skills in further endeavors. Finally, the success of these students is measured against that of students in subsequent English classes that did not have the learning frameworks course.

Registration Fee: $345.00

This webinar can be purchased individually for $345 or part of the 3-Part Webinar Series Package for $750

Tuesday, April 21 ~ 3:00-4:30pm (Eastern)

This program offers clear, practical examples of what a case note should look like for BIT members, case managers, and counselors.

What makes a good note for a BIT, case management or a counseling center? This topic has been tackled in the past as it applies to record management and general best practices, but often leaves the question remaining: what does a good note look like?

Based on his decades of clinical experience, Dr. Van Brunt will guide participants through examples of common mistakes BITs, case management teams and counseling centers make in their documentation. These will include:

  • Taking too long to write the note and forgetting important details
  • Not including enough information in the note
  • Including too much detail in the note beyond what is needed
  • Using subjective or overly descriptive language in the note
  • Failing to close a door in future notes that was opened in an earlier note

In addition to discussing what not to do, Dr. Van Brunt will share over a dozen examples of well-written notes to be used as templates and guides when staff are addressing suicidal behavior, non-compliance with interventions, referrals for mental health or academic support, inclusion of dissenting opinions in managing the case, and how to include third party documentation.

Supporting Survivors: Sexual Violence Victimology & Advocacy
Registration Fee: $345.00

Wednesday, April 22 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)

As campus sexual violence becomes increasingly addressed by legislators, administrators, and the media, it is helpful to gain a foundational understanding of how victims experience trauma. There are also ways to shape our interactions with survivors to be more supportive of their immediate and long-term needs, not secondarily traumatize or revictimize them, and to aid in their path to healing. One advocate and one administrator, Michelle Issadore, M.Ed., Executive Director of the School and College Organization for Prevention Educators (SCOPE) and Marianne Price, M.S., Associate Vice President for Professional Program Development of The NCHERM Group, will discuss how to balance survivors' needs with campus safety and one's role in the reporting process.

Removing Suicidal Students From Campus: The Significance Of Recent Changes In Federal Policy
Registration Fee: $345.00

Thursday, April 23 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)

Should suicidal students stay on campus or should they go? If they stay, how should a school address suicidal behavior on campus? If they go, under what circumstances can they return?

The Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights (OCR) made significant changes in policy that leave colleges and universities in a catch-22 when managing suicidal students on campus or addressing requests for re-entry for students who continue to struggle with active suicidal thoughts. Remove these students from campus through a forced medical withdrawal and face an ADA lawsuit for discrimination against the student. Leave the student on campus struggling with suicidal ideations and be sued for not having the services available to adequately treat the student’s medical condition.

Found under Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the revised regulation now deems it unlawful to involuntarily separate, suspend, or expel a student on the basis of self-harmful or suicidal behaviors.

Shorten The Pipeline: How To Teach An Integrated, Accelerated Developmental Reading & Writing Course
Registration Fee: $345.00

Friday, April 24 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)

National data on developmental reading and writing course attrition shows that about 29 percent of students who enroll in such courses do not successfully complete them (Attewell, Lavin, Domina, & Levey, 2006; Bailey, 2009). The attrition rate is even more drastic for students who require more than one level of developmental reading and writing coursework. About 56 percent of students who are required to take a sequence of two or more developmental reading and writing courses do not successfully complete the sequence (Attewell et al., 2006; Bailey, 2009). These high attrition rates, coupled with the increasing costs of such coursework, necessitate developmental education reform. Consequently, developmental education is under great scrutiny at the state and federal levels.

The challenges of developing a tutor training program from scratch or reinvigorating an existing program are plentiful. Learning centers are often understaffed and lack time and resources. Many times, personnel that double as tutor trainers find themselves without enough time to reflect on program development and implementation. Difficult questions begin to arise. What topics should be covered? What tutor training techniques will function to bring out the most salient issues? What are the most effective modes of delivery? What if the tutors don’t have the time to attend the essential elements of the training program? What are the most important lessons?

Retaining International Students: Designing Effective Instruction To Meet Their Needs
Registration Fee: $345.00

Wednesday, May 6 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)

Post-secondary institutions facing enrollment shortages often recruit international and ESL students to bolster their rolls. Yet, do these organizations really understand the needs, desires, and nuances affecting international student learning? Some post-secondary institutions neglect to do their research on developing quality education and services for these specialized populations, resulting in attrition, the very problem that attracting these students is intended to solve. Often, this attrition results from a lack of research and understanding of the student population and the acculturation process, misconceptions about language proficiency levels, and the ways to adapt teaching and assessment strategies for students at varying levels.

This webinar will question participants’ assumptions about international students and English Language Learners (ELLs) and explain commonalities and differences among students in these populations. The presenter will feature effective academic strategies for faculty and staff, and highlight research designed to advise faculty and administrators on successful strategies for teaching and assessment.

The goal of ensuring the future global competitiveness of the U.S. cannot be met without the full participation of our nation's young men of color.”

Are Your Students Prepared? How To Improve Support Services To Enhance Workforce Preparation
Registration Fee: $345.00

Thursday, May 7 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)

With continuing workforce initiatives coming down from the White House and the ever present concerns that colleges are not preparing graduates for what employers consider critical skills and knowledge to succeed, colleges need to realign their support services to improve success. While new graduates may believe they are ready to enter the real world of working full-time, most employers are skeptical that they have the skills needed to succeed. A 2014 study by Northeastern University found that 87% of business leaders surveyed believed that recent graduates lack the skills needed to succeed in a job. Additionally those surveyed said job preparation at the college level has declined over the last 10 to 15 years, resulting in higher education institutions not being aligned with current job market needs.
