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.

Online Student Services: Creating A Virtual Career Center For Your College
Registration Fee: $345.00

Wednesday, January 21 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)

Millennial students, whether or not they are taking online classes, expect to be able to access college resources 24/7. Providing career services and support programs online not only meets this expectation (and accreditation requirements) but also expands available assistance to students who are place-bound or don’t have time to come to campus.

During this presentation Dr. Denise Swett will focus on the key factors that need to be included in developing a virtual campus center. She will provide resources that can be leveraged, discuss free and commercial services, explore products that can enhance services offered by the college, and recommend a strategy for developing a plan for implementation.

Understanding The New Non-Traditional Student: Supporting Their Success In & Out Of The Classroom
Registration Fee: $345.00

Thursday, January 22 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)

Colleges are so caught up with trying to anticipate the needs of their incoming Millennials and technology-savvy freshmen that sometimes the greatest population of students—the majority in many colleges—is overlooked. This group of students, between the ages of 26 and 30, are “adult” learners who are baffled by college jargon. They are unemployed adults who are serious about their education. They are parents trying to determine how they fit into classes filled with recent high school graduates. They are veterans, baby boomers that cannot afford to retire, unemployed degree holders looking for retraining, refugees, international students, and immigrants.

Time Management Strategies For Online Teaching: How To Engage Students & Avoid Teacher Burnout
Complimentary Webinar

Monday, January 26 ~ 1:00-2:00 (Eastern)

There is a real paradox in online learning: instructors complain that online teaching takes significantly more time compared to face-to-face teaching while online students often complain that their classes lack teacher presence and engagement. The solution can’t be to ask teachers to do more, but we also don’t want students to expect less. This presentation will focus on pedagogical design that identifies online “teaching” as distinct from other important things like planning and grading, as well as thinking explicitly about how students should be using their time in your online class. Come learn how to dial in teaching and learning to foster the success of both faculty and students in online classes.

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

Institutions across the country have struggled to support Veterans with disabilities, which often leads to attrition among this population or even more consequential effects. This webinar will consist of two main components:

  • A description of accommodations and how to engage community resources to develop a support system
  • Case studies of two initiatives at the University of Pittsburgh – one focused on a college transition program and the other a vocational training program in advanced manufacturing that results in employment and education pathways

The first case study focused on helping Veterans with disabilities learn skills to support their overall transition to college, in particular to STEM disciplines. In addition, you will learn how a vocational training program in advanced manufacturing can result in increased access to higher education via alternative pathways and immediate credentials to prepare participants for high-need occupations.

Effective Online Advising: Best Practices For Improved Communication & Connection
Registration Fee: $345.00

Tuesday, January 27 ~ 3:00-4:30pm (Eastern)

Due to decreasing budgets and increasing demands from students for more online support services, advisors are faced with serving more students online. Advising students through a variety of modalities can be challenging due to the fact that online and campus-based students often face common limitations and barriers. In addition, advisors run the risk of eliminating some of the developmental advising strategies that are critical to effective advising as they attempt to manage a seemingly unmanageable amount of emails and phone calls.

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

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.

Registration Fee: $345.00

Tuesday, February 3 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)

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

Higher education is finding itself in a competitive situation in today’s world. One of the differentiating factors is the student experience. Most importantly is how well does the institution integrate the student into its social and academic life? Developing a service excellence strategy is an essential element. However, beyond developing the strategy, there is the challenge of executing the plan. That is the role of the leaders.

In order for our leaders to keep the service excellence plan from becoming another "flavor of the month” program they must weave significant strategies into the fabric of the institution’s processes and systems. This webinar will identify, explain and share examples of the seven leadership actions to instill and sustain a culture of service excellence over time.

Increasing Student Persistence & Success: 5 High-Impact Practices For Immediate Implementation
Registration Fee: $345.00

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

If you are plagued by “paralysis by analysis” or “information overload” it can be exceedingly difficult to put even the best plans into action. You are likely familiar with the benefits of high-impact experiences, but perhaps you are stagnated because you lack a solid plan. You need skill, vision, and focus in order to navigate the various organizational and political environments it takes to make these practices a reality.

This webinar will discuss five platforms for high-impact experiences and how they can be implemented right now to benefit students. The benefits to a variety of stakeholders as well as how to start planning these experiences will be covered. These platforms include service learning, undergraduate research, active/collaborative learning, learning communities, and common intellectual experiences. The insight we will uncover is exactly what you need to get motivated and take action.

Managing Overly Involved Parents: Effective Strategies For Deescalating Aggressive Behavior
Registration Fee: $345.00

Wednesday, February 4 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)

Millennial students that have been raised to believe that “the world is their oyster” often have parents who want to ensure their success. Some parents fail to make the transition from K-12 to college and can become overly involved in all aspects of their child’s college experience. In the extreme, parents can become demanding and aggressive. It might be tempting to just hang up the phone or shove a FERPA form in their face, but there are more effective strategies to resolve the issue at hand.

This webinar will guide you in how to respond when hovering turns into hollering. In a manner that enhances parental cooperation and promotes the student’s well being, participants will apply basic principles for active listening, boundary setting, and problem solving to deescalate aggressive behavior.

How To Develop and Implement A Summer Bridge Program For First-Generation College Students
How To Develop & Implement A Summer Bridge Program For First-Generation College Students
Registration Fee: $345.00

Tuesday, February 10 ~ 3:00-4:30pm (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. At-risk groups of students present unique issues and as such, addressing budgetary issues becomes even more important. When looking at the needs of first-generation college-goers, institutions must understand the variety of challenges these students experience 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). As such, educational institutions must provide students with specific types of resources and support to ensure that they move into and through college successfully, even during times of budget cuts.

Supporting & Retaining Single Parent Students In Higher Education
Registration Fee: $345.00

Tuesday, February 10 ~ 1:00-2:30 pm (Eastern)

Note: Because the majority of single parents in higher education are single mothers, this webinar will focus on this group. However, much of the information is applicable to all single parents.

Student parents are one of the fastest growing student body populations. Roughly 4.8 million college students have children, and a 2 million of those students are single mothers. This webinar will address the factors deterring single mother students from completing their degrees and ways to intervene on their behalf within higher educational institutions. The speaker will review the most common factors single mother students struggle with and explain ways to identify these struggles early on in the student’s academic career. She will discuss programs at various institutions of higher education as well as a unique statewide program in Oklahoma focusing on single mother student success. The speaker will highlight simple ways institutions can provide a more inclusive and supportive atmosphere for single mother students, thereby encouraging their academic success and overall satisfaction with the college experience.

Strategies To Motivate Your Students To Read & Prepare Before Class
Registration Fee: $345.00

Wednesday, February 11 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern time)

Student readings are a usual and integral part of most courses. You can tell students why the reading is necessary for the course. But do they come to class having completed readings and ready for the next steps? If your answer is no or usually not, this seminar is for you.

Dr. Alice Cassidy will share with you techniques she has found to be successful in her practice and provide references to the theoretical grounding in the literature. Learn how to make pre-reading meaningful to students by helping them connect classroom activities directly to sections of the text. You will see how techniques such as Ticket to Class, Value Line, Mind and Concept Maps, Reflection, and Jigsaw can turn “It doesn’t really matter if I read this” into “I want to read this and link to the course topics.”

Teaching Time Management: How To Increase On-Time Graduation Rates, Student Involvement & Academic Achievement
Registration Fee: $345.00

Thursday, February 12 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)

One of the primary, most overlooked reasons students aren’t graduating or graduating on time is their time management. We assume that everyone has this skill, but they don’t. In high school, students' schedules are set up for them by other people from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. The average high school student is in a class from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and then has sports and homework in the evening. In college, students have to learn to manage their time and this is where they fall through the cracks. The gaps in their schedule between their 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. class become the gaps in graduation rates. With only 16 hours of class, students have enough time to succeed, but without specific daily assignments and accountability, they end up taking 5 or 6 years to graduate. By simply teaching students how to manage their time, we can increase on-time graduation rates, student involvement, and academic achievement.

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

A wealth of higher education research points to the importance of the institution’s website in the college selection process. Regardless of age or student type, institutional websites are the source most often cited as the venue through which the college search begins. For this reason, your website is your institution’s most valuable marketing asset and thus, warrants investment and a well-developed strategy.

Tuesday, February 17 ~ 3:00-4:30pm (Eastern) & Tuesday, February 24 ~ 3:00-4:30pm (Eastern)

2-Part Series

In an age of increasing demands for accountability in higher education, many learning assistance programs are coming under increasing scrutiny. We need to perform at the highest level of professional standards in our assessment and evaluation processes, and as much as possible, we need to do our own work. Learning some basic assessment and evaluation strategies can positively impact the quality of our individual services and the capacity of our profession to establish firmly the importance of learning assistance in higher education.

In this two-part workshop, participants will be engaged in a practical overview of three evaluation strategies for tutoring programs: qualitative, quantitative, and criterion-referenced assessment. From data collection to reporting results, participants will have opportunities to refine their evaluation plans and find help as they proceed with those plans.

How To Make Online Discussion Assignments Manageable & Meaningful For Students & Faculty
Registration Fee: $345.00

Tuesday, February 17 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)

Online discussions are both a promise and a peril for online teaching and learning. Discussions offer great potential for student-student interaction and collaboration as well as for student and instructor engagement. But, discussions can also easily overwhelm both students and teachers with seemingly endless “unread” posts to read, reply to, and assess. This presentation will focus on the best practices I’ve discovered over 20 years of online teaching and coaching other online teachers. Participants will learn how to design and implement online discussion assignments that foster engagement and learning while being meaningful and sustainable for both students and faculty.

There is no doubt that colleges with strong student ambassador programs reap the benefits of increased enrollment, better retention, and strengthened community relationships. From showcasing the quality and diversity of their student population to having a highly trained student team available to assist with special events and outreach programs, it is clear that colleges can reap incredible benefits from well-managed student ambassador programs. An added benefit is for the student ambassador, as they gain valuable experience that makes them stand out to potential employers with their strong leadership, organizational, and supervisory skills.

Enhancing Student Engagement With A Virtual Teaching Assistant & Other Online Tools
Registration Fee: $345.00

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.

Reflective Practice: Action-Based Skills For Personal & Professional Development
Complimentary Webinar

Friday, March 6 ~ 3:00-4:00pm (Eastern)

A recent faculty study (2012) by the Higher Education Research Institute found the following stressors: 85% of faculty experienced disconnects due to “self-imposed high expectations,” 83% due to a lack of personal time, and 63% due to teaching load. This is a critical first step in reflective practice: being aware of what is happening in our personal and professional lives. But we need to help our entire campus community to move from awareness to action.

Often we move from one experience to another without appropriate observation, analysis, and evaluation. “Critical reflection refers to an activity or process in which an experience is recalled, considered, and evaluated, usually in relation to a broader purpose.”

This interactive session examines the benefits of critical reflection as it relates to professional development and personal resilience. Participants will have a chance to identify their “bright spots” and “not-so-bright” spots when it comes to areas such as teaching, learning, advising, collegial collaboration and personal development. In short: What IS working and what is NOT working?

This webinar will outline strategies you can use to develop an inclusive and comprehensive professional development program on your campus. Professional development can provide the a bridge to deliver training for the campus community to support student success and completion more effectively. It is critical to all members of the college community to have access to and support for professional development opportunities. Faculty, staff and administrators all contribute to the success of the institution and need to be included in all efforts to communicate values, participate in trainings and workshops and have the same opportunities to work with colleagues and peers to support and advance the mission of the college.

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.

Delivering a dynamic presentation does not have to be a mystery. First and foremost, a presentation is never about the speaker. It is always about the audience members. The difference between a miserable presentation and a powerful, engaging program comes down to preparation and respect. When presenters take time to know their audience, their mission, and their topic, they show respect for the people in front of them.
