Persistence Vs. Retention: Legislation & The Changing Paradigm Of Student Success
Registration Fee: $345.00

Tuesday, May 19 ~ 3:00-4:30pm (Eastern)

Improving the retention and success rates of undergraduate students continues to be a major topic of discussion for higher education administrators and other stakeholders. Retention refers to an institution's ability to retain students from one performance period to the next. Persistence is the student's ability to continue enrollment from one term to subsequent terms. While postsecondary institutions have emphasized retention, the push for greater accountability by tying student completion outcomes to eligibility for federal student aid programs (Partnerships for Affordability and Student Success Act, S. 1874), requires postsecondary institutions to focus on strategies to increase student persistence to degree completion.

Increasing The Academic Achievement Of Minority Males: How To Create A Targeted Program That Will Help Them Succeed
Registration Fee: $345.00

On-Demand Training
An overwhelming body of research highlights non-success of minority males in higher education. Sadly, in some arenas, academia has given up and even unofficially categorized male students of color as Lost Males.

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.

Registration Fee: $395.00

Wednesday, July 8 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)

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.

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.

Intrusive Tutoring: Utilizing Advising, Coaching & Counseling Strategies To Enhance Tutoring Sessions
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. The result will be tutees’ increased awareness about the internal and external barriers to their learning.

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

Friday, April 10 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)

Advances in online technology and a growing trend to diversify assessments have led to the emergence of online group projects. While group projects have a well-established history in traditional educational environments, the value, implementation and acceptance of group work in the online classroom is less clear. Research indicates three distinct benefits to collaborative learning:

  • Effort to achieve
  • Positive relationships
  • Psychological health

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

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

Wednesday, April 15 ~ 3:00-4:30pm (Eastern)

In these difficult economic times of budget cuts and limited resources, it is critical to identify and implement best practices for making the most of existing assets while continuing to serve students effectively. 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). As Vargas (2004) explains, low-income, minority, and first-generation students are especially likely to lack specific types of “college knowledge.” Zimmerman (2000) asserts that at-risk students are less likely to seek help when they need it. As such, educational institutions must provide students with specific types of resources and support to ensure that they move through college successfully.

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.

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.

How To Write Case Notes: Practical Guidance & Risk Mitigation For Case Managers, Counselors & BITs
Registration Fee: $345.00

This webinar can be purchased individually for $345 or part of the 3-Part Webinar Series Package for $750
This webinar can be purchased individually for $345 or part of the 8-Part Webinar Series Package for $2000

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.

Generation Me: Defining & Addressing The Effects Of Entitlement On Today’s College Campuses
Registration Fee: $345.00

Wednesday, April 22 ~ 3:00-4:30pm (Eastern)

Today’s college students are growing up in a world very different than that of the previous generation. Dubbed as “Generation Me” (Twenge, 2006) or the “Trophy Generation,” these students are the product of (Carroll, 2003) consistent positive reinforcement and pampering. This trend, manifested in parents praising children with hopes of raising successful, happy children with high self-esteem (Martin, 2013), has caused other unintended consequences. The emphasis on being special has evolved into a broad sense of entitlement (Crosby, n.d., para. 9).

This webinar can be purchased individually for $345 or part of the 2-Part Webinar Series Package for $545
This webinar can be purchased individually for $345 or part of the 8-Part Webinar Series Package for $2000

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.

Tutor Training: Best Practices & Strategies To Cultivate A Community Of Learners
Registration Fee: $345.00

Wednesday, May 6 ~ 3:00-4:30pm (Eastern)

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.

Creating An FYE Student Success Course For Men Of Color: Methods, Implementation & Results
Registration Fee: $345.00

Thursday, May 7 ~ 3:00-4:30pm (Eastern)

Reaching men of color during their first year of college is essential to secure the academic future of the United States. According to the College Board Advocacy and Policy Center, “If present levels of education and current population trends hold, the United States will see a decline in the educational attainment of the country as a whole. 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.

Retaining International Students: How To Design Targeted Support Services
Registration Fee: $345.00

Wednesday, May 13 ~ 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 programs? 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 planning, poor status of the program, insufficient understanding of the student population, and/or inadequate support services.

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 strategies for program administrators and staff, and highlight research designed to advise administrators and student life professionals on successful strategies for program building and support at the student services level.

The New "At-Risk" Student Seminar: Increasing Retention, Success & Institutional Support
Registration Fee: $345.00

Thursday, May 14 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)

During the last three decades numerous programs and activities have been designed to work with students identified as "at-risk.” Most often these programs have centered on college readiness and preparedness, economic issues, and institutional climate and fit. It is time to expand the definition of "at-risk" to include psychosocial issues, such as students and parents holding unrealistic expectations of the collegiate experience, diminished accountability in the educational process, and an underdeveloped work ethic.

This webinar can be purchased individually for $345 or part of the 2-Part Webinar Series Package
This webinar can be purchased individually for $345 or part of the 8-Part Webinar Series Package for $2000 for $545

Tuesday, May 19 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)

In this webinar, participants will work on two simplified case studies that pose complex fact patterns, but without multiple witnesses, so that we can efficiently review each case within the 90 minute format. In each case, participants will review the case documents, pose questions to the facilitator, and then analyze the known facts to determine a preponderance of the evidence. Each team of participants will weigh in with a conclusion, and then the facilitator will discuss the outcome. Each case challenges the participants to carefully weigh evidence, hunt for the feather (preponderance = 50% plus a feather) and determine whether a policy violation is more likely than not. Sample policies will be provided to serve as a basis for decision. This training is an intermediate to advanced level of inquiry designed to take your investigators to the next level of competence and excellence. Part II of this webinar, in June, will feature the same format, challenging participants with cases on intimate partner violence and stalking.

How To Advise Students Online: Protocols & Pitfalls Of Email Advising
Registration Fee: $345.00

Wednesday, May 20 ~ 3:00-4:30pm (Eastern)

Email advising has readily taken center stage as the preferred method of communication for both students and advisors. Students can write their questions as they occur to them, and advisors have found the email useful in documenting interactions with students. However, email advising can impact the quality of advising relationships, can hinder developmental advising, and can facilitate students’ continued dependence on advisors for information. This session will focus on common pitfalls that occur in email advising and examine limiting factors such as tone, intent, and prescriptive advising.

The Academic Coaching & Engagement program employs full-time staff and graduate students to serve as academic coaches for students experiencing academic difficulty. Participants will learn how ACE coaches translate the Appreciative Advising theory to practice.

In addition, participants will discover how a special section of University 101 was created for students who had failed University 101 the previous semester and/or students who were on academic probation. We will review how the six phases of Appreciative Advising were infused throughout the curriculum and intentionally embedded into the design of the course.

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.

In this webinar, participants will work on two simplified case studies that pose complex fact patterns, but without multiple witnesses, so that we can efficiently review each case within the 90-minute format. In each case, participants will review the case documents, pose questions to the facilitator, and then analyze the known facts to determine a preponderance of the evidence. Each team of participants will weigh in with a conclusion, and then the facilitator will discuss the outcome. Each case challenges the participants to carefully weigh evidence, hunt for the feather (preponderance = 50% plus a feather) and determine whether a policy violation is more likely than not. Sample policies will be provided to serve as a basis for decision. This training is an intermediate to advanced level of inquiry designed to take your investigators to the next level of competence and excellence. Part I of this webinar, in May, will feature the same format, challenging participants with cases on sexual violence and sexual harassment.

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.
