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.

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

Wednesday, October 29 ~ 1:00-2:30 (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.

Addressing The Unique Needs Of Undocumented Students: How Recent Policy Changes Affect College Access
Registration Fee: $345.00

Wednesday, December 10 ~ 3:00-4:30 (Eastern)
With the Obama Administration’s passage of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) initiative, the United States has begun to pave the way for many undocumented students to pursue college without the threat of deportation. Many universities are now seeing an influx of applications among this special population. With 65,000 undocumented students graduating from U.S. high schools each year, applications are sure to increase as states begin to lower tuition costs and offer financial aid to these students. What do you need to know about policies, on both the local and national levels, in order to best serve and welcome students from this growing population?

Creating An Effective Faculty Advising Program: How To Improve Student Success
Creating An Effective Faculty Advising Program: How To Improve Student Success
Registration Fee: $545.00

2-Part Workshop
Part 1: Tuesday, October 14 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)
Part 2: Tuesday, October 21 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)

In spite of the fact that faculty academic advising has the potential to become a central component in the delivery of quality services to students, its power is often unrealized by individuals in leadership positions on the college campus. National surveys find academic advising is second only to the quality of instruction among student priorities, while faculty surveyed at two- and four-year colleges overwhelmingly agree there is a relationship between advising and retention. Some individuals continue to view advising as a perfunctory and mundane process of helping students plan their class schedules. This session is intended to provide faculty members, decision makers and resource allocators with a better understanding of the role faculty advisors play in student success and institutional effectiveness.

The Jones Campaign: How To Dramatically Increase Visits To Your Learning Center
Registration Fee: $345.00

Tuesday, October 21, 2014 ~ 3:00 - 4:30pm (Eastern)
Students who most need your help are not going to seek out your help. You are not fun. You are not “hip.” Asking for help makes them feel dumb. Getting tutoring and going to the learning center reminds them of those kids who were assigned to the bluebird reading group. Everyone knew they were the kids who were “not as smart as the others.” No one wants to be in that group.

How Faculty Can Manage Difficult Conversations With Students
How Faculty Can Manage Difficult Conversations With Students
Registration Fee: $345.00

Wednesday, October 22 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)
In today’s world of blurred lines of communication, students often approach faculty with difficult conversations that go beyond the content area of study. This is a challenging situation for both faculty and student. Conversations can fall into a wide range of topics and they often cause stress and unforeseen challenges for faculty struggling with balance and finding the appropriate response. A student may be having a mental health crisis, panic around grades, angry outbursts, or social problems that extend beyond the classroom door.

The Autism Spectrum: Helping Students Transition & Succeed
Registration Fee: $345.00

Tuesday, November 4 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)
Transitioning to college is an exciting time for all students, however this time of life comes with a variety of challenges. When thinking about students with special needs, this period can prove even more difficult. Characterized by an insistence on sameness and deficits in social communication and interaction, students on the autism spectrum are faced with academic, social, and self-management demands that they may have never handled on their own. They may need additional support to navigate this transition successfully and adjust to living independently. In addition, their parents will likely need coaching on the differences between K-12 policies and college expectations.

Registration Fee: $345.00

Wednesday, November 5 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)
The Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights (OCR) recently made significant changes in policy that made it more difficult for colleges and universities to avoid missteps, to understand legal liability, and to effectively manage outcomes when it comes to suicidal students who present a danger to others on campus. Found under Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the revised regulation now deems it unlawful to involuntarily separate, suspend, block readmission, or expel a student on the basis of self-harmful or suicidal behaviors.

Registration Fee: $345.00

Thursday, November 6 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)
The nationwide conversation about tuition costs and the true value of a college education grows every day, as institutions of higher education are asked to defend the product they offer students. This can be a difficult challenge, especially considering the wide variety of types and missions of higher education institutions. How can colleges show the value they create for their students and, more importantly, how do they measure and improve their value proposition so that students remain engaged and enrollment remains stable?

Registration Fee: $345.00

Thursday, November 13 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)

Social media plays a significant role in how students communicate and develop communities. College students experiencing grief and loss may be afraid to turn to traditional forms of support and instead use social media to express what can be called "cyber grieving." Platforms such as Facebook and Twitter represent new ways for people to authentically express themselves and as such, it is important for administrators and student affairs professionals to understand the role these networks play in the grief process.

Effective Classroom Observations: An Alternative Approach That Supports Faculty & Improves Student Success
Registration Fee: $345.00

Tuesday, November 18 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)
Classroom observations are often used as part of the faculty evaluation process. Generally, the observations are conducted at the end of the term with the sole purpose of completing required evaluation forms. However, if institutions are focused on learning, the intent of observations must shift from an evaluation tool to a valuable set of experiences designed to support faculty and improve the quality of teaching and learning.

Cheating In An Online Environment: How To Prevent, Detect and Deter Dishonesty
Cheating In An Online Environment: How To Prevent, Detect & Deter Dishonesty
Registration Fee: $345.00

Tuesday, November 18 ~ 3:00-4:30pm (Eastern)
Colleges and universities across the country are increasing their offerings of online courses as students and the general public demand greater access to higher education. One problem inherent in online education is the greater opportunity to cheat on quizzes, papers, and discussions. When students are not in the classroom, but on the other end of the Internet, they cannot be directly observed or monitored. This creates problems for students and professors as they struggle with maintaining the integrity of the course and seeking to ensure that all students do their own work and learn the selected material.

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

Tuesday, December 2 ~ 3:00-4:30 (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).

Developing A Comprehensive First-Year Experience Program: Strategic Support, Foundational Frameworks & Campus Buy-In
Registration Fee: $345.00

Tuesday, December 2 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)
The first year of college continues to be the most critical and vulnerable period for student attrition at all types of higher education institutions, including highly selective colleges and universities. Provision of timely, proactive support for first-year students can also lead to cumulative effects that extend beyond the first year, culminating in higher college completion rates and greater gains in student learning between matriculation and graduation.

Developmental Education Reform: How To Implement An Accelerated Course To Increase Retention
Registration Fee: $345.00

Wednesday, December 3 ~ 3:00-4:30 (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.

Registration Fee: $345.00

Wednesday, December 3 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)

In this webinar, Joe Cuseo will examine the multiplicity of factors that work singularly and collectively to trigger student attrition and identify the components of a systematic plan to increase student persistence and success. Unearthing the roots of student attrition represents the critical first step in the process of building a well-designed, systematic retention plan. Once the core causes of student attrition have been examined, the results provide the basis for constructing a comprehensive and coordinated retention plan consisting of specific practices, programs, and policies.

Emergency Preparedness: How To Educate Your Campus, Market Your Plan & Mitigate Harm
Registration Fee: $345.00

Thursday, December 11 ~ 3:00-4:30 (Eastern)

You have your emergency plan in writing. You even have some individuals and small teams trained in the basics of emergency response. But what happens when an emergency occurs during peak hours, when classes and offices are full? How do you make sure that your faculty and staff know what to do? How well do they know policies and protocols? How do they know where to find the information they need during an emergency, and better yet, how do they know when and how they can help? A well-informed, educated campus can help mitigate damage and harm during and after an emergency. This webinar will explore various methods to market an emergency plan on campus; identify key personnel to help promote the plan on campus; introduce various methods of training and preparation for emergency situations; and get participants thinking about what will work on their campuses.

Pop & Sizzle! How To Create & Deliver A Dynamic Presentation
Complimentary Webinar

On-Demand Training
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.
