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.

It’s Complicated: How To Identify & Resolve Unhealthy Relationship Issues In College
Registration Fee: $345.00

Friday, September 19 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)
The quality of our relationships affects our lives in many ways, including our self-esteem, our ability to handle stress, and our academic and work-related productivity. Many students enter into romantic relationships during the college years. The beginning of these relationships can be exhilarating and exciting. As these relationships progress, however, they require effort to maintain as well as constant re-evaluation. Healthy relationships require good communication and cooperation. Often, especially with college students who lack experience in dealing with the demands of romantic relationships, problems arise.

Tuesday, September 23 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)
A student shows up at your front desk yelling, crying, upset, frustrated, tearful, angry, overwhelmed, pushy, aggravated, annoyed, demanding, obnoxious, smelly, drunk, disoriented. What do you do? Front office staff, like soldiers on the front lines of battle, is often placed in situations where they are nose-to-nose with students, faculty, and staff who are not at their best. They are asked to create a warm, caring, customer-service focused place for students, faculty, and staff to have their questions answered.

7 Common Title IX Mistakes: How To Train Faculty On Sexual Harassment Compliance
7 Common Title IX Mistakes: How To Train Faculty On Sexual Harassment Compliance
Registration Fee: $345.00

Friday, September 26 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)

This program will focus on seven common missteps in relation to Title IX and a critical campus constituency – the faculty. Title IX and sexual violence on college and university campuses have gained heightened prominence since the release of the April 4, 2011 “Dear Colleague Letter,” coupled with heightened federal enforcement and recent federal legislation. Over the last few years, institutions have focused largely on updating and adjusting student-based policies, procedures, and trainings. Higher education has also dedicated time and resources to training the administrators and staff who uphold and implement these policies and procedures. The faculty component of Title IX is, however, key to compliance.

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

Wednesday, September 10 ~ 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. 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.

Reflective Judgment: Teaching Students To Think Critically In A Time Of Information Overload
Registration Fee: $345.00

Friday, September 12 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)
Each day, Google users perform more than 5.1 billion searches. Wikipedia claims over 30 million articles in 286 languages. Today’s students have greater access to information than ever before. As Keeling (2004) articulated in Learning Reconsidered: A Campus-Wide Focus on the Student Experience, “…knowledge is no longer a scarce – or stable – commodity. (It) is changing so rapidly that specific information may become obsolete before a student graduates and has the opportunity to apply it.”

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

Tuesday, September 16 ~ 1:00-2:30 (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.

Adult Learners:  Creating A Comprehensive Support Program To Address Needs and Increase Retention
Adult Learners: Creating A Comprehensive Support Program To Address Needs & Increase Retention
Registration Fee: $345.00

Wednesday, September 17 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)
Adult learners over 25-years-old now make up 40 percent of all students attending community colleges in the United States. Because they are open access, provide accelerated certificate programs, focus on basic skills, and have extensive vocational curriculums, community colleges are often the best choice for adult students. As this population increases, community colleges must create new and innovative approaches that address specific needs to support adult student enrollment, build strategies that improve their persistence and achievement rates, and lessen institutional barriers that prevent successful outcomes.

Intrusive Academic Advising: An Effective Strategy To Increase Student Success
Intrusive Academic Advising: An Effective Strategy To Increase Student Success
Registration Fee: $345.00

Thursday, September 18 ~ 3:00-4:30 (Eastern)
The Noel-Levitz Student Satisfaction Surveys find academic advising to be among students’ top priorities. Students in public universities identify advising as their number one concern. For students in private college, it is their number two concern and for community college students, it stands at number three. Research from the National Surveys of Student Engagement (NSSE) and the Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE) conclude that the more interaction students have with faculty and staff, the more likely they are to learn effectively and persist toward achievement of their educational goals. These findings have led an increasing number of colleges and universities to implement intrusive, proactive, or invitational academic advising as a central element in their efforts to increase student engagement, persistence, and success. This advising approach means that campuses—through instructional faculty, academic advisors, counselors, and programs—take the initiative to reach out to students to provide advice, support, referral, and assistance, rather than waiting for students to seek help.

Registration Fee: $345.00

Flexible Date
Thursday, September 25 ~ 1:00-2:30 & Wednesday, October 29 ~ 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.

Student Motivation: Practical Strategies That Will Increase Engagement, Learning and Retention
Student Motivation: Practical Strategies That Will Increase Engagement, Learning & Persistence
Registration Fee: $345.00

Wednesday, September 17 ~ 3:00-4:30 (Eastern)

“If only my students were motivated to learn!” Perhaps you have heard that lament or something similar. Sometimes the discussion devolves into a search for “techniques” to move our students from the edges of sleep to the edges of their seats. It can be a slippery slope. Technique without connection, without meaning, and without understanding will not help us—or our students.

Get On The Bus: The Recruiting, Hiring, Retention, & Dismissal Of Student Employees
Registration Fee: $345.00

Wednesday, October 1 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)
The great staffing of employees is like driving a bus says Jim Collins, author of Good to Great (2001). With some expansion, Collin's analogy serves as the conceptual framework for the recruitment, hiring, retention and dismissal of student employees. The driver has to choose carefully whom to put on the bus. The driver has to find the right seat for each person on the bus. The driver has to build a community on the bus so that the people will want to continue the ride. And finally, the driver has to be ready to ask people to get off the bus when necessary. If you manage student employees, you are that driver. This workshop will prepare participants to strengthen their academic unit through best practices in the selection and management of student employees.

Developing Effective Pre-Assessment Activities To Increase Student Success
Registration Fee: $345.00

Thursday, October 2 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)
The ultimate goal of any institution of higher learning should be the success of its students, however, too often colleges do not do enough to meet this objective. In particular, the importance of assessing first-time college students is frequently miscommunicated and/or misunderstood. How can we better prepare students for what is expected of them in college? How can we help ensure that they are ready for successful and useful assessment testing?

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?

Registration Fee: $345.00

Tuesday, October 7 ~ 3:00-4:30 (Eastern)
With diminishing resources and a new generation of students who have high expectations for information being available 24/7, colleges need to identify and implement an extensive menu of online student support services. In addition to providing much-needed support to our students, online services assist faculty and staff with many things such as reducing repetitive inquiries, preparing students ahead of time for counseling and advising appointments, and providing detailed and consistent information.

Investigating The Drunken Hook-Up: Policy Development Concerning Sexual Assault, Incapacitation & Risk Management
Registration Fee: $345.00

Tuesday, October 7 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)
The pressure is on college campuses to get tough on sexual violence. However, it is now more important to get policy right than it is to get tough. Campuses are feeling the heat in the form of the first report of the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault, which encouraged men to respect women. This took the form of a highly publicized public service announcement featuring Benicio Del Toro, Dulé Hill, Steve Carrell, Daniel Craig, Seth Meyers, Vice President Biden, and President Obama. Additionally, the Office for Civil Rights released 53 more pages on how to comply with Title IX, and yet, Brett Sokolow, president and CEO of The NCHERM Group, thinks many campuses can do better when dealing with drunken hook-ups between students.

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.

Understanding ADA Compliance, Accommodations & Resources: Fast Facts For Faculty

Registration Fee: $345.00

Wednesday, October 15 ~ 3:00-4:30pm (Eastern)
There are many rules, regulations, legislation, and policies that affect higher education. Whether they are long-standing or brand-new, the laws that govern faculty and students can be very confusing. However complex, it is crucially important for faculty to understand the basics in order to support student success as well as ensure compliance. Working within the parameters of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is no different.

Statistics show that retention in online classes is a challenge and attrition is typically higher than classroom-based courses. Although online classes are similar to face-to-face courses, there are three distinct areas where they differ: Structure, Classroom Participation, and Collaboration. Thus, in order to increase retention and performance in online classes, students need to adapt and online professors must learn to innovate and evolve to meet their students’ needs.

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.

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.

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?

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.

This webinar will review the academic program life cycle and the quality-based principles that underlie program innovation policy and practice. We will take a close look at an integrative and evidence-based approach to academic and enrollment planning. Two conceptual frameworks will be presented for program innovation: one for the introduction of new programs, and one for the renewal of existing programs. In addition, a practical model consisting of six program planning filters will be presented and described in its application for ensuring relevance of academic programs to the needs of students, as well as for exercising “strategic dexterity” in decision-making to enhance responsiveness and competitiveness.
