    https://www.innovativeeducators.org/products/developing-providing-integrated-student-services-creating-the-one-stop-shop-for-students-619

    This session will provide an overview of how integrated student services, also known as the One-Stop Shop, can provide your college or university with a seamless delivery of student services, as well as a collaborative work environment for your staff. The presenter will discuss student services integration across several dimensions including virtual, physical, and organizational integration. By deconstructing operational silos, streamlining processes, and cross-training staff, operational efficiencies can be gained and students can be provided with holistic counseling experiences.

    The presenter will discuss the One-Stop Shop approach to service, which has been successful for many institutions, and will highlight the University of Minnesota’s successful One-Stop Student Services Office. Participants will leave with a thorough understanding of various approaches to creating a One-Stop Shop on their campus and will be provided with several handouts including: job descriptions, organizational chart, and a training matrix.

  • 2-Part Webinar Series: Advising Online - Part II
    June 11, 2019
    5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
    https://www.innovativeeducators.org/products/advising-online-2-part-webinar-series

    Advanced technologies are moving academic advising into the virtual world, where students have access to the guidance they need anytime and anywhere. Moving to this Brave New World, however, presents several challenges for advisors who have traditionally employed in-person conferences as their primary delivery method. As financial resources have become more scarce at many institutions at the same time demands have become more acute, online advising has become much more pervasive. In a very real sense, online advising systems offer faculty, staff and other professionals a way to do more with less while increasing retention and enhancing completion rates. But this does not necessarily mean that face-to-face advising should be abandoned entirely. A hybrid approach offers the best of both worlds. When implemented conscientiously and correctly, it can create a synergy that is both high tech and high touch.

    This webinar will cover the essential components of a successful academic advising program, focusing on how those components can be integrated in a way that accentuates the advantages of both face-to-face and virtual advising. The goal is to develop and maintain an advising relationship using an online platform that has all the features of a face-to-face conference. A primary focus will be on making the transition from face-to-face to a hybrid model, which utilizes both approaches to deliver the most successful experience possible for the student. Opportunities for participant involvement through the use of case studies and real-time feedback via chat will also be used to enhance the learning experience.

  • 3-Part Webinar Series: Advising Specific Student Populations - Part I
    June 19, 2019
    3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
    https://www.innovativeeducators.org/products/advising-specific-student-populations-3-part-webinar-series

    In this interactive webinar, we will explore the characteristics of first-generation college students from a variety of different perspectives, discuss the advising challenges inherent to this population as well as how to overcome them and provide evidence-based best practices for retaining these students to graduation. We will explain the various roles that all members of the campus community can play in responding to the advising needs of first-generation students. We will also examine successful programs and initiatives from across the nation that are currently being used to effectively and cost-efficiently meet their advising needs – and how these programs and initiatives can be adapted to a variety of higher education environments. Equal emphasis will be placed on helping both institutions, as well as individual first-generation students, achieve their mutually-complementary objective: graduation and job placement.

  • Advising First-Generation Students & Their Sub-Populations: How To Personalize Your Services

  • Retention Modeling: Using Data To Customize Interventions & Change Success Trajectory
    June 25, 2019
    5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
    https://www.innovativeeducators.org/products/retention-modeling-using-data-to-customize-interventions-change-success-trajectory-619

    Ever-tightening resources have become the reality for most institutions. Campuses have to figure out how to effectively utilize their assets. Retention Modeling is an effective way of using the data we gather from students through the admissions and enrollment processes, along with the survey data identifying psycho-social factors, which the literature suggests have predictive value. The research strongly implies that targeted early intervention improves student success outcomes for these students. This webinar will guide participants through the process of developing a model, implementing a data-driven intervention, and assessing that intervention. Through analyzing the data, campuses can identify students more likely to achieve lower levels of academic success and direct customized, early interventions designed to change their success trajectory.
