WEBINARS RECOMENDADOS:

  • Tutoring Gen Z: How Generational Differences Impact Teaching & Learning
    mayo 7, 2019
    5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
    https://www.innovativeeducators.org/products/tutoring-gen-z-how-generational-differences-impact-teaching-learning

    In higher education, there has been a growing awareness of how generational differences among faculty, staff and students impact the teaching and learning environment. First the Millennials, and now the Gen Zers, have changed the climate in higher education, as institutions have attempted to engage with these students and adapt to their needs. Let’s face it: different generations have different expectations surrounding how we teach and how we learn. Perhaps where these expectations have manifested more than in any other area of the institution is in the learning center.

    The learning center is in a unique position to reconcile the differing expectations between faculty and students. As Generation Z brings their distinct needs, desires and skills into our centers, it is increasingly our job to bridge this divide. In order to bridge this divide, we must consider ways that we outreach and connect with Generation Z students so that we ensure they understand the services and programs offered to enhance their academic performance. We must be mindful of the learning preferences and approaches of this generation, so that our practices meet them where they are at, and help them grow as independent learners. And finally, we must consider our Generation Z peer tutor workforce; how do we ensure that they receive meaningful training and that they find the tutoring center to be a positive place to work?

  • Assessing Social Media’s Impact On Mental Health: How To Intervene & Support Struggling Students
    mayo 9, 2019
    3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
    https://www.innovativeeducators.org/products/assessing-social-media-s-impact-on-mental-health-how-to-intervene-support-struggling-students

    Technology always precipitates unintended and undesirable consequences. The evidence is mounting that over-involvement with social media interferes with critical thinking and problem-solving skills, including those needed to resolve interpersonal as well as intrapersonal conflict. The implications and consequences of this obsessive behavior for college students are becoming more pronounced as more this issue continues to be researched by a growing number of investigators.

    In this applications-oriented webinar, participants will explore the latest research concerning the emerging connection between over involvement with social media and college students’ emotional and mental health and how to effectively intervene with affected students in order to help them be more successful in college, after college, and in life in general. The focus will be on evidence-based best practices as they relate to assisting students to manage and overcome the problems associated with this counterproductive behavior.

  • Evaluating Tutors: Designing Meaningful Assessments & Observation Methods
    mayo 10, 2019
    3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
    https://www.innovativeeducators.org/products/evaluating-tutors-designing-meaningful-assessments-observation-methods

    While robust Tutor and SI Training are essential to successful academic support programs, professionals must insure that the lessons of training are being followed and put in place. This webinar looks at how to create effective exit surveys, peer and professional observations, and a tutor self-assessment/reapplication tool that explores tutor effectiveness as perceived by students, professional staff, and the tutors themselves.

  • Practical Application Of Student Success Theory: How To Retain First-Year Students & Help Them Navigate Challenges
    mayo 15, 2019
    5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
    https://www.innovativeeducators.org/products/practical-application-of-student-success-theory-how-to-retain-first-year-students-help-them-navigate-challenges

    Scholars identify a set of educational theories and practices that researchers have shown to have a significant impact on student success and retention. These are called “High Impact Practices” or “Best Practices.” For example, first-year experience courses and programs are considered a best practice aimed at helping students navigate the challenges of transitioning from high school to college.

    While many of these courses and programs have proven effective, there is no “one size fits all” approach for students. Rather, there is a wide variety of mediating factors that contribute to individual students’ academic success and achievement during the college years. These factors have the potential to shape both academic and social engagement and mediate how students cope with challenges. Indeed, student success is influenced as much by certain attitudes and predispositions as by particular skill sets and levels of preparedness. So, while there are patterned variables that do influence success, practitioners argue that a student’s ability to be successful can be highly idiosyncratic and individualized. Accepting this premise, how do institutions create and promote a climate that will attend to individuals’ unique predispositions and leverage this insight to help students navigate challenges? This webinar will examine theories related to those behaviors, personality traits, habits, and attitudes that mediate student success and consider ways in which to bring these theories into day-to-day interactions with students.

  • 2-Part Webinar Series: Advising For Student Success - Part II
    mayo 16, 2019
    3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
    https://www.innovativeeducators.org/products/advising-for-student-success-2-part-webinar-series

    Advanced technologies are moving academic advising into the virtual world, where students can have access to the guidance they need anytime and anywhere. As financial resources have become more scarce at many institutions at the same time demands have become more acute, online advising has become more pervasive. Online advising systems offer faculty, staff and other professionals a way to do more with less while increasing retention and enhancing completion rates. The evidence is clear: when done appropriately, online advising can provide colleges and universities with significant benefits in some key areas.

    Please join us for an evidence-based, interactive, hands-on webinar that will provide participants with the competencies they need to effectively engage in academic advising with all students, irrespective of their personal and cultural characteristics. Different student populations have different needs and preferences when it comes to their expectations regarding the advising process; it is important that advisors be able to recognize where their students are coming from and respond in a way that facilitates growth and development along a number of relevant dimensions. This webinar will help advisors enhance their ability to better serve all students and get more of them to the finish line.

  • Advising Diverse Populations: How To Be Inclusive Using Appreciative Advising

  • Assessment Processes For Learning Assistance Programs: How To Plan For Evaluation & Improvement
    mayo 21, 2019
    3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
    https://www.innovativeeducators.org/products/assessment-processes-for-learning-assistance-programs-how-to-plan-for-evaluation-improvement

    Those of us who provide and manage learning assistance services do so much to help students succeed in higher education. We tutor and we offer workshops on how to read college textbooks and write properly documented research papers. We organize regular study groups and arrange test review sessions. We supervise and mentor numerous student workers, and we mentor each other. We do so much. In addition to these uses of our time, we also want to find out if our efforts are working, if we are successfully helping students become successful. And there are also outside pressures wanting to know those same things. But where do we find the time to evaluate all of our varied efforts? What evaluation methods are most effective at revealing our successes – and perhaps also letting us know how we could do even better?

    During the webinar, we will review a range of learning assistance services that are commonly offered (e.g., one-on-one tutoring, structured review groups such as Supplemental Instruction, workshops) and note what kinds of processes are available for evaluating the effectiveness of such programs. We will consider both quantitative and qualitative methodologies and also look at established standards of excellence. Also, recognizing the time demands of program assessment, we will discuss how to schedule evaluation activities over the course of two or more years. The goal is to establish a practical and ongoing path toward program evaluation and improvement – a path that is thorough without being overwhelming.
