WEBINARS RECOMENDADOS:

  • Writing & Measuring The Effectiveness Of Student Learning Outcomes For Student Affairs
    julio 9, 2019
    5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
    https://www.innovativeeducators.org/products/writing-measuring-the-effectiveness-of-student-learning-outcomes-for-student-affairs-719

    Measuring what students are learning in co-curricular, extra-curricular and support programs is now a part of student affairs professionals’ reporting protocol. Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) are a critical aspect of identifying and measuring student learning both in and out of the classroom. Additionally, SLOs are a requirement by most, if not all, accreditation agencies.

    Where do you start? How do you write an effective Student Learning Outcome? How do you actually measure the SLO? What do you do with the data that is extracted from assessing an SLO? Examples of well-written and poorly written SLOs will be reviewed in this webinar. Participants will also receive an overview of appropriate measurement tools as well as examples of how SLO data has been used for change, including the use of a rubric. All are encouraged to bring current SLOs and their assessments to this webinar for feedback and exchange of ideas.

  • Motivating & Mentoring Student Employees Through Positive Support, Engagement Strategies & Connection To Real-Life Goals
    julio 10, 2019
    5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
    https://www.innovativeeducators.org/products/motivating-mentoring-student-employees-through-positive-support-engagement-strategies-connection-to-real-life-goals-719

    This webinar will examine the problems we all seem to have with motivating and retaining student employees, especially those who are traditional-aged and who may or may not have worked professionally before. Our past practices of enforcing policies, and enacting consequences for breaking them, simply doesn’t work. Instead, these adults are engaged and motivated by positive support and a strong sense of how their efforts serve both their life goals and their desire to be of service to fellow students. We will look at ways to create expectations through goal setting facilitated by the employee, how to offer consistent feedback loops without burning out the supervisor, how to connect their work in your department to their career goals after graduation, and how supervisors can learn to mentor rather than just manage.

  • Increasing Transfer Student Retention: Challenges, Interventions & Programming
    julio 11, 2019
    3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
    https://www.innovativeeducators.org/products/increasing-transfer-student-retention-challenges-interventions-programming-719

    More than 60% of college students graduate with transfer credits, many entering college with early enrollment credit earned in high school, and tens of thousands transferring credits from two and four-year colleges. It is critical to develop institutional strategies to ease the transfer process and to ensure that students are prepared through appropriate advising. At the same time, pressure on higher education professionals to improve retention rates and ensure that graduates are ready for the labor market has increased. This webinar will highlight a model for student success that focuses on three critical stages of the transfer experience (preparation, transition, progression), presenting specific strategies to enhance advising and recommendations for programming to improve transfer success.

  • Resilience Training & Assessment: Cultivating Self-Compassion & Growth Mindset - Part I
    julio 11, 2019

    https://www.innovativeeducators.org/products/resilience-training-assessment-cultivating-grit-growth-mindset-2-part-workshop-719

    Participants will leave with 1) a definition of self-compassion, compassion, growth mindset, and resilience, 2) an understanding of how all of those skill sets can be measured, and 3) ideas for how to cultivate those skill sets on their campuses.

  • Sophomore Retention: Challenges, Programming & Assessment
    julio 16, 2019
    5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
    https://www.innovativeeducators.org/products/sophomore-retention-challenges-programming-assessment-719

    Retention beyond the first year is an important focus of student success efforts. Sophomore students present unique opportunities for campuses interested in enhancing their approaches to supporting students across the academic lifecycle. This webinar focuses on how retention theory applies to sophomores and on effective ways to organize and deliver effective sophomore retention programs. Participants will gain insights into how to add a sophomore emphasis to their student success efforts.

  • Part I - Title IX Certification: Level I Training For Coordinators, Responsible Employees & Hearing Boards
    julio 17, 2019
    3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
    https://www.innovativeeducators.org/products/title-ix-certification-level-i-training-for-coordinators-responsible-employees-hearing-boards-719

    During this three-part webinar series, the presenter will review the training requirements for Title IX Coordinators, Responsible Employees, and Hearing Boards, which will include, but not be limited to reporting requirements, confidentiality, grievance procedure(s), roles and responsibilities, resources, etc. Since all institutions who receive federal funding must comply with Title IX, it is critical that their Title IX Coordinators, Responsible Employees, and Hearing Boards know how to promptly and effectively respond to allegations of Title IX violations. Institutions must ensure that the rights of complainant’s and respondents are protected and that their grievance procedures are prompt and equitable and have been properly implemented.

  • Train Your Front Office Staff To Work Effectively With Demanding Faculty & Staff
    julio 17, 2019
    5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
    https://www.innovativeeducators.org/products/train-your-front-office-staff-to-work-effectively-with-demanding-faculty-staff-719

    It is not unusual for front office workers to have to deal with demanding customers and sometimes with customers who are angry or upset. These conflicts can be especially difficult if the customer is also a college staff person or faculty member. Whether real or perceived, the personal threat or pressure in these instances can be much more intense for the office worker since it involves an internal constituent. This webinar will suggest ways that supervisors can train staff to deal with these circumstances and how to develop policy and procedures that help to minimize their occurrence. Topics will include techniques for recovering a situation from conflict, non-confrontational methods for dealing with power struggles, building a culture of team support to deflect bullying, customer service policy examples, and how and when to step in to neutralize interactions.

  • Advising International Students: Implementing Programs To Enhance Retention-To-Graduation Rates
    julio 18, 2019
    3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
    https://www.innovativeeducators.org/products/advising-international-students-implementing-programs-to-enhance-retention-to-graduation-rates

    International students constitute an important campus population. Trends indicate a need for additional support for international students attending postsecondary institutions in the United States. Their advising needs, however, are qualitatively different from their domestic counterparts. The quality of academic advising that students receive has been strongly linked to student persistence and this is especially true for international students who face unique challenges matriculating on American campuses. Recognizing the distinct contribution of international students to the learning environment, this webinar will focus on strategies and programs designed to maximize international students’ success.

    We'll explore evidence-based programs and advising initiatives designed to enhance international student persistence to graduation; concrete recommendations will be presented together with how these best practices can be successfully implemented in a variety of higher education environments. Equal emphasis will be placed on helping both the individual international student as well as the institution achieve their mutually-complementary objective: retention-to-graduation.

  • 2-Part Webinar Series: Learning Centers - Part I
    julio 25, 2019
    3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
    https://www.innovativeeducators.org/products/learning-centers-2-part-webinar-series

    Scholars identify a set of educational practices that research has shown to have a significant impact on student success and retention. These are called “High Impact Practices” or “Best Practices.” Indeed, it is widely known that Learning Centers are one of those “Best Practices.” Almost every college and university has some type of learning assistance or academic support on their campuses. At the same time though, there is no “one size fits all” approach for delivering those programs and services. This reality is complicated by the fact that, there is, “no robust shared theoretical framework unique to the field” of learning assistance (Chung & Higbee, 2005). How, then, do practitioners determine what programs and services to deliver in their learning centers? This webinar offers tried and true best practices for learning centers from a thirty year veteran in the field who is both a researcher and practitioner.

  • Advising Undecided Students: Personalized Services To Support The Decision-Making Process
    julio 30, 2019
    3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
    https://www.innovativeeducators.org/products/advising-undecided-students-personalized-services-to-support-the-decision-making-process

    In this interactive webinar, we will explore the characteristics of undecided (undeclared/open/exploring) college students, discuss the advising challenges unique to this population as well as how to overcome them, and provide evidence-based best practices for helping these students with the decision-making process and thus retaining them to graduation. We will also explain the various roles that all members of the campus community can play in responding to the advising needs of undecided students. Moreover, we'll examine successful programs and initiatives from across the nation that are currently being used to respond effectively and cost-efficiently to the advising needs of undecided students – 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 students, achieve their mutually-complementary objective: graduation and job placement.
