Dedicated to Professional Development

Proposed Sessions


What your role in recruiting and retaining students with disabilities?

Students with disabilities represented nearly 11 percent of all postsecondary students in 2008 (Higher Education, 2009). This is an increase from 9 percent in 2000 (Wolanin, & Steele, 2004). Along with the increase in the number of students with disabilities entering higher education comes an increasing responsibility for higher education professionals to understand the rights as well as the responsibilities of students with disabilities.

During this workshop, the following questions will be considered:
What is your role in recruiting and admitting students with disabilities? What questions can I ask a students with a disability? What do I do if a student discloses their disability? What is my role in balancing the needs of the institution with the rights of students with disabilities?

We will also explore questions and scenarios you have, allowing us to learn from each other.

Higher Education Trials & Tribulations

Have you ever thought you should write a book about what happened in your offices, because no one would believe it. You will be placed in groups and each group will be given several scenarios that have come across our desks as Higher Ed professionals from real life situations to discuss. As a group you will have five minutes to discuss each scenario which will include “Can you believe it moments” you will then be asked to provide your outcomes while taking in consideration your campus’s best practices and politics for handling issues. When we share our thoughts and processes with open dialogue we can learn from each other and come away hopefully better prepared to handle the next trial or tribulation.

Stress & Time Management

This presentation will discuss time management strategies that will help attendees 'multiply' their time and manage their time more efficiently. Stress management will also be discussed so that attendees can self-reflect on how they experience stress and how stress may impact their motivation, efficiency, and sleep. Finally, several time management apps will also be discussed to offer some modern tools to assist with time management.
