Teaching the old dog new tricks – How to keep your staff motivated in a continuously changing enviro

You’ve probably heard that saying before: you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. But what does it mean? And is it true? This popular old saying means it can be difficult to teach an older person — or animal! — something new. The assumptions behind the saying are that it can be hard for older people to learn new things and that it can be difficult to get someone to try something new if they don’t have any experience with it or have always done something a certain way. In this session, we will discuss strategies and techniques to keep your staff motivated in a continuously changing environment.

Social Media Is Not Going Away

If you can't beat them join them. Every campus can agree there is no one proven method of getting important information and deadlines out to students. The question is no longer, should we get on social media? But rather, what are the most popular social media platforms for our students? Join a roundtable discussion on what your campus is doing on social media or get some tips if you're interested in joining a social media platform.

Our Story: One Schools’ Response to State Authorization Requirements

Federal Regulations - Understanding Your Role in Compliance

Compliance with Federal Regulations has recently become much more complex and involves many offices around campus. Whether or not there is a compliance officer on campus, the Registrar often becomes directly involved with compliance. This session will discuss the role of the Registrar in compliance and will discuss resources for Registrars to utilize regularly to stay current with regulations. Attendees should be prepared to discuss their own experiences and share solutions to common issues.

Collaboration: How You Can Create a More Inclusive Environment for Students with Disabilities

Access for students with disabilities is everyone's responsibility, but sometimes it's difficult to know how that pertains to you. Have you ever wondered what makes a classroom "accessible" or been unsure of how to help a student with a disability?

Join us for a session to examine many aspects of campus life and discuss the potential barriers students with disabilities may face. We will also examine the ties this has to creating a veteran friendly campus. You will leave the session with a better understanding of how to serve students with disabilities, and the foundation of a plan to serve students, promote collaborative community and create an inclusive environment for all.
