NASPA
2020 NASPA Annual Conference

Extended Learning Sessions

We recognize that some topics are not able to be explored in a traditionally 50-minute concurrent session, and NASPA will offer several extended sessions at this year’s Annual Conference. The 2019 CLC is working hard on developing these sessions and registration will open October 2, 2018.

These two-hour extended workshops will provide participants with opportunities to critically engage with colleagues and experts in on a variety of topics and identify strategic collaborative approaches for addressing current and emerging challenges in the work of student affairs and services. Past extended sessions have included topics for graduate preparation faculty, chief diversity officers, vice presidents, and practitioners who work in equity and inclusion. Most sessions are included with your 2019 NASPA Annual Conference registration and may require participants to register separately. Extended sessions will take place on Monday, March 11th and Tuesday, March 12th.

    Legislation in Higher Education: A Mock Senate Simulation

    ELS 1

    Understanding issues facing higher education and the role our civic processes play in navigating those issues is an important step in developing civic-minded campuses and professionals. Learn about the legislative process and some of those key issues by participating in a mock senate simulation as a witness delivering testimony before the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, & Pensions. This character-playing mock senate simulation will enable you to research, craft, and deliver compelling testimony before a demanding senate committee and face challenging questioning and scrutiny from senators. This session is open to anyone interested in experiencing the legislative process.

    Delivering on the Promise

    Delivering on the Promise

    ELS 3

    There is a growing sense of dissatisfaction with higher education’s ability to deliver skills that employers desire. There is also increasing stress and anxiety among students, staff, and faculty about how well students are situated for the future. Neuroscience provides us with evidence that the skill sets employers desire require collaborative in-class and out-of-class facilitation along with intentional evaluation. Presenter will help members explore and articulate the skill sets their constituents value, identify the opportunities on their campuses where these skill sets can be intentionally and systematically facilitated, and describe the ways in which they will know these outcomes will be realized upon graduation.

    First Step to First-Gen Success: Know Your Students

    ELS4b

    Each year first-generation college students take a leap into the world of higher education, representing between 22-77% of a campus population. But do we really know who first-generation college students on our campuses are and what they may need from us? Join this session to discuss the pros and cons of different first-gen definitions, explore first-gen data collection from two research projects (quantitative and qualitative), and create an actionable plan for your campus to know and serve first-gen college students better.

    Student affairs professionals are excellent at thinking outside of the box and exhibiting creativity, but aren’t always equipped with the knowledge and skills to launch their ideas. This session is designed to encourage student affairs professionals to be innovative in their practice. Participants will 1) gain tools to assist them in expressing and advocating for their ideas through presentation format and small group activities. 2) learn how to create SMART goals and write proposals to gain buy-in from decision makers through active learning practices, and 3) practice presentation skills through role playing and pair-share activities. All levels of practitioners are welcomed and encouraged to attend. This session is sold out.
