    Supporting Academically At-Risk Adult Students in an Online Learning Environment

    Jay Keehn, Nikki Marks

    Supporting Academically At-Risk Adult Students in an Online Learning Environment

    The adult student faces significant challenges toward achieving their goal of successful degree completion. They have multiple family obligations, several employment responsibilities, financial stress, academic rust, a lack of proper resources, and a weakened sense of technology savviness. Thus, support for these students must be tailored accordingly. Employing the philosophical foundation of intrusive advising, this presentation will further examine appropriate advising strategies to support adult students on academic probation in an online learning environment.

    Invigorating a Sense of Belonging in Year One: Proven Recruitment and Engagement Approaches

    Maximizing student enrollment with retention-centered engagement activities is a known opportunity among colleges and universities. The influence of non-academic factors on retention, completion, and satisfaction creates an opportunity to re-imagine and re-define structural complexities, policies, and practices that impact outreach. While the diverse populations that mark community colleges offer unique challenges, they also provide a pathway to revisit recruitment techniques and branding strategies. The presenters will review viable engagement procedures and approaches instituted by one Northern Virginia Community College campus that has made an indelible impact for students in year one.

    Today's students are unlike any other peer group due to the advances in technology and changes in risk-taking behavior. These shifts have created a sense of invincibility for students where they are unable to differentiate the actions they make online from the physical world.

    Culture Change: Championing Free Speech, Not Just Managing It

    Free speech movements across higher education are expected to increase with the upcoming presidential elections in 2020. The Association of American Colleges and Universities "Call to Action" stressed higher education's responsibility to start civil discourse conversations, impacting free speech. East Carolina University made a significant change in 2016 that focused on turning free speech from conflict into conversation. That investment has led the university to redevelop policies, practices, and culture that now champions rather than manages free speech.

    Speak Now, Or Forever Hold Your Peace: Where To Start Once You’ve Decided To Revamp Your Speech Policies

    College and university campuses are increasingly the focus of free speech imbroglios and the defendants in lawsuits alleging First Amendment violations. If your institution has not already decided to review and revamp its free speech policies, chances are that it soon will. Student affairs professionals play an integral role in this process. This session, led by free speech experts from the University of California, will address: where to start, whom to include in the process, and how to address myriad issues in light of the changing social and legal landscape.

FAQ

  • What is the Virtual Ticket?

    The Virtual Ticket provides online access to portions of the NASPA Annual Conference. The Virtual Ticket allows more of the NASPA community to experience the Annual Conference and use the high-quality program presented in their professional development throughout the year. The Virtual Ticket includes two components: a live stream of our general session room, and OnDemand educational sessions. The Virtual Ticket is available to those who are attending the conference in Austin and those who are unable to attend.

  • How long will I have access to the OnDemand sessions?

    Those registering for the Fast Pass presentation will have access to stream the recordings online until August 2020. Season and Works registrants will have access to stream the recorded sessions online until March 2021. Additionally, registrants for the Season and Works packages will have the ability to download sessions to save to their local computer.

  • Does the OnDemand session include video and audio?

    Approximately 25 of the OnDemand sessions will include video of the presenter conducting their presentation (those that are also live streamed). The remaining presentations will be audio over PowerPoint.

  • Do you provide a certificate for viewing a session?

    The registered attendee can receive a certificate of participation if they have viewed more than 60% of the session. Certificates are available upon request and can only be issued in the name of the registered participant. Virtual Ticket registrations are not transferable.

  • Can I share my login with my colleagues?

    We encourage you to view the sessions as a team to support professional development of student affairs professionals on your campus. However, your registration provides you with a single log-in (the Season and Works packages give you the option of adding one additional login to your registration). The platform where the sessions are hosted can detect and will prevent simultaneous logins. In addition, certificates of participation can only be issued to the registered participant and are not transferable. Therefore, sharing the login will prevent the system from keeping an accurate record of your individual participation.
