Virtual Educational Session Guidelines

Educational sessions are 60-minute virtual interactive sessions with time dedicated for dialogue to consider application of knowledge and implications for our work addressing student success.

Educational sessions must include the following:

  • Situate the issue within the larger context of higher education, a specialized field/industry, or national/global trends, including the global pandemic, civil unrest, and racial injustice
  • Describe the program, intervention, initiative, or idea that addresses the issue and provide evidence of its potential or demonstrated effectiveness
  • Highlight implications for student success (specifically in relation to retention, timely degree completion, and/or well-being) or implications for professional development and enrichment

Other considerations that may strengthen your submission:

  • Pose a question or situate the topic and provide information, insights and/or ideas on an emerging trend, issue, or topic to engage participants in conversation
  • Explore how we might work differently to maximize student services and experiences while considering student pressures and issues
  • Create conversation space to discuss new ideas, practices, and possibilities for our work in student retention, degree completion and well-being
  • Provide participants with professional and career development
  • Provide relevant knowledge and “take-away” applications for participants
