Online Courses

COE is excited to announce that online courses for the general community are now available. Below are seven courses that will be each be taught over a 10-day period. These topics were chosen based on the needs identified for new college access and success professionals. Cost is $500 for Institutional Members and $800 for Non-Members per course. For further information, please contact Angelica Vialpando at (angelica.vialpando@coenet.org).

(November 27- December 6, 2017) Examining Bridging Programs. Upward Bound and Student Support Services programs must meet expectations that their students enroll and graduate from a collegiate setting. Bridging programs are an excellent way to provide the right start for your students, but what does that look like? This course will review the models for both pre-college and college programs. Partnerships will be discussed and regulations around bridging will be examined. Participants should walk away with ways to enhance current bridge models or critically consider including a bridge program.

(January 8-17, 2018) Career Counseling. The aim of this course is to introduce access and success professionals to the sub-specialty of career, vocational and lifestyle counseling. The course will focus on understanding the factors that influence vocational choice and explore how psychological knowledge can be used to help students (as well as professionals) plan appropriate careers. It will provide participants with an understanding of career development and occupational lifestyle planning.

(January 22-31, 2018) Professional Ethics in an Access and Success Program. This course is designed to provide an overview of ethical issues in higher education. Participants will discover through workplace examples and case studies how any dilemma or decision can be approached through an ethical framework. Participants will articulate and demonstrate the use of individual ethical principles and relevant professional ethical standards to enhance personal and professional development.

(February 5-14, 2018) Creating a Policy and Procedures Manual. Policies and procedures are designed to govern decisions, actions, and activities that take place within the boundaries of a program. Procedures are the specific methods employed to express policies in action in the day-to-day operations of the organization. Together, policies and procedures ensure that a point of view held by the program is translated into steps that result in an outcome desired by the program and institution/agency. In this course, participants will receive a better understanding on how to create policy and procedures that make sense for their program.

(February 19-28, 2018) Family Involvement. Parents and families have the most direct and lasting impact on children’s learning. When parents are involved, students achieve more, demonstrate more positive attitudes and behaviors, and feel more comfortable. Families are crucial partners to the TRIO community. With all the conflicting priorities competing for the time of families, how do we get parents involved in our programs? This class focuses on techniques to promote parent involvement using telephone conversations, family groups, newsletters, notes, and workshops, teaching families how to ask for help, and volunteering — all strategies designed to develop relationships of mutual trust with the families we serve.

Webinars

The Council for Opportunity in Education (COE) is exploring innovative and economical ways to bring professional development training to the comfort of your office. We have begun a series of trainings that involve participation through a combination of web-based presentations and conference calls called Webinars. These low-cost trainings (no travel, lodging, or meal costs) will enable program staff to receive high quality professional development and remain in their office to provide services to their participants with minimal interruption. Space is limited. Register early!

NOTE — For any webinars for which there is a cost, payment must be made by credit card. No purchase orders will be accepted, even if your registration is processed successfully.

Onboard

Hit the Ground RunningNew to college access and success? COE's Onboarding Orientation and Professional Development is designed to bring you quickly up to speed in three modes of learning. First, a one-on-one conversation with a supervisor identifies pressing professional development needs. Second, an on-site, in-person workshop affords the opportunity to connect to leader experts from other programs. Finally, the learning modules enable practitioners to review the history, resources, regulations and effective strategies to do their job competently and successfully.
