Hit the Ground RunningCouncil for Opportunity in Education's Orientation and Professional Development Program for College Access and Success Professionals

New to college access and success? Or, do you need a refresher? COE's Onboarding Orientation and Professional Development is designed to bring you quickly up to speed with three modes of learning. First, a one-on-one conversation to identify pressing program and professional development needs. Second, attend a full-day on-site, in-person workshop to connect to leader experts from other programs. Finally, get access to online learning modules to enable a review of the history, resources, regulations and effective strategies to do the job competently and successfully. The online learning can begin immediately.

Online Courses

Course will be accessed through the platform CourseSites. After registering, you will be given instructions on how to enter into the CourseSites platform three to four days before the start date. This course does not have any live sessions but this is not self-pace. You will be assigned tasks, assignments and post discussions that will be due on specific dates within the 10 days.

(February 14-23) 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 program students how any dilemma or decision can be approached through an ethical framework. Participants will articulate and use individual ethical principles and relevant professional ethical standards to enhance personal and professional development. One module of the course will focus on facilitating civil discourse. Complete form Document is available for download (.pdf) and send to Angelica at (angelica.vialpando@coenet.org).

(March 7-16) Managing Your Workload to Meet Your Program Objectives. This course will investigate effective strategies that projects can utilize to manage staff workloads and talents to meet project objectives. Course participants will discuss models for staffing including Management by Objective and Case Management Structures. The group will delve into evaluation tools that allow for program improvement, no more doing it because it’s always been done that way!
