Online Courses

COE is excited to announce that online courses for the general community are now available. Below are courses that will be each 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. Please note that registration closes one week prior to the start date and there is a $100 fee for cancellation. For further information, please contact Angelica Vialpando at (angelica.vialpando@coenet.org).

(February 18-27, 2019) Working with Diverse Populations. This course provides an overview of sociocultural identity, with an emphasis on how identity impacts access and success programs. Issues of sociocultural identity have been shown to impact educational outcomes. As such, it is imperative for access and success professionals to be aware of the dynamic between identity and the student experience. This course will describe various sociocultural identity development models, frameworks for applying cultural competence to practice, and systems of privilege and oppression at the societal, institutional, group, and individual levels. A special focus will be placed on how various sociocultural identities intersect and impact the educational experience of students from low-income, first-generation college going, and other underrepresented backgrounds.

(March 11-20, 2019) Creating a Policy and Procedure Manual. Policies and procedures are designed to influence and determine 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 day-to-day operations of the organization. Together, policies and procedures ensure that a point of view held by the program and it is translated into steps that result in an outcome desired by the program and institution/agency. In this course, programs will receive a better understanding on how to create policy and procedures that make sense for their program.

(April 15-26, 2019) Examining a Bridge Program for your SSS Program. Student Support Services programs have outcomes that their students enroll and graduate from a collegiate setting. Bridging programs are an excellent way to have your students start off right but how does that look like? This course will review the models for collegiate success programs. Partnerships will be discussed and regulations around bridging will be examined. Participants should walk away with ways to enhance current bridge model or critically think about including a bridge program.

(April 29-May 8, 2019) 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 the professional) plan appropriate careers. It will provide the students with an understanding of career development and occupational lifestyle planning.

(May 13-22, 2019) Managing Your Workload to Meet Your Program Objectives. This workshop will investigate effective strategies that projects can utilize to manage staff workloads and talents to meet project objectives. Workshop participants will discuss models for staff workloads including Management by Objectives and case management structures. The group will also discuss use of staff strengths to form a complementary team. Workshop participants will gain best practice methods by participating in a case study activity, sharing their projects with other TRIO professionals.
