Supporting Students … Digitally!
February 22 @ 10:00 am - 10:45 am
This event is part of our Digital Learning Day Program.
Matt Mooney, @Prof_Mooney, History Professor, Santa Barbara Community College
At the end of every semester I ask my students to write a short paragraph of advice to next semester’s students. They discuss the one or two most important things that enabled them to succeed in the course. I choose the most insightful of these responses and collect them together in a Padlet. New students review this collection of advice as their very first assignment in the new semester. After introducing themselves to their classmates via the Canvas discussion forum, the new students discuss the most insightful piece of advice passed along from last semester’s students. Each student then responds to at least one classmate with advice the classmate “did not include in his or her Personal Introduction.” In other words, he or she will offer their classmate additional ideas from last semester’s students.
Javier Villaseñor, Counselor, Long Beach City College
Counselors provide invaluable support to students, but not just for students who are on campus. This presentation will demonstrate how counselors are interacting with students online using Cranium Café, powered by ConexEd, a FERPA and ADA compliant online counseling platform available at no cost to OEI consortium colleges and at a discounted rate for all CCCs.
Duration: 45 minutes
Registration required. If you cannot attend the live session, an archive will be available to registered participants one week after the scheduled live event.
