Description:
At some point in a student’s career at CSU, a student may need to take some time away from their studies: they may need to take a Planned Leave from school. This session will cover the benefits and issues of this newly approved status for fall 2013 that is designed to help students more easily and effectively take one semester away from their CSU studies and successfully return. Some of the issues new status can cause are with scholarship renewal, in-state residency classification, NCAA athletic eligibility, and international student Visa’s. We will also explore why this new status can help the department to continue to communicate with these students while they are on leave and felicitate a seamless return to CSU after one semester away.
Goals and Target Audience:
Undergraduate advisors, counselors, professors and all individuals that advise undergraduate students in a formal or informal setting.

Session Title:
Effective Online Discussion Facilitation
Presenters:
Leann Kaiser
Category:
Other
Date:
Monday, January 14th 2013
Start Time:
11:00 AM
Session Length:
50 Minutes
Room:
213-15 LSC
Description:
During this session information will be presented that is applicable in nature. Although online education is not new, research and discussions continue to be ongoing regarding best practices, and how those practices differ depending on the learner population and needs. In many online courses interaction through discussion with both the facilitator and fellow classmates is often a key aspect in course design. If this is put forth as a major learning tool, course designers and facilitators need to have current knowledge of how to best guide these discussions in order to help the students reach stated learning outcomes. In addition, facilitating discussion in an online setting is quite different from facilitating face to face, and understanding this can be a key to successful facilitation.
Goals and Target Audience:
Two main outcomes will be emphasized in this session. First, best practices will be shared that attendees can use in their own online discussion design or facilitation. Second, the content presented in the session will help attendees to understand what is known regarding effective discussion facilitation and the various positive course outcomes stemming from such discussions (including building class community, learner engagement, and learning transfer). This session is appropriate for those who work in some capacity in an online environment in which discussions are a course element. Discussion may either be a central focus or just one aspect of the overall course. Educators who facilitate discussions could benefit from this session, as well as those who design online courses and/or work in faculty development to improve online teaching practices.
