Among its compliance requirements, OCR encourages institutions to provide specific training to “Responsible Employees”, those who are likely to be the first to receive complaints of sex discrimination from students. “Responsible Employees” are employees who have the authority to take action to redress sexual violence, a duty of reporting incidents of sexual violence by students to the Title IX Coordinator, and one whom a student could reasonably believe has this authority or duty.

TRAINING OBJECTIVE: The training will provide attendees with guidance and instruction on recognizing and appropriately responding to initial allegations and complaints of sex discrimination, including fair and objective communication that does not discourage victims from reporting. You will understand the necessity of providing care and resources for individuals affected by dating and domestic violence on your campus.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: “Responsible Employees” – Deans of Academic Affairs, Deans of Academic Services, Managers of Student Services, SGA Advisors, Counselors, Public Safety Officers and Security, Athletic Directors, Team Coaches, and Resident Assistants.

High Impact Practices to Develop Higher Order Thinking Webinar 2 hrs Students think that they like being spoon-fed: passively taking notes, randomly guessing on multiple choice tests, and viewing lectures on static PowerPoint slides. They think that easy learning is to open up, swallow some facts, spit them out, and forget about them. Of course, this is not learning at all. And the truth is that it really is not interesting or enjoyable either. Real learning—applying, analyzing, synthesizing, evaluating—is not only enjoyable but increases academic success and persistence. How are you and your team breaking the spoon and stimulating higher-order thinking? How are you contributing to the critical thinking that defines a college experience? This workshop will share easy-to-implement techniques for creating interactive, high-impact experiences for students. These techniques apply to venues in the classroom as well as outside of the classroom.

Live Webinar: Supporting ADA Accommodations Beyond the Classroom 1.5 hrs “Full compliance with all applicable ADA regulations is not just a matter for academic affairs; in fact, student affairs professionals often have more contact with individuals who need accommodations than do their faculty counterparts. As such, it is imperative that everyone responsible for providing student services be knowledgeable of the applicable ADA regulations that inform their day-to-day job responsibilities. But simply knowing the law is not enough – know how to implement the law is equally important.” -- Dr.Aaron W. Hughey

Keeping up with the rules and regulations of ADA can feel overwhelming and tedious at times. And for faculty and instructors, understanding and complying with the federal regulations within the classroom environment can feel confusing and high risk. By examining the academic accommodation process from start to finish, participants will be better equipped to deal with changes in the ADA regulations, findings from the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights, the Department of Justice, court decisions, and best practices. This enhance understanding will lead to the delivery of more cost-effective services, keep the institution in strict compliance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations, and help prevent costly litigation that often ensues when institutions are found to be out of compliance.

Join this training session with expert speaker Dr. Aaron W. Hughey to understand how to more accurately assess current institutional policies and procedures related to ADA compliance in order to ensure adherence to all applicable federal regulations. Not only will this capability help effectively and efficiently meet the needs of individuals on campus with disabilities who need legitimate accommodations in order to take full advantage of the educational opportunities afforded them, it will also decrease the probability of costly litigation expenses incurred by institutions due to lack of compliance. Moreover, having the reputation of being fully ADA-compliant can also positively affect recruitment and retention-to-graduation, which also has positive economic benefits.

Session Highlights:
  • Understand the essential nature of the learning process and how you can best meet a variety of students' learning needs.
  • Explore strategies for enhancing collaboration with key offices on campus.
  • Identify the critical elements for accommodation policies to ensure you are in compliance.
  • Discuss approaches to documenting accommodation requests to ensure efficiency, fairness and legal considerations.
  • Understand the process for determining reasonable accommodations for your students in order to adequately meet valid requests - and how to explain to them when the requests cannot be met.
  • Accurately explain the components of a compliant grievance process to key stakeholders on campus.
  • Relate the changes in law and regulations to classroom instruction and accommodations.
  • Assist students in becoming self-advocates in relation to accommodation requests.
