Pandemic Sophomores – On-Demand Training

Sale price$399.00


Immediate & Long-Term Initiatives for Academic Support & Co-Curricular Engagement

Supporting your incoming sophomores for academic and personal success will require concurrent engagement, academic services, marketing outreach, benchmarking, and assessment planning. It is not too late to affect positive change right now and strategically plan for future sophomore success initiatives.

Our two expert presenters help you level set “what we know now regarding these sophomores” and discuss practical strategies that can be implemented now to help these essentially first-year students engage, persist and succeed on campus.

Help your faculty and staff learn critical assessment skills, continue to embrace ambiguity, and adapt to “pandemic sophomore” needs as you begin the new academic year. You will be able to help them better understand and work with these students so they can implement sustained engagement and fill in the gaps that could derail their efforts both in and out of the classroom. Ensure their personal wellbeing, academic success, and persistence through graduation.

Topics Covered

As a result of this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Overcome concerns about academic preparedness and rigor – reframe new opportunities of resilience gained by students during a time of pandemic and virtual learning and integrate new possibilities for student learning and engagement.
  • Implement “it’s not too late” strategies in preparation for students’ return and continued persistence on campus – build out a new Sophomore Year Experience on your campus through connection, collaboration, and creative efforts.
  • Engage and support these “pandemic sophomores” – help faculty and staff support sophomores inside and outside the classroom, through sustained and intentional engagement efforts.
  • Identify opportunities for collaboration with support services including mental health, tutoring, socialization, outside of the classroom learning/dynamics and campus life – set up a “call to action” for experiences and initiatives that will get – and keep – your sophomore students on track to persist toward graduation.
