The Digitally Connected Student Affairs Educator
Presented By: Dr. Josie Ahlquist, International Digital Leadership Speaker, Florida State University
Date and time: April 13, 2017 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CST / 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST
In August 2015, NASPA and ACPA approved the revised version of the Student Affairs Professional Competencies. One of the most significant changes was the addition of Technology, that solidifies tech as an essential part of work in Student Affairs. NODA also recently released a set of competencies for professionals working in Orientation, Transition, and Retention. Attendees will learn about both sets of competencies through the lens of technology.
The webinar will apply related rubrics to track learning and growth, practical application in the field of student affairs, and plenty of resources for practitioners at all levels. Finally, the facilitator will share her research that produced a framework for digital leadership in higher education, as well as a digital decision-making model. Collectively, these tools will guide participants in building a reflective and values-based foundation for adopting and utilizing technology, resulting in a digitally connected student affairs educator.
