Description

Research indicates that you can help first-year students — especially at-risk or underprepared students — increase academic stamina and success by helping them improve essential non-cognitive skills. But do you know which non-cognitive skills to target and how? Join us online to learn how to promote persistence and performance by helping first-year students develop an educational action plan to improve four key non-cognitive skills:

* Self-efficacy
* Academic engagement
* Educational commitment
* Campus engagement

Institutions can better prepare first-year students to succeed in college by applying current research on these critical non-cognitive skills in first-year seminars. In this webcast, instructors and professional staff who work with first-year students will learn how to:

* Facilitate positive discussions with students about their non-cognitive strengths and weaknesses
* Assist students in creating an educational action plan
* Use effective instructional methods to help students improve the non-cognitive skills that will help them succeed and persist in college

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This program is ideal for first-year seminar instructors and directors and assistant directors of first-year student programs.
