Effective Evidence-Based Coaching for Enhanced Engagement in a Virtual Workplace

CE Credit: 1

Session offered by Division 13. Virtual education is becoming one of the most effective forms of instructional delivery for adults as the demand for on-line programs continues to grow. However, as many as 50% of students fail to complete their on-line courses, which is more than 20% higher than traditional courses (Carr, 2000; Lorenzetti, 2003).These findings emphasize the need to develop strategies to address learner engagement and retention.

Session offered by Division 17. International students studying in the U.S. has increased to 690,923 in 2009/2010 and by 25% this past decade (Institute of International Education, 2010).

Career Counseling--- Definitions and New Directions

CE Credit: 1

Session offered by Division 17. The 21st-century digital age finds vocational psychology renovating itself. One way it does so concerns articulating and elaborating career counseling theory that applies to diverse groups in manifest settings. The models and methods of the corporate era in high modernity do not seem to fit a multicultural, global society. Despite sustained efforts to apply career development theories to counseling, the fact remains as Osipow (1994) stated some years ago: “Career theories are not counseling theories” (p. More
