Designing a Career Curriculum

Audience: Career services
Level: Intermediate/advanced

Four (4) NBCC recertification clock hours

Although career centers often collect placement data, student engagement data, and student satisfaction data, staff still can’t say whether students are prepared to make sound decisions about their careers and conduct successful job searches. Are you offering the right programming and services for students? Are your students learning what you intend them to learn?

Using this half-day preconference program, you’ll learn how the development of student learning outcomes (SLOs) can help your career services team identify the skills that are most relevant to students’ job searches. You’ll also learn to evaluate existing programs against students’ needs to determine what stays and what goes.

Presenters: Rae Ann Bories-Easley and Mira Luna, University of Denver

From Planning to Implementation: Action-Oriented Strategy Development
Audience: University relations and recruiting
Level: Advanced
Four (4) HRCI recertification hours
Fee: Through 4/4/14: $625 (NACE member); $825 (nonmember). After 4/4/14: $725 (NACE member); $925 (nonmember)

Organizations invest substantial time and money in developing strategic plans to achieve goals, but these often fall short—never moving “off the page,” or producing tangible results.

Using NACE’s Professional Standards for University Relations and Recruiting as a foundation, join other senior- and advanced-level URR professionals for this half-day preconference program to help you enhance or overhaul your current strategic plan using sound development principles. You’ll also design the means for implementing your strategies, so your strategic plan becomes a powerful tool that provides vision for achieving your goals rather than just a document you dust off on an annual basis.
