ATP On-line Workshop LAST CALL Announcement

s         Linking Learning Styles To Enhance Student Success

s         Small Group Academic Support

s         Academic Support for Students with Disabilities and

will be offered beginning June 10, 2006 and ending August 13, 2006.
Anyone wishing to participate should register by May 31.  You may
register for the workshop as one unit or as individual workshops at 
http://www.jsu.edu/depart/edprof/atp/
<http://www.jsu.edu/depart/edprof/atp/>  .

 

The workshops are offered as a group because of the interwoven nature of
the specifics and details of each of the themes. Each participant will
work independently, but on-going communication on the discussion board
for each module will allow everyone to share experiences and network
with other professionals.  Each module will carry two CEUs, but active
participation on the discussion board is required to earn the
certificate of completion. The intended audience is tutors and tutor
trainers. All of the workshops are open entry/open exit workshops, where
participants may visit any module at any time.

The 'four pack" has all been developed to offer a comprehensive overview
of academic support programs for a variety of students.  It is the goal
of the workshop to allow participants to get a very broad view of the
field of academic support and how it may function to enhance student
success.  

The cost for registering for the entire four-pack workshop special is
$75 for ATP members and $100 for non-members.  However, you may become a
member and enroll for the workshop at the same time.  The cost to
register for any of the workshops separately is $35 for members and $60
for non-members (you may apply for membership for the same $60 price).
You may register for the workshop on-line and/or apply for membership at
http://www.jsu.edu/depart/edprof/atp/
