Despite the volume of programs that student affairs professionals plan and implement, programming is not apparent in our professional competencies. In this webinar, the authors of the recent Stylus book, The Missing Competency, will present the Integrated Model for Program Development. The model provides a step-by-step guide that takes student affairs professionals from the idea for a program through implementation to using assessment to refine and improve the program for the future.
In the webinar, the authors will present the steps of the model using practical examples. They also will discuss the various tools and templates that can be found in the book.
