Diversity: Bridging Student Systems to Impact Event Attendance - North 127A

Presenters: Rodney Parks, Elon University

In recent weeks, institutions of higher education across the country have been spurred into action to address the racial climates of their campuses. Like many institutions with a "themed term”, Elon brings numerous speakers to campus to engage in dialogues with students, faculty, and staff, however, student attendance at these events is sparse. To improve attendance, a new idea to link standard course registration to an events management system used to register students for diversity-themed events at the same time they registered for next semester's classes was hatched. By using verbiage that indicated mandatory attendance and adding a link to the Registration Results screen, students were redirected to an events management system where they registered for two themed diversity events at the same time that they registered for their campus courses. The overall impact of connecting the two systems showed a significant increase in students attending themed diversity events outside of class. In fact, for first year students alone the university was able to train 600 first year students in Anti-Defamation League Training, double the number than the rest of the year combined.

Disruptive Silence: Deepening Experiential Learning Abroad - Poster Area

Presenters: Rodney Parks, Elon University

This qualitative research examines the experiences of students at the point they are disconnected from sustaining technologies (phone, internet, etc.) during a segment of their study abroad course. For many years, students have embedded the incremental improvements offered by sustaining technologies in their daily lives. This confluence of technologies and socialized behaviors has resulted in interdependencies for many students, disrupting normal functioning when the technologies are unavailable. Social networking has had a major impact on the way we communicate, disrupting many of the traditional ways we educate students. As institutions attempt to grow experiential learning opportunities that expose students to experiences outside a traditional academic setting, sustaining technologies play in our ability to deepen these experiences. This research presents the results of what happens when students are truly disconnected from those sustaining technologies during a global education experience. The research will present findings on how students feel when they are completely disconnected from sustaining technologies for an extended period of time (> 24 hours).
