Penn State World Campus is sending faculty and staff on a mission: to learn how to best support military and veteran students at Penn State. We’ve created a mission-oriented online professional development course titled Serving Those Who Serve. The course covers aspects of military life and culture; Penn State policies and best practices for serving the military audience; links to available support resources; video interviews with faculty, staff, and students; and finally, scenarios that encourage participants to apply lessons learned to real situations Penn State military and veteran students have faced.
This webinar will introduce you to the course as we discuss the challenges military students face and share ways that Penn State supports them both in and out of the online classroom.
Facilitated by Todd Bacastow, Professor of Practice for Geospatial Intelligence, Dutton e-Education Institute; Kristin Bittner, Instructional Designer at Penn State Public Media, WPSU; Ginny Newman, Assistant Director Defense Sector Education, Penn State; and Andrew Tatusko, Assistant Director for World Campus Faculty Development.
