"Coping with Classroom Incivilities: Nanny 9-1-1 for the Professor"

*(60minutes) 24/7 via the internet http://www.starlinktraining.org 

Although this program explores student behavior, the emphasis is not on the student, but on how educators can best approach these difficult situations. What proactive strategies will reduce the occurrence of incivilities in the first place? And when incivilities do surface, what tactics minimize their negative impact on the class?"

ACC Faculty and Staff have access to these free, web-delivered workshops and videos each month via Starlink, but the login process and website has changed. Instead of receiving a password each time you would like to watch a video for Professional Development credit, you will now have an individual login in order to access all of the available materials! Go to www.starlinktraining.org  and create an account using your ACC email. For instructions, go here.

Getting Credit - Starlink has a "Viewing Verification Tool." There's a simple tool that allows an individual to send an e-mail verification to confirm that they watched a STARLINK Professional Development Program. CLICK the "Resources" Tab, Viewing Verification Form to begin.

All ACC Employees have Access to the Starlink Library

The STARLINK Library consists of 125 hours of video-based professional development. It is divided into two parts: ninety “Archived Videos” which are 60 to 90 minute programs and one-hundred thirty “Ideas” which are two to seven minute single concept teaching tips. The award-winning and nationally renowned teachers featured in these videos present proven best practices, time-honored teaching concepts, and the latest classroom and online concepts.

Each program that STARLINK produces is accompanied by a 20 to 30 page resource packet. This print packet supplements and enhances the concepts and teaching strategies presented in the video program. It generally contains articles by the presenters, bibliography, and various other kinds of print materials to assist faculty and administrators to promote student learning.
