Reach Higher Maine has developed this series of free webinars designed to help support school counselors in their work exposing students to career and college opportunities.
Each webinar is recorded and posted to our Google Classroom (join code 1bs991n) and available to counselors as an alternative professional development session for use during In Service Days at their school. The Google Classroom also hosts handouts from sessions, a discussion forum and a way to request a certificate of completion to use for continuing education credit. Note: You will need to be logged into a Google email (@gmail.com) account to get access to the Google Classroom.
December’s Webinar: Overview & Preparation Tips for the NextGen Accuplacer
When: December 15th at 1:00 PM (recording will post to Google Classroom within 1 week after live session)
Description: The Accuplacer has long been a viable testing alternative for many Maine students. The College Board has revised its entire suite of assessments, and the NextGen test will be here in Maine soon. This webinar will be a practical and succinct overview of NextGen and a discussion of how school counselors can prepare for these changes. We will also address how the colleges plan to help schools who used to have their own Accuplacer licenses test students and how the community colleges’ admission and placement policies will be shifting towards a statewide multiple measures approach.
Presenter: Mercedes Pour, State Director, Early College for ME, Maine Community College System
Upcoming webinars include: Second Semester Seniors, Summer Options for Career & College, as well as Helping Career Bound Seniors
