SCWI Spring Symposium 2018
Tuesday, May 15, 2018
Location: TBD

The 2017 Symposium was a great success and we are already looking forward to the Symposium in 2018.

Congratulations to all the organizers, presenters, speakers, attendees and guests for coming together to create a valuable learning experience.

Introduction



Once again, on May 9, 2017, Humber College hosted over 350 representatives from the 16 RPTs and their associated Boards and Colleges that deliver dual credits to over 20,000 students throughout Ontario. Also in attendance were representatives from two Ministries – Education and Advanced Education & Skills Development, along with many others connected with the School College Work Initiative.

This annual gathering offers a unique opportunity for educators from every sector to learn, listen, share and grow in their shared commitment to student success.

This year's theme: "Celebrating 20 Years of SCWI Success" was exemplified by the many outstanding workshops presented by peers and leaders from all over Ontario.

Many of their presentations are gathered here. Input from surveys and RPTs drove the programming, and ensured both formal and informal opportunities to network and share.

The day concluded with a lively and insightful presentation by Dr. Stuart Middleton.

1.11 Disengagement: It might surprise us but it doesn’t surprise them
TARGET AUDIENCE: This session will be useful to educators and administrators who are worried about students dropping out of school but are not clear about the actions they can take to reduce the likelihood of it happening.
PRESENTER: Dr Stuart Middleton, Director External Relations
Manukau Institute of Technology, Auckland, New Zealand
Does the disengagement / dropping out of a student take you by surprise? Well the good news is that there is a procedure that will allow you to be pro-active in stopping it before it is too late. This session will take a new look at disengagement suggesting that it is a process and not an event, that it comes in different shapes and that it might only take 15-20 minutes to discover how you might help the student re-engage. The presenter has developed an approach that enables teachers and administrators to simply analyze the “state of the student” and assess the intensity of the likelihood of him or her dropping out. Not only that, the result of that simple assessment leads the teacher / administrator towards an intelligent intervention.
