Conference Overview: The evolution of Counselor Education means that many programs offer classes and degrees partially or totally online. Innovations in technology allow such practices to meet the rigor and standards of accreditation while maintaining cultural relevance and sensitivity. As educators, we must be strategic in how we approach our work. The Counselor Education Distance Learning (CEDL) Conference gives online educators, or those interested in the development of best practices, a space to share their pedagogical innovations and processes. This practical and innovative fully virtual conference will inspire and inform those who currently provide or are interested in providing online counselor education.
The Social Justice Force of CEDL Counselor Education in a distance learning format is truly an initiative in social justice. By reaching underserved students and crossing state and national borders, we can offer training opportunities to students with a passion for helping those who are geographically bound. In addition, students have the opportunity to learn from faculty and peers from outside of their typical area. Why Attend? Many counselor education programs have moved toward distance learning. Due to COVID-19, we all had to. We recognize that pandemic pedagogy is not the same as planful distance learning that is rooted in research. It is both essential and responsible for counselor education programs to evolve and evolve well. That evolution should be strategic, grounded in best practice, and driven by a social justice mindset.
Attending CEDL will allow participants to bring best-practice pedagogy into their programs, whether they are teaching one program in an online/hybrid format or an entire curriculum. CEDL allows like-minded educators to engage in thoughtful discussion and training on concepts essential to delivery models that are rapidly changing. The conference is organized to benefit the educator new to online teaching as well as those who have been working in this space for some time.
The conference addresses topics related to teaching and training counselors in an online format. Sessions for educators new to online training, as well as for those with experience, are offered. Sessions related to the challenges of student engagement, clinical placements, social justice curricula, and specific program offerings are provided, along with sessions on the hard pivot to online pedagogy.
The registration fee includes live online instruction, continuing education credits, and e-copies of all conference materials.
