May 2010 seems like so long ago but we just have to fill everyone in on RU TRDV’s participation in the 2010 American Society for Training and Development’s International Conference and Exposition (ASTD ICE) held in Chicago! Leaders from ASTD worked with volunteers from the Chicagoland Chapter of ASTD (CCASTD) as well as professionals around the world to create an event that provided a seemingly endless array of networking and best practice sharing opportunities for anyone who attend. This year was the first ASTD ICE to feature a “Student Day” where local university students in training and performance programs could attend an especially designed program free of charge. Many RU TRDV students took advantage of this opportunity and we were happy to see our programs so smartly represented to the training world!
RU TRDV took advantage of an ASTD ICE event in our own back yard by staffing an information booth in the Expo area. Current students, alumni, and faculty members were present at the booth to discuss our programs and best practices with thousands of attendees from all over the globe. We were happy to see so many members of the RU TRDV community stop by, say hello, and offer insight to Expo attendees who were interested in learning more about the RU TRDV experience.
In addition to the booth in the Expo area, RU TRDV lead a panel discussion titled, “University/Professional Organization Partnerships: A competitive advantage” on Monday, May 18, 2010. Panelists included Tara Hawkins (Program Coordinator), George Vuckotich (Faculty), Kathleen Iverson (Faculty), Michelle Fillichicha (Faculty), and Mark Durgee (student) in addition to leaders from ASTD. The session highlighted RU TRDV’s participation as the first university program in ASTD’s University Partnership Program.

When students graduate from Roosevelt University’s Training and Development (RU TRDV) masters degree programs they go out in the world and do some amazing things! We have alumni in various leadership roles in organizations where effective training and performance interventions bring some amazing results. We pride ourselves in helping our students create professional development plans that will continue to sharpen our alumni’s competencies long after they receive their diplomas.
So it should be no surprise that some of our graduates amass so much experience that they might someday consider sharing their knowledge with the next wave of students seeking the same success. Many of these professionals-turned-instructors will connect with students in an online learning environment. Online learning is not new. In fact most graduates of RU TRDV programs will have taken at least one class online by the time they graduate. Knowledge transfer techniques in an online environment are different than those found in a traditional face-to-face classroom.
It is in this light that RU TRDV has developed and rolled out a new post-graduate certificate plan called the Graduate Certificate in Online Teaching. This three-class program is designed to help seasoned professionals design and successfully instruct classes in an online environment. For details on classes, the application process, or relevance of the certificate program in the workplace click here or contact Tara Hawkins (email@example.com).
