Student Development Theory - Student Support Certificate

Student development theory (SDT) is the backbone of most student affairs training: a collection of quite similar theories on how 18-24 year old people think, behave and interact. These theories can be a useful way of analysing why a student acts in a certain way, and they give us all an opportunity to step back occasionally and put student behaviour in perspective. Using SDT can also be helpful in assisting students to increase their understanding of others and their empathy towards them. This session includes an encapsulated overview of the main theories, and will focus on how they can be used to not only explain some student behaviour, but to encourage further development.

Supporting International Students -
Student Support Certificate

International students make up 7-8% of the Trent student population and more than 80 countries and cultures are in that mix. International students can present different concerns than domestic students, including cultural adaptation, immigration procedures, health insurance concerns and a lack of an immediate support network. TIP successfully engages a broad range of international students, and provides opportunities for building community and trans-cultural friendship. This workshop will highlight some of these concerns, while discussing issues of cross-cultural communication and inter-cultural competency. Additionally, we will discuss resources available for international students on campus and in the community, and provide you ways to continue building a supportive and inclusive environment for all at Trent.
