No-Cost Customizable Online Training for Students and Staff in Sexual and Interpersonal Violence Prevention:
In April 2017, the State University of New York and the City University of New York, will launch an online training system to assist colleges and universities in training students in prevention of sexual, interpersonal and related violence. The system is designed to run as a course in BlackBoard or another learning management system, and to communicate with Banner or PeopleSoft for tracking of course completion. Rather than a static video with one-size-fits-all content, this system allows and even demands customization and personalization by colleges so that your students are trained by their fellow students, as well as their faculty, staff and institutional leaders. And best of all, due to the support of the participating institutions and significant volunteer work by the working group members, we can offer the system at no cost.
We will offer two webinars in November and December to introduce the resource, and two webinars in February to roll it out. You can register for any of the webinars and register your campus as a participant at this website:http://system.suny.edu/sexual-violence-prevention-workgroup/online-training/
Please contact Rebecca Harrinton for more information
