The AAHPERD Student Services Committee is preparing this mini-conference that will be valuable for students in a four-year Undergraduate Program and students in a five-year Masters-level Teacher Education Program that leads to an initial teaching license. This multi-day schedule will allow students who arrive after Wednesday to attend the Thursday and Friday morning sessions. We invite students to attend as many of the sessions as possible. When designing the schedule, the Student Services Committee made an effort to avoid conflicts with other sessions that the students should attend.
Professional development topics covered at the 2014 Undergraduate Student Forum will include: mentoring, networking, advocacy, majors clubs, and career building tips and strategies.
Wednesday, 8:00 – 9:30 a.m.:
This session will start with a lively Ice Breaker activity. Don't miss this opportunity to meet students from across the country and develop a Game Plan for maximizing your time at the Convention. We will identify the Hot Topics in our Field and Convention sessions about these topics. Participants will attend the Convention Opening General Session as a group.
Thursday, 8 – 10 a.m.:
The program includes a Beginning Teachers' Panel that will discuss the job hunting process, interviewing and what to expect your first year as a teacher. Several break-out sessions will cover Resume Writing, Preparing for Graduate School and Majors Clubs. The Majors Clubs session will provide an opportunity for students to gain and share ideas for active and successful Majors Clubs.
Friday, 8 – 10:30 a.m.:
This session includes a Future Professionals Networking Session with North American Society Members and strategies to develop leadership skills and capitalize on professional involvement. Several Registrations for the 2013 AAHPERD Convention will be raffled off at this session. The Forum concludes with a practical Speed Interviewing activity.
