Instilling Excellence in Counseling Students Living Abroad Through International Community Engagement

30-Minute Poster Session
Jennifer Cliff, Shauna Ianson, Alexia DeLeon, Brandon J. Wilde 
Engaging chapter members globally is a focus of the Alpha Sigma Chi Chapter at Adams State University. Our chapter's unique efforts to engage counselors-in-training residing internationally have presented challenging, but exciting opportunities to support community engagement beyond the scope of traditional chapter activities. Using technology to inclusively engage counseling students living across the continental US and abroad demands a dynamic approach to building professional counseling competency while fostering multicultural awareness among all students.

Strategies for Designing an Effective Poster Presentation

30-Minute Poster Session
Chantrelle Varnado-Johnson, Hayley Stulmaker, W. Matthew Shurts 
Presenting material at professional meetings and conferences is an important skill for counselors and counselor educators to possess. Unfortunately, many poster presentations suffer from some common shortcomings (e.g., unclear design; too much text/content; lack of logical visual flow of information). The purpose of this poster is to present strategies for creating an effective, visually-appealing poster. Concrete approaches and ideas will be demonstrated on the poster and discussed by the presenters.

Demonstration of a Real-Time Virtual Classroom Using a Collaborative Synchronous Tool for Online Learning and Counseling

30-Minute Poster Session
Deborah Erickson, Rachel Marsden 
New collaborative synchronous online tools that create real-time virtual classrooms can facilitate positive learning communities more easily than text-based online courses. The professor can lead a seminar with each student at their computer talking and seeing each other in real time. This tool facilitates the creation of trust, bonding, and respect between students and faculty similar to any face-to-face seminar. Students are more responsive to feedback when they know one another in real time. The program will demonstrate a real-time group of students discussing a prerecorded role-play. Research results of student satisfaction will be shared, and applications for supervision and counseling clients in a counseling center will be discussed.
