00432 Millennials, E-learning, and the Evolving Workplace
Thursday, February 11, 2016
11:00AM - 12:00PM 
uci.webex.com

2015 marks the year that the “millennial” became not only the largest generation in the workforce, but the largest living generation. This shift has spurred the release of a multitude of reports on differences in workplace habits, technology use and buying power of what appears to be a very hands-on, connected, and collaborative population. Simultaneously, we are watching the equally large population of “Baby Boomers” retire from business and leadership roles. This confluence of factors is creating a leadership gap in the workplace, resulting in young leaders being thrust into managerial roles with little to no preparation. A lack of innovative options for delivering training to this population seems to keep us stuck force-fitting traditional solutions rather than evolving our approach. Please join UCI Extension in welcoming 20-year veteran of e-learning and product development for fast-growing organizations, Mary Keenan, in discussing how to re-think the way we deliver learning to the dominant and most analyzed population in recent history. This webinar will include pre-registration advisement for individuals interested in UC Irvine Extension's fully online E-Learning Instructional Design Certificate Program.

00360 Acknowledging and Supporting the Spiritual Lives of Gifted Children
Tuesday, February 16, 2016

uci.webex.com

Spiritual sensitivity is experienced by gifted people from diverse cultures and religions and can be characterized by profound empathy and exceptional emotional depth, intuitive insight, and strong connections to the natural world. It often causes gifted children and adults to be misunderstood (and misdiagnosed) by others. This presentation will explain the characteristics of “spiritual sensitivity” and will provide resources for nourishing the minds, hearts, and bodies of these exquisitely sensitive people. Participants will receive strategies designed to help gifted kids utilize spiritual sensitivity as a building block to resilience, and to reduce the risk of developmental depression and risky teenage behaviors. This session is the third webinar in UCI Extension's 8th Annual GATE Webinar Series.
