ALP and Career Design Lab Present at UPCEA

Associate Director of Learning Resources and Academic Technology Domi Enders, Lecturer in Language in the American Language Program Brittany Ober, Associate Director of Partnerships and ALP Senior Lecturer in Language Shelley A. Saltzman, and Director of Career Education and Development and Lecturer Diane Spizzirro presented at the annual conference of the University Professional and Continuing Education Association (UPCEA) in Orlando, Florida on April 13, 2022, with Brittany participating via a videotaped segment. UPCEA is the leading association for administrators focused on professional, continuing and online education (PCO).


The presentation, entitled "Using Language Immersion to Accelerate Career Development for a Diverse Population,” detailed the work this unique cross-functional team did to pilot the Career and Communication Accelerator course last summer. With their colleagues in Marketing, Admissions, Advising, Recruitment, Media and Advertising, and Creative Services, they are the recipients of the 2022 Team Impact Award, which honors "an SPS administrative team that successfully implemented a new initiative, program, or project this academic year that positively impacted SPS stakeholders beyond their teams."
