In this webinar, staff from WCET/State Authorization Network (SAN) and NC-SARA will discuss federal, state, and SARA requirements for tracking student location while participating in institution activities (ex. online courses & experiential learning). Additionally, representatives from three institutions will share their methods and tools for tracking students for the purposes of institutional planning, compliance, and data reporting, focusing on strategies for tracking military students and experiential learning placements. This webinar will complement sessions planned for the SAN Advanced Topics Workshop in March.
