A Window Into BIT 2.0
BIT Meeting Simulation and Training
A Window into BIT 2.0 is a video-based training tool to enhance campus BIT and Student of Concern Team professional development. Watch national behavioral intervention team experts and campus practitioners model a BIT meeting as they role-play key team roles. The one-hour video comes with a detailed transcript, sample documentation from the meeting, and discussion questions for your team to use as a training tool to better understand how to develop and improve BIT meetings.
This training looks different from the first Window into BIT. In version 2.0, we look at a community college that has more limited resources. We also increased diversity on the team to more accurately reflect how BITs exist in actual practice. Instead of reviewing close to 20 cases, this version focuses on a more detailed discussion of three cases. This allows participants to better understand the phases of BIT process through 1) gathering information, 2) applying the NABITA Threat Assessment Tool, and 3) developing interventions.
An additional element of this training video is strong team leadership. Amy Murphy, Ph.D., who directs the team, brings 15 years of experience as a Dean of Students at a major university to demonstrate how best to work with unruly team members, keep the group focused on the three phases of the BIT, and avoid issues of bias and opinion from impacting decisions. Two follow-up videos demonstrate Dr. Murphy meeting with a team member and correcting his actions, and a demonstration of an uncooperative team member separating from the team.
