NACADA Webinar “Mindset, Right to Fail, and Persistence: Academic Advising in Support of Student Success”

We would like to invite you to view the next NACADA Webinar “Mindset, Right to Fail, and Persistence: Academic Advising in Support of Student Success.”  However, we are going to try something different for viewing/discussion options for this webinar. We are going to offer an in-person viewing opportunity as a group and then a discussion afterwards, so you can participate in both or view the webinar on your own and then join in during the discussion. The information regarding the webinar can be found below:

Date: Wednesday, March 8, 2017

3pm-4pm: In-Person Viewing of Webinar

4pm-5pm: Webinar Discussion

Location: Fontana Lab Room 142

Click on the link to the event recording, which will be available to you through March 10, 2017. As with live attendance, we ask that this link only be shared with others on your campus.

This Event Handout is posted at http://www.nacada.ksu.edu/Events/Web-Events/Web-Event-Handouts.aspx.  If you missed getting it prior to the event, it will remain available for you there for at least the coming month.

Since we are trying something different, we want to make sure we have enough space for everyone. If you are planning to attend either or both options, please email Amanda Crall (crall.25@osu.edu) to RSVP.

Thanks!

NACADA Webinar “Helping Students Clarify Their Dreams: Advising the Foreclosed Student”

We would like to invite you to view the next NACADA Webinar “Helping Students Clarify Their Dreams: Advising the Foreclosed Student.” We are currently working with the Lima campus to discuss the content of the webinar during the Lima Campus Visit scheduled for February 17, 2017, so we would encourage those of you who are planning to attend to watch the webinar. See below for access to the webinar and supporting materials.

Even if you are unable to make it to the Lima Campus Visit, this webinar would be a great one to make time for. At some point in every advisor’s career, they will come across a foreclosed student, so the information in this webinar would be handy on our quest to help students reach their goals.

Click on the link to the event recording, which will be available to you through January 31, 2017. As with live attendance, we ask that this link only be shared with others on your campus.

Thanks, and we will keep you updated on the plans for a discussion!

Conference Proposal Writing Workshop Series

The second workshop in the Conference Proposal Writing series will be December 20th, from 1:30-3:00pm in the Journalism Building room 274. We would encourage anyone who is interested and can make it to attend. (It’s okay if you did not attend the first workshop. We can catch you up!)

Below are some topics of interest that were brought up at the first workshop during our brainstorming session:

  • Tracking and using appointment data
  • Self-care for advisors
  • Compensation and scope creep
  • Careers and degrees
  • Fighting against “Yahoo articles” about careers/majors
  • Increasing retention and completion rates in Learning Communities
  • Preparing students for capstone experiences
  • Developing Learning Outcomes for advising programming/Using Backwards Course Design

If you are interested in possibly collaborating on one of these topics please consider attending the workshop. If you are unable to attend but would still like to collaborate, please contact Stephanie Elliott (elliott.302@osu.edu), and she will help connect everyone interested.

Proposals for the Office of Undergraduate Education’s 2017 Advising Conference are due January 13th, so this workshop will be the perfect opportunity to get started on your proposal! Additionally, this workshop would be helpful if you are thinking about submitting a proposal for conferences that will occur in mid-to late 2017 since submission deadlines tend to be early.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Amanda Crall (crall.25@osu.edu) or Stephanie Elliot know. Thanks, and we hope to see you at the workshop!
