ACADAOS Workshop Series: Conference Proposal Ideas

In November, members of ACADAOS attended a workshop focused on brainstorming ideas for presentation proposals that could be submitted by advisors who were interested in presenting at various conferences. Sometimes, coming up with an idea can be the hardest part, so we thought we would share some of the ideas that were discussed (see below). Moving forward, we will be hosting a second workshop focused on how to write proposals for submission. This workshop will be held on Wednesday, January 24th from 3:30-5:00pm in Enarson 311. If you are interested in presenting on a topic listed below and/or are looking for others to present with, we would encourage you to contact Stephanie Elliott (elliott.302@osu.edu), so she can connect those who are interested in certain topics as soon as possible (especially if the conference you are considering requires submissions prior to the January 24th workshop).

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.

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.

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