ACADAOS Workshop Series: Brainstorming Presentation Ideas

Tuesday, December 18th, members of ACADAOS met to brainstorm ideas for presentation proposals that could be submitted by advisors who were interested in presenting at various conferences. One of the biggest challenges with writing a proposal is actually coming up with an idea of what to present, so we thought we would share some of the ideas that were discussed (see below). Each participant shared wonderful ideas with the group and are open to presenting with others, which is why their contact information is listed next to the ideas. If you see a topic that interests you and you want to chat or are interested in presenting with the advisor listed, please feel free to reach out to them.

  • General ideas if anyone is interested: 
    • Utilizing the Digital Flagship initiative in advising and/or survey (maybe a future topic once we have another year under our belts as a campus?)
    • Currently changing student demographics/personality (attention, reliant on specific forms of technology, need to go back to basics w/technology, etc.)
    • Different support systems established for students and encouraging them to take advantage of offerings (i.e. support from the start, FYE red/yellow/green light)

Moving forward, we will be hosting a second workshop focused on how to write proposals for submission and feedback, so keep an eye out for this offering in spring. Also, if there is a conference that you would like to present at, this is a good time to make note of proposal deadlines. Members of the ACADAOS Professional Development Committee are happy to assist you with the proposal feedback as well.

September 2018 Advisor of the Month!

Check out all the amazing things our advising colleagues have done this month! Thank you for all of your hard work!

Max Gulick Max has had a lot on his plate this semester as the coordinator of the EXP 1100 survey class in addition to a full advising load. There have been a lot of changes this year, particularly incorporating the IPads into the survey class, and Max has stepped up and made this transition much smoother for the rest of the team at Newark, all the while remaining available to his students (and taking graduate classes!) I’ve really appreciated all of the detailed follow-up he has done in implementing new processes and formats for class materials. He has worked with us for a little over a year now and has made an excellent addition to our team!

Congratulations Max!
