Academic advisors and administrators constantly face decisions about which technologies to use in daily advising practice and how to support the evolving student population. As higher education issues are discussed and debated, there are changes looming on the horizon. Although "transformation is a process, not an event" (Kotter, 2007), it impacts our student support structures and often comes when we least expect it. Whether it is technological necessity or institutional change, we need a way to encourage advising programs to consider technology for both content and service delivery for advisee-centered approaches (Steele, 2015), and effective ways to evaluate what needs now for what lies ahead.
Given the challenges faced by our post-secondary institutions in the last few years, there is no wonder why you should not consider transforming your academic advising organization. Lowenstein (2013) states, "advising is informed by cutting-edge thinking." In a time of continuous change and evolving needs in higher education, how do you become the lead critical thinker and proactive change agent? In what ways can innovation scaffold your advising unit to move towards a learner-centered model and meet the demands of your campus?
You will get the answers to these questions in this webinar by our expert speaker, Laura A. Pasquini, as she explains how technology planning and academic advising can effectively work together to support higher education institutions during this time of innovation and transformation. Laura will provide you with the initial knowledge, tools, and strategies to review your own academic advising unit with the shifting state of post-secondary education and institutional changes.
As a participant, you will also get the following bonus digital handouts:
