Just a quick reminder of the trainings we have scheduled over the next two weeks. All sessions will be held in LC 306. Clink on this link to sign up to attend: http://webapp.uvu.edu/advisortraining/acs/
Tuesday, January 2st – 10:00-11:00 a.m. – Electronic Portfolios – Shalece Nuttall
Electronic Portfolios are a great way to display your professional qualifications, accomplishments, and advising experience, and a visual tool to share with advising professionals and your students. This session will cover why you should create/maintain an advising portfolio, benefits of e-portfolios, what to include, and starting the creation of your e-portfolio.
Thursday, January 23rd – 10:00-11:00 a.m. – Student Decision Making – Clint Moser
Responsible behavior includes the ability to connect “what I’ve done” to “what happens or happened as a result of what I’ve done.” A sense of confidence and empowerment is reinforced every time an individual has the opportunity to experience the outcomes of his or her own choosing. Come and learn about some decision making models that can be applied in your advising sessions to help your students recognize the importance of seeking information before making a decision, and assist in developing the skills that will lead them to self-confidence and empowerment.
Wednesday, January 29th – 10:00 a.m.-12:00 noon – Strengths Finder 2.0 – Jan Klingman
This session is limited to 10 participants (the first 10 to sign up through the scheduling system), each of will receive a copy of the book Strengths Finder 2.0 at no cost, and be given the opportunity to take the Clifton Strengths Finder assessment. “Strengths Finder” helps you to answer the questions: “Who am I?” “How do I best contribute to make this a better world?” Strengths finder was created as a self-awareness tool to understand strengths (the ability to provide consistent, near perfect performance in a specific activity), talents (naturally reoccurring patterns of thought feeling or behavior that can be productively applied), skill (the capacity to perform the fundamental steps of an activity) and, knowledge (what you know, either factually or through awareness gained by experience). Learning how to develop and apply strengths will improve your level of achievement. Each of your talents can be applied in many areas including relationships, learning, academics, leadership, service and careers. Once you have learned the value of knowing your strengths, you can begin to share this valuable tool with the students you advise on a daily basis. Participants must complete the assessment and read the book prior to attending the session which help them understand how to maximize personal effectiveness, identify strengths in others, and achieve success.
