We have some more training opportunities this week:
Today, Tuesday, February 21st 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Title: Perspectives on the Future of Academic Advising (1 AEU)
Presenter: Wade Oliver, Director of the Office of University Advising
Description: Questions, visions, and predictions about the future of Academic Advising have increasingly surfaced in advising literature over the years as the function and role of advisors has been considered and debated nationally, and within individual institutions. This session will bring together several different views from the past few years regarding the future of academic advising as a profession, and the role and purpose of advising for students and institutions. The session will also include an overview of the current movement among higher education institutions to recognize the impactful role advisors can play to improve student academic planning and graduation through the use of data analytics and proactive outreach. Content for this session will be drawn from chapters published by NACADA as well as some recent articles and reports regarding the role and impact of advisors. All of this information will be provided to participants prior to the session.
Wednesday, February 22nd 10:00 am to 11:00 am
Title: Presentation Pitch Workshop (1 AEU)
Facilitator: Melanee Wilson, Advisor Training and Development Coordinator
Description: This workshop will facilitate a conversation—so we would love to have many advisors come to share their experience and knowledge. We want advisors to bring ideas they have had for a presentation but have not had a chance to fully explore. Come discuss your idea and get feedback from your peers about the topic you are interested in—maybe you will even find someone that shares your passion that you can collaborate with! Depending on time we may also discuss common challenges in advising and tips for success and sometimes survival.
Thursday, February 23rd 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Title: Working with Veterans (1 AEU)
Presenter: CW2 Sheldon Holgreen, Director of the Veteran Center and Veteran Certifying Official
Description: UVU is dedicated to serving Veteran students and helping them navigate some of the challenges they face in this new environment. This presentation will discuss some of the unique aspects to consider when working with Veterans and will help advisors better understand needs of Veteran students.
