PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT: Honors College is hosting lunch and a screening of NACADA’s webinar “Academic Advising for High Achieving Students: Strategies that Foster Resilience” on 11/20.

The Honors College is hosting an open house for advisors on Friday, November 20 from 12pm to 2pm in Burnham Hall.

At noon, we will be offering lunch and a screening of the NACADA webinar Academic Advising for High Achieving Students: Strategies that Foster Resilience, followed by a discussion.

The webinar, adapted from a presentation by Kerry Thomas and Nova Schauss at the NACADA Region 8 Conference, provides strategies, curriculum, language, and research surrounding how to assist students through the challenges of their undergraduate career.  While there will be particular relevance to high achieving students, the material will be applicable to various student populations.  For more information on the webinar and/or its presenters, visit http://www.nacada.ksu.edu/Events-Programs/Events/Web-Events/Web-Events-Coming/Web-Event-Nov-2015.aspx.

UARC April Brown Bags: National Academic Advising Association (NACADA) Webinar “Academic Advising and Social Justice” (4/23/15) and Follow-up Discussion (4/29/15)

UARC April Brown Bags: National Academic Advising Association (NACADA) Webinar “Academic Advising and Social Justice” (4/23/15) and Follow-up Discussion (4/29/15)

 

Please join us for our upcoming Spring Undergraduate Advising Resource Center (UARC) Brown Bag Event:

Academic Advising and Social Justice: Privilege, Diversity, and Student Success

NACADA Webinar

Thursday, April 23rd, 2015

1:00pm to 2:00pm

320 Lincoln Hall (LH)

Webinar Overview (more information is available here: http://tinyurl.com/lapgp6f):

Academic advisors and advising administrators must understand social identities in order to identify the challenges students face when interacting with various campus systems. However, advising professionals are often untrained in dealing with issues of privilege and diversity. In this Web Event, sponsored by the NACADA Diversity Committee and led by NACADA Technology in Advising Commission Chair Julie Larsen, our panelists will share information and strategies that can help advisors form stronger relationships with students, identify specific challenges and roadblocks facing students, and create individualized solutions to increase success and retention. In addition, they will discuss ideas for re-conceptualizing advising around issues of social justice which can foster both the ability and the responsibility to be voices for change at our institutions.

Feel free to bring your lunch and light refreshments will also be provided.

In addition to the webinar, we plan to hold a follow-up discussion over the lunch hour for webinar attendees (or later viewers of the recording) on Wednesday, April 29th, 2015 from 12:00pm to 1:00pm (2550 UH).

 

Please RSVP by April 22nd at the following link: https://illinois.edu/fb/sec/520504.
