Advising Strategies for Students on Academic Probation NACADA Webinar
Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015
1:00pm to 2:00pm
301 Lincoln Hall (LH)
Webinar Overview (more information is available here: http://tinyurl.com/pjbhp3z)
In 2010 and 2013, the NACADA Probation/Dismissal/Reinstatement (PDR) Issues Interest Group sponsored webinars in which panelists shared information and strategies for assisting students who are on academic probation, facing dismissal, or seeking reinstatement. Laying the foundation for this topic, they discussed how we define “student on academic probation,” factors that place students at risk for being placed on probation, typical probationary policies, stakeholders responsible for supporting students on academic probation, and the role and responsibilities of those who advise these students. Institutional programs that are supportive of this student population were discussed and useful resources shared.
Webinar participants have responded to these events with appreciation for the information, ideas, and materials previously shared and requests for additional strategies to assist them in meeting the needs of these struggling students. PDR Issues Interest Group Chair Joy Cox has responded to those requests with the development of a Pocket Guide and recruitment of articles for NACADA’s quarterly e-publication, Academic Advising Today, on this topic. On Tuesday, March 3, 2015, Joy will return to the AdvisorConnect venue with authors from these publications to discuss the good work being done at their institutions to help academically at risk students find their way to successful degree completion.
Topics to be addressed include:
• What happens when chronically struggling students are given another chance?
• Maximizing the use of an early alert system through advisor outreach
• Individualizing an academic probation program through institutional partnerships and selective technology systems
Feel free to bring your lunch and light refreshments will also be provided.
