OAD Brown Bags Event – viewing of the NACADA Webinar – “Nudging Students to Success: The Integration of Academic Advising and Motivational Psychology”
Presenters from past highly-rated NACADA conferences come together to address this question: How do academic advisors effectively motivate students to take advantage of student success offices and academic planning tools?
Presenters will discuss the micro and macro factors that contribute to this issue, and will argue that academic advisors play an essential role in the solution. Utilizing techniques found in Richard Thaler and Cass Sunstein’s “Nudge: Improving Decisions about Health, Wealth, and Happiness,” advisors are able to nudge students into making good decisions by altering predictable behavior through incentives such as intentional acts of persuasion and guidance to produce outcomes while maintaining a student’s agency.
