Comprehensive Advisor Training and Development, 3rd Edition
Preorder books for shipment will ship after November 1.
Advisors are focused on the success of their students. They do the work of advising not for money or fame, but because their meaningful work ensures that students reach their goals. In order to do so, those who serve students must have the knowledge, skills, abilities, and encouragement to do their work. This edited collection provides a practical framework for advisor training and professional development, underpinned by the theoretical rationale for those frameworks. This text is not focused on the “what” of advisor training but is instead intentionally focused on the “how” and the “why,” encouraging those responsible for development and implementation to have a clear means by which to support advisor success. Readers of this text will identify the centrality of the NACADA Core Values and Core Competencies to effective training and development but will also gain a practical suite of tools to be used in various higher educational contexts. Including, but not limited to initial program creation, authors consider complex concerns such as funding, technology, intercultural competence, and self-care--among others--as components of a comprehensive program to support advising professionals.
