60 min – May 9, 2018 (Wednesday)
Panelists: Teri Farr (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), Theresa Hitchcock (University of Louisville), Erin Justyna (Texas Tech University), Jennifer Joslin (Kansas State University)
Throughout this 2017-2018 NACADA Webinar series on Building Advisor Competency, our presenters have shared information about the new NACADA Academic Advising Core Competencies Model – the history of its development, the framework that underlies it, and the explanation of the individual competencies. From the first release of the Model, advising professionals and administrators have asked, “So now what do we do?” and “How can we implement these ideas on my campus?” In this 60-min concluding presentation for the Webinar season, Teri Farr (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), Theresa Hitchcock (University of Louisville), Erin Justyna (Texas Tech University), and Jennifer Joslin (Kansas State University) answer those questions. As they explain how the Core Competencies provide a roadmap for professional development, they discuss ways to integrate the competencies into advising practice and develop a concrete, intentional professional development plan. Whether you are a lone advisor in an academic department, part of a committee charged with designing training and development for advisors, or an administrator responsible for advisor development, this presentation will help you take the Core Competencies and apply them on your campus.
