A Deeper Look at Incorporating Coaching Conversations into Academic Advising Practice
In February 2019, the Academic Coaching Advising Community sponsored the first NACADA webinar on this topic: Incorporating Coaching Conversations into Academic Advising Practice. Presenters discussed the basic premises of coaching and several models for implementing coaching in a higher education setting. They shared key coaching concepts, relevant research, pertinent video clips, and stories of educators who have successfully implemented coaching on their campuses in unique ways. At the request of participants of that event, Gail Fairfield (Indiana University), William Johnson (University of North Carolina-Greensboro), Kathleen Shea Smith (University of Oklahoma), and Linnette White (Indiana University) returned to take an expanded look at how coaching practices can enhance the advising relationship and move students forward on their pathways to success. In this 60-minute videocast Coaching 2.0 presentation, the presenters address how to incorporate a coaching way of being into a range of advising contexts and timeframes, from one-minute coaching moments to full coaching sessions. Viewers will learn how coaching practices can address barriers to completion that have been identified in the literature, take a deeper look at coaching models that were introduced in the first webinar, and hear about the activities and progress of the NACADA Academic Coaching Advising Community.
