Proactive Academic Advising
Proactive Academic Advising. The Academic Advising Approaches chapter ‘Proactive Advising’ teaches academic advisors how to reach out to students targeted as “at-risk” by predictive analytics software and early alerts. Toolkit 2’s accompanying New Advisor Guidebook ‘Voices from the Field’ article teaches a decision making framework easily used with students facing decisions that affect their academic careers.
Each e-download Toolkit includes the materials needed for an effective professional development ‘hot topic workshop’. Included are: 1) a chapter from a best-selling NACADA/Jossey-Bass book, 2) reader learning outcomes focused on important themes, 3) activities/questions to guide discussions, and 4) support resources (i.e., case studies, checklists, or questions) that improve advising practice.
Colleagues who purchased this toolkit have used it for individual professional development and as a common reading via their campus learning management system (e.g., Canvas, Blackboard) and in workshops.
