Advising as Academic Coaching
Advising as Academic Coaching. The chapter ‘Advising as Coaching’ from the Academic Advising Approaches book, along with the Voices from the Field article ‘Career Advising: A New paradigm’ from The New Advisor Guidebook, address two hot topics (academic coaching and career advising) in one common reading. “Academic Coaching” is a ‘hot’ term in the advising community but also is one of its least understood. Toolkit 4 materials not only explain academic coaching but provide advisors with questions they can utilize to ‘coach’ their students to success.
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.
