Faculty Advising. Published in The New Advisor Guidebook Toolkit 5 materials were written by faculty advisors for faculty advisors. The authors provide faculty with a roadmap to impact students’ academic decisions. Faculty who do not have the time to read an entire advising book will find this chapter and its accompanying checklists (e.g., ‘teaching students to use resources’ and ‘student information a faculty advisor should learn’) helpful in setting and achieving their advising goals.
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.
