As part of ongoing faculty and professional academic advisor training and development, the Student Success Center is pleased to host three webinars this spring detailing the NACADA (The Global Community for Academic Advising) Academic Advising Core Competencies Model (2017).
Please join us for the first webinar in the series on Feb. 1 from 1 – 2 p.m. in the Memorial Union Lecture Bowl to look at the model’s conceptual component. The competencies included in the conceptual component provide context for academic advising. “Too often overlooked in training and development programs, the conceptual component addresses the ideas and theories that academic advisors must understand about students, their institutions, themselves, and their environment in order to appropriately convey the critical nature of academic advising to their stakeholders.” (NACADA 2017)
- Thursday, Feb. 1 – Building Advisor Competency: Conceptual Understanding Component
- Tuesday, March 6 – Building Advisor Competency: Informational Knowledge Component
- Wednesday, April 4 – Building Advisor Competency: Relational Skills Component
All three webinars will take place in the Memorial Union Lecture Bowl from 1 – 2 p.m. Feel free to attend one or more of the events. Pre-registration is not required.
