Event: NACADA National Conference, October 4-7 2012
From Indie Darling to Billboard Topper: Advisor Training and Professional Development in a Multi-Campus System. Effective advisor training is the foundation of any successful advising program, yet even the most basic training is absent at many institutions (Koring, 2005, NACADA Clearinghouse). This session will take you through the development of an advisor training program based on McCllelan's 2007 'Content Components for Advisor Training: Revisited.'. See first-hand how a training program was organically grown and consciously planned to address key components such as advising and career theory along with relational development. Technologies used include asynchronous online courses, a mentorship program, synchronous webinar series and detailed informational supports. Advisor training - it's not just reading degree audits anymore.
