Building Advisor Competency: Developing a Profession of Advising through Training, Development, and Scholarship (NACADA Webinar)

Wednesday, November 15, 2017

2:00 PM-3:00 PM
Close-Hipp 003


In this webinar, sponsored by the NACADA Advisor Training and Development Commission, commission members will build on that foundation and address concepts surrounding the development paths of academic advisors and the advancement of academic advising as a profession.

Our presenters will discuss what it means to be “a professional” in the academic advising field, including the characteristics and behaviors of an advising professional, and how progressive training and development of advisors (new, mid-level, advanced) and the scholarship of advising (i.e., service, presenting, teaching, publishing, research) contribute to this understanding. They will provide suggestions for how advisors can assess their current professional path and create a development path based on the recently developed NACADA Academic Advising Core Competencies Model. Existing NACADA resources designed to facilitate and improve training, development, and scholarship of academic advisors will be discussed.
