Building Advisor Competency: Introduction to the NACADA Academic Advising Core Competencies Model (NACADA Webinar)
Wednesday, December 13, 2017
2:00 PM-3:00 PM
In the summer of 2015, NACADA Professional Development Committee (PDC) Incoming Chair Teri Farr was tasked with leading the PDC team with looking forward into the future of the academic advising profession to identify what competencies academic advisors will need to have, how these competencies could best be articulated by the association, and how they can be used by the association to provide professional development opportunities for NACADA's membership. Over the next 18 months, the team conducted a review of the available advising literature, spoke with subject matter experts, consulted with a wide array of NACADA constituencies, and crafted the NACADA Academic Advising Core Competencies Model. The model was approved by the association's Board of Directors in March 2017 and made available to all advising professionals on the PDC webpage. PDC members then began Phase 2 of this initiative – identification and review of NACADA resources currently available to assist academic advising personnel with competency development and capacity building.
In this NACADA Advisor Training and Development Commission-sponsored webinar, Teri Farr is joined by PDC members to discuss the NACADA Academic Advising Core Competencies Model. They will share some of their experiences with the model's development process, the thoughts underlying its framework and core competency areas, and the ongoing project of resource identification and development.
