Reminder: advising mini-conference Wednesday
The University of Wisconsin-Parkside Committee on Advising and the Advising and Career Center invite faculty and staff to "Paths to Collaborative Advising: Beyond Just Lifting a Flag," a mini-conference on advising Wednesday, Jan. 30. Featuring UW La Crosse Psychology Department chair Betsy Morgan, the program is from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Student Center Ballroom.
In May 2012, the National Academic Advising Association completed an assessment of advising at UW-Parkside. The results of this report and recommendations for a new advising model will be presented for feedback and discussion.
UW-Parkside's recent reorganization to the four college model offers the university an opportunity to enhance advising practices and create an advising structure to support the needs of both the student and the advisor. Dr. Morgan will discuss the critical role of the advisor and the collaborative efforts needed to support the collective and connective learning of our students. A member of the UWL faculty for 20 years, Dr. Morgan's research has included the topic of advising practices and assessment.
University Committee Chair Jonathan Shailor"strongly encourage" colleagues to attend the mini-conference.
"There are relatively few occasions when we are all called together as a body to engage in a significant discussion about matters that are so central to our mission. This is one of them," Shailor stated in an email to campus.
"Paths to Collaborative Advising: Beyond Just Lifting a Flag," a mini-conference on advising is open to all UW-Parkside faculty and staff. Lunch is provided.
