Event Description

Evidence-Based Best Practices and Practical Insights for Cost-Effective Online Advising

"Today's college students are much more tech-savvy than their predecessors-many of them expect everything to be delivered through technology. Although there are challenges, online advising provides a surprisingly efficient and cost-effective avenue to communicate productively with students in a unique and personal way - and in a way many have grown accustomed to it, in other areas of their lives. In a very real sense, this is the future of academic advising. It is important advisors know how to do it well." -- Dr.Aaron W. Hughey

With ever developing online technologies, student advising is less in academic offices and more on the web, and students have the liberty to gain access to tools and advisers anytime, anywhere to succeed. Increasing demands for more online support courses from students and decreasing budgets have led advisors to serve more students online. Online and campus-based students are often faced with common barriers and limitations and thus, advising students with various modalities can be a challenging task.

Further, as advisors are engrossed with managing a huge amount of phone calls and emails, they run the risk of disregarding some of the critical developmental advising strategies that are very important for effective advising.

Join this information-packed webinar by expert speaker Aaron W. Hughey to understand how the online advising process can best be developed, implemented, maintained and adapted in a variety of different higher education environments with diverse populations of students who possess different levels of technological proficiency. The webinar will also deal with common issues that sometime impede the online advising process as well as on practical solutions for dealing with those inevitable concerns. Though the use of technology is important to provide services on online advising, issues inevitably crop up - issues related to connectivity, security and clarity on the exchanged information. Aaron will take up these issues and present real-life examples for participants to encourage them and help them provide input and feedback

This session will provide evidence-based best practices and related information and insights that can be used immediately by a wide range of administrators, faculty and staff interested in implementing cost-effective strategies for enhancing the success of their online classes and programs.
