Engagement - Let's Do It!
To meet the challenge of engagement presented to NACADA members by current President David Spight, the Board of Directors has developed a free Summer Webinar Series revolving around four avenues that focus on engagement in NACADA and the advising profession.
Links to the webinars will be available to members within a week of each webinar. Stay tuned for more information on this webpage and on the official NACADA Facebook page (“like” NACADA if you are on Facebook!). The free webinars will be posted to this NACADA page after the initial broadcast for continual viewing. Thanks for participating! Let's get to learning!
Get Engaged in the Profession – Let’s Talk Core Values!
June 20th, 1:00 pm (CDT)
Amy Sannes, Joanne Damminger, Jayne Drake, Drew Puroway, Casey Self
The first webinar in the series will focus on what should be included in a “core values” document for advising professionals. The panelists will share information from discussions at the Region Conferences and are asking for input on this collection of ideas. The goal is to provide another avenue for listening to NACADA members. What do you feel are the most important values that guide our practice?
*The Core Values Review Committee defines “core values” as beliefs that influence how we act.
Learn Another Approach – Let’s Talk Advising!
July 19th, 1:00 pm (CDT)

“One Size Does Not Fit All.” Consider using a multitude of approaches in your advising environments to match the needs of the individual learner. Join in on a discussion with NACADA leaders and members to discuss how advisors use different approaches to adapt to the changing needs of students.

This will be a prime opportunity to ask questions and receive feedback from those who have been in your shoes!
