Student Planner Training

Are you afraid of the Student Planner area of Degree Works?  Do you mostly pretend it doesn’t exist so you won’t have to use it?  If so, you are in good company. Most of us are uncomfortable/unfamiliar with this tool and so not likely to use it with students. This step by step walk through of Student Planner basics will help you start facing your fears and expanding your advising repertoire. The Student Planner area of Degree Works is a powerful tool for helping students see their way to graduation and for signaling your department course rotations. Get your questions answered and consider how you might use this tool in your department.

Cookies & Conversation

 
Advising & Inclusive Pedagogies

Join us for, well, cookies and conversation.  This month: a brief introduction to Critical Inclusive Teaching Principles as shared in last year’s TCLT workshop, followed by open discussion of the inclusive principles of transparency, academic belonging, critically engaging difference, and structured interactions in the context of advising.  How can we apply critical inclusive teaching practices beyond the classroom? How might advising benefit from inclusive pedagogies? 

RSVP FOR ONE SESSION: NOVEMBER 30 at 2-3:30PM

Advising & Integrative Learning

Join us for, well, cookies and conversation.  This month: a brief introduction to principles and practices of integrative learning and an early look at results of the Signature Assignments Academy Team pilot study, followed by open discussion of integrative and reflective practices in the context of advising. How can we use integrative learning strategies beyond the classroom to foster learning transfer? How might advising benefit from the lessons of signature assignments?

Celebrate This Year, Plan for Next: Advising, Inclusive Pedagogies, Integrative Learning

Join us for, well, cookies and conversation.  This month: we combine and return to the topics of the Cookies and Conversation sessions of November (“Advising and Inclusive Pedagogies”) and March (“Advising and Integrative Learning”) to spark a whole new conversation. We’ll have a brief recap of inclusive and integrative practices and open up a larger conversation about advising, including what we want to celebrate this year and what we hope to try next year.  What can you learn from inclusive and integrative pedagogical practices? What were your advising successes this year?  What do you think would advance your personal or departmental advising?  What would you like to see next for advising in CAS?
