Where Are We Now?

Read this, please.

I wonder where we are with this now? I know I’ve been asking “why not” since I started using facebook in my daily advising praxis back in 2005. But I suspect more of the SA collaborative and academic techies out there have been actively pursuing the “why not” approach easily since this blog post first went up over a year ago–I wonder what the answers are that they have come up with to the “why not” question.

That’s all, really.

About Art

I've been a higher education professional for over 15 years and an Academic Advising administrator for the past eight of those. I have a background in exploratory student advising and have spent a great deal of time guiding students through contemplating their personal college-to-career pathways. I've published, presented, and consulted on the intersection of social media and academia and am a firm believer in social media's power as a tool for engagement rather than solely information delivery. I've worked at public and private institutions as well as 2-year colleges and 4-year universities. I believe in Academic Advising as a teaching and learning activity, that learner-centered education is the key to students' academic success, and that as long as we keep students' individual goals and success at the center of our decision-making process, the problem of college-level student attrition can be solved.
