I’ve Been Quiet Lately #SteepLearningCurve

Greetings all,

I’ve been wrestling with getting up to speed at my new job, so I haven’t made much time for blogging. I just posted the following, though, at the NACADA Commission on Undeclared and Exploratory Student Advising (CUES) Blog and thought I should share it here, too. I’m trying to ease my way out of thinking solely about CUES topics, especially since my new role is as director of the entire advising program and not one simply focused on Undeclared and Exploratory populations. I’m having limited success at removing the CUES filter entirely, but I think we can easily use the specific CUES “doorway” to enter a conversation about academic advising in total:



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.
