Hello NACADA Region 3 Tech Seminar!

I am looking forward to joining in (virtually) to the NACADA Region 3 Technology Seminar is this weekend at the University of Kentucky campus.

Karen Thurmond will be facilitating this hands on, interactive technology seminar that focuses on introducing web-based technologies to the field of academic advising. Participants will learn how to use these tools and begin brainstorming ideas and how to implement these online resources into academic advising practices. A few advising online tools include:

  • wikis
  • social bookmarking
  • social networking
  • online collaboration tools

Here is the action packed seminar schedule. I look forward to seeing a few of you tomorrow morning. 🙂
