For those of you interested in advising and technology – let me share with you an online, professional development opportunity that is on the horizon. At the beginning of August @NACADA is hosting an #AdvTech Summer Special Web Events. The week will have five FREE 60-minute virtual sessions sponsored by the NACADA Technology in Advising Commission to offer you ideas and resources for technology in advising.
Here’s the line up:
August 6: The Speech that Was Never A Blog Post: The Trends and Future for Technology in Advising
August 8: Advising Technology Myth-busting: Guidance and Challenges for Using Social Media on Campus
August 9: Advising Reflections & Sharing: Blogging to Support Our Profession & Student Learning Outcomes
August 10: Technology Adoption & Life Cycle: From Implementation to Evaluation of Technology in Advising
During the NACADA TechTalks, I will do my best to be the host with the most for each panel by following the #AdvTech Twitter stream and comments in Adobe Connect. With the help of @NACADA we will post the recorded webcasts and archive the conversation for those who cannot attend. For more information about the sessions, #AdvTech panelists, and how to connect – visit the @NACADA Blog post about the TechTalks.
If you have further questions or things YOU want to ask any of the panelists during the week, be sure to let me know.
