Technology in Advising Community

The purpose of NACADA's Technology in Advising Community is to help academic advisors, faculty advisors, and advising administrators understand the impact of using technologies in advising, including:  

  • Online communication & virtual advising
  • Degree audits & web registration
  • Student information systems & electronic advising notes    
  • Social and connected spaces for innovative staff/faculty resources
  • Understand the ideas and trends of how technology is being utilized in higher education

Our activities include:

  • annual review and sponsorship of national conference proposals
  • solicitation of national and regional conference presentations and workshops 
  • compiling web resources for advisors, arranged by topics
  • organizing Twitter chats throughout the year

This community seeks to serve as a central resource and clearinghouse for information about innovations and issues in academic advising technology. Through our webpage, listserv (TECADV-L), and our social media platforms including our NACADA Technology in Advising Facebook Group, on Twitter (using the hashtag #AcAdv or #AdvTech), and at national and regional conferences, we actively seek to encourage NACADA members to engage in topical discussions and activities related to the uses of technology in advising.
