Our focus is the self-reflexive work of examining the theoretical, philosophical and historical foundations of academic advising, in addition to supporting theory building initiatives and their applications. We welcome the study of academic advising from any theoretical vantage point and look to incorporate theory in new ways. We seek to promote the study and understanding of theory, philosophy, and the historical foundations related to academic advising, and to support and encourage conference presentations, publications, and research in these areas. We seek to develop and advance philosophical and historical reflection in the field of academic advising both within NACADA and outside associations, administration, faculty and other stakeholders.
Join a TPHAS Action Group!
Along with the work to identify and schedule speakers for TPH talks, three priorities have been identified for 2022:
- Advising History
- TPHAC Communications, and
- Partnering with Other Advising Communities
The idea was that we would organize ourselves for the year around these priorities. Action Groups would work together to sort out and accomplish the vision for these priorities.
We'd love to have your voice and perspectives, so we put together a Google form for you to express your interests: https://forms.gle/ZCZysLVSRpxxx8tD9
We hope to see you at the TPH talk Thursday and as part of one of our Action Groups! If you have any ideas, questions, or comments, please don't hesitate to reach out!
