P1: Flip Your Advising and Tutoring! Making Your Interactions with Students a Teaching and Learning Activity
1-4 pm | Monday, May 2
George Steele, The Ohio State University

Do you want your students to come to your advising session better prepared? Why don't you use a Learning Management System (LMS) or an e-Portfolio and adopt a blended teaching and learning approach for advising? This session will help you achieve this through addressing: 1) use of learning outcomes, 2) Internet advising resources, 3) development of an advising curriculum, 4) consideration of the implication for delivery and practice of a flipped advising approach, 5) and how this approach can improve the evaluation of students' learning and assist with program assessment. Participants will have access to the LMS used in the presentation for up to six months for future reference and access to resources. The relationship between a flipped advising approach and NACADA's Concept of Advising will be highlighted throughout the presentation.  

Legal guidelines of advising practice, including privacy regulations and confidentiality.
Theory relevant to academic advising.
Facilitate problem solving, decision-making, meaning-making, planning, and goal setting.
