Gentle nudges: supporting faculty as they advise 
Anne-Marie Lerner | University of Wisconsin-Platteville 
Faculty advising is an important component to undergraduate education, whether the university has an advising model that includes formal or informal faculty advising. Unfortunately, many universities do not include advising as part of tenure considerations for faculty, or else not assessed much (if at all). As a faculty member, I have found some methods that have been effective to support faculty as they develop advising skills and supportive mindsets. During this session, we will discuss organizing resources for faculty, providing a roadmap for advising sessions, and helpful prompts to support faculty.

AP Credit Discussion 
Sheila Hurt | Purdue University
Learn about Sheila’s surprising findings regarding AP credit and repeating college coursework and how they might change the way you think about advising incoming students with AP credit. There will be plenty of time for questions, along with a review of the data for those interested. If you want a preview, read Sheila’s recent co-authored article in the NACADA Journal, “Should Students with AP Credit Repeat Coursework in College? A Multilevel Analysis.”
