P1: Making the Leap to Presenting at Conferences: From Idea to Execution
noon-3:00 pm | Thursday, February 27
Megan Denney, University of Oklahoma

Developing ideas for conference presentations and preparing proposals and abstracts can be an interesting undertaking. After a proposal is accepted comes the endeavor of crafting an effective presentation, and the even more exciting experience of delivering it to your academic advising colleagues. Fortunately, this is not an endeavor that has to be pursued without guidance. Through a highly interactive workshop led by advisors who have presented at state, region, and national conferences, attendees will formulate presentation ideas, draft an abstract and/or a proposal, and discuss how to prepare for the experience of presenting for fellow academic advising professionals. Each participant should leave with an idea, abstract/proposal draft, or a plan for presenting at a future conference.

Articulate a personal philosophy of academic advising.

P2: NACADA Orientation for First-Time Conference Attendees - FREE
3:15-4:15 pm | Thursday, February 27
