Participant Feedback

  • The discussion of various theories related to advising and how they can be translated into practice with students was most beneficial. It allowed me to take the knowledge gained into my advising sessions.

  • The concept of using developmental academic advising as a strategy not a theory. The readings and assignments really engaged me in the course material and provided a context for my work as a scholar-practitioner. Additionally, the assignments and discussion forums enabled me to gain a deeper understanding of the practical implications of academic advising (when using theory to inform practice).

  • I really placed great value on the feedback Dr. Steele provided me during this tutorial. It was insightful, positive and reaffirming (in terms of transferable skills to academic advising). Additionally, the feedback and questions he posed led me to digging deeper and thinking through the concepts that we were learning.

  • Great class! Loved how it was organized and especially loved the rubrics for each assignment. It made it very clear what the expectations were. Thank you.

  • "I really appreciate all of your [the moderator] input and time that you have put into making this course a great learning experience for me."

  • "It [the eTutorial] was very useful and well organized."

  • The tutorial was very helpful. I plan to do more in the coming months. 

  • Regarding what did the participant find most beneficial:

    The articles, tool kits, resources, references, websites... EVERYTHING! The information was organized in an easy way to read and understand. I loved every minute doing this eTutorial! I also loved the case studies and typing out how I would work with the student. It helped me analyze my approach and the questions I ask. I loved being able to read and respond to other people's responses.

  • I thoroughly enjoyed this eTutorial - it was one of the most meaningful professional development opportunities I have had and would strongly recommend it for anyone.

  • Overall, really enjoyed the course! Appreciated the relevant material and the small time commitment. This made the course very worthwhile and I'm excited to take another!
