Participant Feedback

  • 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.

  • Thanks for the opportunity. The course was extremely beneficial!

  • 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.

  • Jennifer [Joslin] was professional and outstanding in all her communication with me. Clear, direct, encouraging
