The SRD representatives, John Akana and Robert Walljasper* analyzed their department’s practices and built on an in-class academic advising practice that was good but needed to be improved and standardized. The goal of the in-class academic advising sessions is to introduce tools and best practices to students as they enter the program. The slides included here are used in the HMGT 1101 class and a modified version is used in the HMGT 3501 class, a course that includes many transfer students from AAS programs.
Does your plan include in-class advising sessions? What courses would you include in your in-class advising sessions?
*If you plan to create your own in-class advising session based on these slides, please credit John and Robert’s work as inspiration. They are both willing to speak about their philosophy or objectives with you.
