Get smarter about asking the right questions and identifying trends in your advising and student success data.
Academic advisors are consistently asked to do more to support the retention and student success mission of your institution. Having actionable data to support that mission and set priorities is critical if academic advisors are to deliver on the expectation set for them. Learn how you can help your institution present data to make it actionable for individual academic advisors. Your institution needs a scalable process for understanding the mission critical action needed by advisors, a thoughtful assessment of the data that is available, an informed view of where needed data may be found, and a keen understanding of the need for partners around campus to come together to present data that easily becomes action.
Learning Outcome: After participating in this online training, you will be able to better use data in your advising practice.
During this webinar you will be engaged in an activity surrounding three scenarios to determine:
Scenario 1: Demographic trends and achievement gaps
Scenario 2: How one student’s grades can help us advise another student
Scenario 3: Non-academic indicators and academic success
