We are planning for a November 6th webinar!!

Topic: Academic Advising and First-Year Students: The Power of Purpose and Movement toward Self-Efficacy (DW85)

Higher education professionals are called upon to recognize the new experiences students face as they transition into college during their first year. As students learn to think and act for themselves, instead of relying upon authority figures to prescribe their choices, they encounter increased responsibility for their own learning and growth. While navigating new academic systems, traditionally-aged students also move through the initial stages of Chickering’s 7 Vectors of psychosocial development. As new college students develop competence, learn to manage their emotions, and move through autonomy to interdependence, they can lay a strong foundation for academic success.

*Please remember that MIACADA will be hosting this webinar in various locations, so please look for registration link shortly.
