Academic Advising in an Era of Instant Gratification: The Pathway to Empowerment

MIACADA locations details are still being worked through but expect to see sign-up in the upcoming weeks.

Webinar Details:
Thursday, April 18, 2019

Time: 2:00pm - 3:00pm

Webinar Overview:
The rise of the digital age has brought transformation at both the individual and societal levels. With constantly changing forms of technology literally at our fingertips, we must continually learn new ways to access information and connect with one another. This 24/7 access to people and things all over the world with a simple click of a button has given rise to a culture of instant gratification. Expectations of rapid response have increased demands on education professionals, who are required to evolve with their students and “meet them where they are” whenever possible. Advising personnel daily face new challenges to meet student needs and often feel pressured to move at a pace that may feel too rapid to produce optimal outcomes.
