advising as teaching

Academic advising has played a vital role in the post-secondary education process since the inception of the academy. Historically, universities have imbedded advising processes into academic experiences as exemplified by the “Oxford Model.” As accessibility to, and persistence through colleges grew, many institutions began to restructure the advising experience in manners that separated it from the formal classroom-based education structure. However, the desired learning outcomes associated with the academic advising processes remain and students benefit from learning-centered advising sessions.

The Advising as Teaching Series is designed to highlight the alignment between academic advising and the educational mission of UAB relative to student growth and development.  Each session is designed in a workshop format such that they provide advisors opportunities to network with peers and practice skills associated with NACADA’s research-based best practices in academic advising.
