Understanding Successes in and Challenges to Advising in the Major
Focus groups, interviews, and surveys all can be effective ways of understanding students’ learning experiences. The Academic Advising Center (AAC) has long collected useful information about undergraduate pre-major advising in Trinity College. This session asks, how can individual academic departments develop their own surveys to understand advising and mentorship within the major? Dr. David Rabiner and Ms. Kelly Cottrell, Director and Assistant Dir. of the AAC, respectively, will join our conversation about advising practice and the benefits and challenges of survey design and administration. The Trinity Office of Assessment also will present a new Qualtrics survey bank of advising questions, from which program officers can efficiently construct their own questionnaires. (Detailed instructions will be provided.) It may be helpful to bring a laptop or tablet to follow along in Qualtrics.
This session is sponsored by Trinity Office of Assessment. Contact Jennifer Hill (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
Light snacks will be provided.
