Virtual Advising: No Parking? No Problem. How Technology can take the hassle out of getting a tassel.
Coordinating Presenter: Kasandrea Sereno Monday, March 17
8:30 AM - 9:20 AM 331 - Convention Center
Social media and the digital generation are changing the landscape of student affairs like never before. The boundaries between people are disappearing as technology makes it possible for collaboration across physical space, bringing both efficiencies and challenges to our work. In this session we will cover how one advising office made the leap into online advising including virtual advising chats, and the use of several social media channels to engage students. We will discuss the process of building the program, cost, challenges, and the successes of each platform, as well as the student reactions to the new services.
