Advising

Registration for Second Five Week Courses ends TUESDAY (10/1/13)

Please touch base with advisees who have dropped courses.

Of particular interest for FY students who are in need of help building academic skills is
LSC-199: Visual Literacy. Course description: We live in an image saturated culture, but are we visually literate? What do images try to communicate, and how do they do so? Working with original works of art in the Augustana College Art Museum, as well as images from popular media, students will develop skills in formal/visual analysis, and learn to translate visual language into a textual one.

Student Learning Outcomes Conversations

I've heard from some advisors who had nearly all of their advisees come to the Symposium Day advising session (how did you do that?), while other advisors had only a handful of their advisees show. We plan to keep the group advising session at the beginning of each Symposium Day this year, because we are working on our HLC Quality Initiative Project throughout the year. Symposium Day provides a time and space for group advising sessions that can be difficult to carve out, otherwise.

So what about the students that did not attend the Symposium Day Student Learning Outcome conversation? These students also need to be introduced to the Student Learning Outcomes. Advisors can discuss outcomes during one-on-one meetings, set up additional group meetings, assign homework, etc. If you need more handouts or bookmarks, let me know.

We will be rolling out the new Co-curricular transcript during group advising meetings on Winter Symposium Day. You will hear much more about the co-curricular transcript during winter term.
 
Have a great week,
