#AcAdv Chat: Common Reading Discussion

Hello #AcAdv Chat-ers!

To mix things up a bit on the #acadv chat discussion thread, our next LIVE chat on Tuesday, November 19, 2014 from 12-1 pm CT will involve an academic advising “common reading.” The purpose of a common reading is engage faculty and practitioners in academic advising in a dialogue about literature and research. This method of professional development encourages scholarly engagement, reflection, problem-solving, and communication among academic advising peers (Schulenberg, Larson & Bermudez, 2010).

For next weeks #AcAdv Chat: Common Reading Discussion, we decided to use a recent academic advising publication from the NACADA Journal (Thanks for the suggestion, @RDScheckel!):
