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!):
Since some of our #AcAdv Community members might not be part of the NACADA association (for journal access) the author, Keith L. Powers (a.k.a. @KeithPowers_USI
) has graciously shared the pre-print version
for the purpose of next Tuesday’s (11/19) #AcAdv Chat. This pre-print manuscript is openly being shared HERE
, with the caveat that this manuscript is quite different from the final product, the NACADA Journal publication, however the research findings are the same. Thank you for your support and we hope you can join the conversation, Keith!
We hope that you have a chance to READ this article (in either format) in advance of our conversation on Tuesday. We are excited to hear your thoughts, discussions, and ideas about how this scholarly piece can be applied to your academic advising practice. If you have questions for the author, or about this piece, please tweet at @acadvchat
in advance of our chat on Tuesday. Tweet you soon!
