Do you like to read and participate in book clubs with other readers? NACADA Reads, an online book club, offers participants professional development experience, exposure to research on critical trends, and a chance to develop the habit of scholarly inquiry.
Join us for a free NACADA Reads webinar on Tuesday, October 27, at 12 noon (Central) on “Advising is Advising: Toward Defining the Practice and Scholarship of Academic Advising” by Janet K. Schulenberg and Marie J. Lindhorst.
This pivotal article was the 2015 NACADA Annual Conference “Common Reading” and is a terrific choice for NACADA Reads. Schulenberg and Lindhorst raise important questions about the true nature of academic advising and the professional status of its practitioners. This year’s article can be downloaded HERE.
