Abstract: Connecting with Online Adult Learners: Transitioning to a Proactive Advising Approach

As the percentage of students taking online courses continues to grow, college advising units are forced to retool in order to better serve the unique needs created by distance education. Emerging from this structural shift is a fundamental question for advisors: How can we best connect with online students in order to establish, develop, and maintain an effective and trusting relationship during their academic careers? In this presentation, a team of online academic advisors will share their experiences working though this question in the midst of structural changes and competing priorities. They will review how they implemented an intentional transition to a proactive advising approach, designed to improve outreach to and advising of online adult learners.
