Title: CVG: Collaborative, Valuable and Game-Changing: Transition Theories to Develop Academic Programming
Lead Presenter: Christopher Kirchhof
Date: October 07, 2021    Time: 2:15 pm - 3:15 pm
Room: 207/208, DECC
Abstract: This presentation will outline how two institutions use transitional theories to develop and implement programming for students new to the institution. Using Schlossberg's Transition Theory and the Gullahorn 'W Curve' Transition Model, one school developed and implemented a transfer seminar course. The course utilizes peer mentors to help anticipate student challenges during the transfer experience and both in and out of the classroom. Utilizing Astin's Student Involvement Theory, the second institution created an exploratory studies course to expose students to academic departments and faculty, career and professional development centers, experiential learning opportunities, and involvement activities. This presentation will serve as an introduction for new advisors to transitional theories and outline methods of implementation. Session attendees will be able to share their practices and suggestions.
