Summer Advisor and Supervisor Symposium 2015

The 2015 Division of Student Affairs Summer Advisor and Supervisor Symposium on July 16 was a great success! This event provided professional development around student learning, leadership, and reflection for student organization advisors, student employee supervisors, and those who engage students in deep learning experiences.

 

Following the symposium, staff will be able to:

  • Define terminology around leadership and learning
  • Implement reflection with students and staff
  • Articulate how their contributions connect to the DSA Strategic Plan
  • Better utilize student employees’ strengths and skills
  • Create High Impact Practices

 

We were very pleased to have Maria Macik, Associate Instructional Consultant at the Texas A&M Center for Teaching Excellence, as our keynote speaker. Her presentation, "Reflection across the University: Helping Students Tell Their Stories," recognizes that the student story is a complex one. In addition to academics, some of the activities that students are involved in can include membership in organizations, leadership experiences, employment, and various other educational opportunities, such as student research or internships. As mentors, coaches, advisors, and educators, we can help students tell their stories by encouraging them to make connections across these various experiences. In an engaging session, Maria will share  the role reflection plays in telling the student story and in fostering student development and learning.
