Incorporating ePortfolios into Advising Practice


Advisors are increasingly adopting innovative advising techniques to enhance their work with students. Embracing a new era of blended advising practice, this presentation highlights the process of combining First Year of Studies’ (FYS) Advising ePortfolios with traditional advising methods. In addition to enhancing our ability as professional advisors to engage first-year students in the advising process, incorporating ePortfolios in advising provides us the opportunity to teach students how to integrate and be intentional about their college learning experiences. You will also hear about the benefits and challenges of using a Blended Advising Model and best practices for transforming advising with target populations (e.g. first generation, students of concern).
