An exploration of studies, techniques, and methods for advising and helping skills in higher education and student affairs administration.
This course is designed in accordance with the CAS standards and guidelines for master’s level student affairs professional preparation programs (Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education, 2015) as articulated in subpart 5b.3: individual and group strategies. As such, seminar students will learn methods of advising and helping as well as how to assess, design, implement, and evaluate developmentally appropriate strategies for working with students and campus organizations
As a result of the semester's experience, students are expected to be able to demonstrate the knowledge and skills necessary to design and evaluate effective educational interventions needed for working with campus individuals and groups. In addition, students are expected to be able to identify and appropriately refer persons who need additional resources. Class attendance and engagement is extremely important.
Evaluation of students' learning centers on the quality of their reading journal, personal development plan, development of and participation in UVM undergraduate student leader training, and a major paper examining in depth aspects of helping and advising in the student affairs profession.
