2018 Call for Proposals
2018 3rd Annual California Collaborative Academic Advising and Counseling Conference
Deadline for Submission
December 4, 2017 at 11:59 PM
October 31, 2017 – Early Decision Deadline
Address challenges and showcase successes of eAdvising; cultivate systems-wide professional development for academic advisors, counselors, faculty and staff; and explore evidence based innovations and advances in California academic advising.
Criteria for selection of presentation
Proposals will be evaluated based on relevance to current issues in California advising, appeal to conference participants, creativity, ingenuity, and applicability for participants after the conference. We are seeking a wide range of presentation topics relating to academic advising from a variety of advising professionals in our state. Proposals should be evidence based. Relevant topics for this year include: Retention and Graduation initiatives, Transitions and Pathways (Community College to UC or CSU, or vice versa), advising assessment. Special Student Population support, collaborations on and off campus, eAdvising, and Professional development.
Eligibility for submission
Anyone involved in advising (administration, faculty, advisors, counselors, graduate students and administrative staff) is invited to submit a proposal. We encourage novices and experienced presenters alike. Share your research, best practices, or techniques with colleagues throughout California.
Proposals should include
Your presentation title, learning objectives, and desired format (i.e. topic discussion, panel, etc.). Please include a brief abstract describing your presentation, an outline of the presentation, the desired learning objectives, and any other information (e.g. brief lit review or supporting research) that will assist the reviewers in assessing your proposal. Abstracts will be included in the conference program. Please limit abstracts to 135 words including the title.
Conference sessions will be concurrent sessions. Concurrent sessions can be in the format of a topic presentation or a panel discussion. Topic presentations discuss current issues in advising. Some are based on research, some share best practices, and some are developmental, while others are theoretical. The format should combine lecture with discussion. Panel discussions are designed to explain or involve various presenters from different institutions looking at the same topic from various angles. They do not include several presenters from one institution speaking on the same topic. If that is your presentation, it will not be considered for a topic presentation. All concurrent sessions will be approximately 60 minutes long and a projector, projector screen and internet access will be available. Although the program committee will make every effort to honor your requested format option, the committee may recommend an alternate format in order to accept as many proposals as possible.
