2017 Ontario Academic Advising Professional (OAAP) Conference

“All Together Now” – Integrating Advising & Student Support Services


DEADLINE: Friday, June 16, 2017

Conference Theme: Integrated & Holistic Advising Approaches

A coordinated approach to delivering advising services helps to create a more seamless experience for our students. A number of Ontario institutions are moving toward and/or implementing more integrated and/or coordinated approaches to advising service delivery.

  • What is your approach to advising practice and/or advisor professional development?
  • Have you (or has your advising office) partnered with another unit outside of advising to provide a new, more integrated service or event for your students?
  • Are you integrating new technology or new tools into your advising practice?
  • How have you integrated new learning, a new skill, new advising techniques &/or theory into your advising practice?
