Spring 2013 Advising Workshops

Here's a list of Spring 2013 Advising Workshops . . .


We have two Advising Workshops schedule for Friday, February 22 as part of the Changing Classroom Cultures conference.  These sessions are:
·        PTK’s C4 Workshop (2/22, 12:30-1:45, AT 211).  Faculty are usually unaware of all the various types of information available to students on PS. At this workshop PTK members will demonstrate PS from a “student’s viewpoint.”
·        Transfer Center: Transfer Advising Training Program (2/22, 2:00-3:15, AT 211).  This workshop will introduce faculty to the newly revised transfer advising training program. We hope to provide you with the tools you need to be involved in the educational process of students as they consider furthering their education after BCTC
