Texas Tech Advisors’ Forum

2017-2018 Call for Proposals

Academic advising is critical to student success, retention and matriculation. At Texas Tech we are fortunate to have a community of outstanding academic advisors. The Teaching, Learning, and Professional Development Center (TLPDC) would like to draw on your expertise and experience so that we might include the voices of our own advisors in a conversation on advising excellence and best practices. Submissions are invited for 30 or 50-minute workshops that address the needs and concerns of advisors. This could be anything from a session addressing tangible practicalities of “how I do my job” or advising best practices to more data-driven or research-based presentations which we might expect to see at a conference.

Written workshop proposals are due on Monday, September 18 to the Texas Tech Advisors' Forum Committee and should include the following information.

  • Title
  • Presenter Name(s) and contact information
  • Abstract – In 100 words or less, please describe your proposed session
  • Proposal – Please submit a brief statement addressing the format of your presentation and your strategies for audience engagement. Interactive sessions with active audience participation are strongly encouraged.
  • Workshop length
    • 30 minute
    • 50 minute
  • Intended Audience (Select all that apply.)
  • New advisors
  • Undergraduate advisors
  • Faculty advisors
  • Student Support Services Advisors
  • All advisors

All workshops will be held throughout the 2017-2018 academic year at the TLPDC. Specific times and dates will be coordinated with the presenters and announced at a later date. Proposals should be submitted via email to DaNay Phelps or Sarah Hatley.
Submission deadline is Monday, September 18. For more information about the Advisors' Forum, please contact DaNay Phelps or Sarah Hatley.
