INTRODUCTION TO ADVISING AT WKCTC Purpose of  the  Faculty  Resource  Guide     The  West  Kentucky  Community  and  Technical  College  Faculty  Resource  Guide  is  designed  to  assist  all   academic  advisors  and  provide  them  with  the  tools  they  need  to  be  successful  advisors.  It  serves  a   reference  for  advisors  and  helps  to  answer  frequently  asked  questions.  The  guide  also  helps  facilitate   advisor  training.  The  Faculty  Resource  Guide  is  also  designed  to  help  advisors  refer  students  to  the   resources  and  programs  available  to  our  students.       WKCTC  ADVISING  PHILOSOPHY     West  Kentucky  Community  &  Technical  College  academic  advising  empowers  students  to  become   responsible  for  their  own  academic  success.  Faculty  advisors  are  committed  to  providing  accurate  and   comprehensive  academic  advising.  Working  together,  students  and  advisors  develop  one-­‐on-­‐one   relationships  and  share  responsibility  to  assist  students  to  make  choices  and  define  goals;  guide  students   through  administrative  processes;  develop  meaningful  educational  plans;  connect  students  to  campus   services  and  resources;  and  encourage  the  intellectual  growth  of  students.       ADVISING  MISSION  STATEMENT     The  mission  of  the  Master  Advising  Center  at  West  Kentucky  Community  and  Technical  College  is  to   provide  accessible,  innovative,  and  comprehensive  advising  services  within  an  environment  of  excellence   and  commitment  to  student  success.      STUDENT  RESPONSIBILITIES  RELATED  TO  ADVISING     Students  are  responsible  for:     • Knowing  the  requirements  of  their  particular  academic  program;  selecting  courses  that  meet  those   requirements  in  an  appropriate  time  frame;  and  monitoring  their  progress  toward  graduation;     • Consulting  with  their  assigned  academic  advisor  to  handle  the  questions  or  concerns  they  have;     • Scheduling  and  keeping  academic  advising  appointments  in  a  timely  manner  throughout  their   academic  career,  so  as  to  avoid  seeking  advising  only  during  busy  registration  periods;  and     • Being  prepared  for  advising  sessions       ADVISOR  RESPONSIBILITIES     Advisors  are  responsible  for:     • Helping  students  clarify  their  options,  goals  and  potential;     • Helping  students  understand  the  nature  and  purpose  of  a  college  education;     • Maintaining  confidentiality  per  College  and  Federal  guidelines;     • Providing  accurate  information  about  educational  options,  requirements,  policies  and  procedures,   and     • Helping  students  plan  their  educational  program  and  monitor  and  evaluate  their  educational   progress.

NATIONAL ACADEMIC ADVISING ASSOCIATION ADVISING CORE VALUES Exposition

Core  Value  1:  Advisors  are  responsible  to  the  individuals  they  advise.         •        Academic  advising  is  an  integral  part  of  the  educational  process  and  affects  students  in  numerous     ways.  As  advisors  enhance  student  learning  and  development,  advisees  have  the  opportunity  to     become  participants  in  and  contributors  to  their  own  education.  In  one  of  the  most  important     potential  outcomes  of  this  process,  academic  advising  fosters  individual  potential.         •        Regular  student  contact  through  in-­‐person  appointments,  mail,  telephone,  E-­‐mail,  or  other     computer-­‐mediated  systems  helps  advisors  gain  meaningful  insights  into  students'  diverse     academic,  social,  and  personal  experiences  and  needs.  Advisors  use  these  insights  to  assist  students     as  they  transition  to  new  academic  and  social  communities,  develop  sound  academic  and  career     goals,  and  ultimately,  become  successful  learners.         •        Advisors  recognize  and  respect  that  students'  diverse  backgrounds  are  comprised  of  their  ethnic     and  racial  heritage,  age,  gender,  sexual  orientation,  and  religion,  as  well  as  their  physical,  learning,     and  psychological  abilities.  Advisors  help  students  develop  and  reinforce  realistic  self-­‐perceptions     and  help  them  use  this  information  in  mapping  out  their  futures.       Ø Advisors  introduce  and  assist  students  with  their  transitions  to  the  academic  world  by   helping  them  see  value  in  the  learning  process,  gain  perspective  on  the  college  experience,   become  more  responsible  and  accountable,  set  priorities  and  evaluate  their  progress,  and   uphold  honesty  with  themselves  and  others  about  their  successes  and  limitations.      

Ø

Advisors encourage  self-­‐reliance  and  support  students  as  they  strive  to  make  informed  and   responsible  decisions,  set  realistic  goals,  and  develop  lifelong  learning  and  self-­‐management   skills.      

Ø

Advisors respect  students'  rights  to  their  individual  beliefs  and  opinions.      

Ø

Advisors guide  and  teach  students  to  understand  and  apply  classroom  concepts  to  everyday   life.      

Ø

Advisors help  students  establish  realistic  goals  and  objectives  and  encourage  them  to  be   responsible  for  their  own  progress  and  success.      

Ø

Advisors seek  to  understand  and  modify  barriers  to  student  progress,  identify  ineffective   and  inefficient  policies  and  procedures,  and  work  to  affect  change.  When  the  needs  of   students  and  the  institution  are  in  conflict,  advisors  seek  a  resolution  that  is  in  the  best   interest  of  both  parties.  In  cases  where  the  student  finds  the  resolution  unsatisfactory,  they   inform  students  regarding  appropriate  grievance  procedures.

NATIONAL ACADEMIC ADVISING ASSOCIATION ADVISING CORE VALUES Exposition

Ø

Advisors recognize  the  changing  nature  of  the  college  and  university  environment  and   diversity  within  the  student  body.  They  acknowledge  the  changing  communication   technologies  used  by  students  and  the  resulting  new  learning  environments.  They  are   sensitive  to  the  responsibilities  and  pressures  placed  on  students  to  balance  course   loads,  financial  and  family  issues,  and  interpersonal  demands.      

Ø

Advisors are  knowledgeable  and  sensitive  regarding  national,  regional,  local,  and   institutional  policies  and  procedures,  particularly  those  governing  matters  that  address   harassment,  use  of  technology,  personal  relationships  with  students,  privacy  of  student   information,  and  equal  opportunity.      

Ø

Advisors are  encouraged  to  investigate  all  available  avenues  to  help  students  explore   academic  opportunities.      

Ø

Advisors respect  student  confidentiality  rights  regarding  personal  information.  Advisors   practice  with  an  understanding  of  the  institution's  interpretation  of  applicable  laws  such   as  the  Federal  Educational  Rights  and  Privacy  Act  (FERPA).      

Ø

Advisors seek  access  to  and  use  student  information  only  when  the  information  is   relevant  to  the  advising  process.  Advisors  enter  or  change  information  on  students'   records  only  with  appropriate  institutional  authorization  to  do  so.      

Ø

Advisors document  advising  contacts  adequately  to  meet  institutional  disclosure   guidelines  and  aid  in  subsequent  advising  interactions.    

Core Value  2:  Advisors  are  responsible  for  involving  others,  when  appropriate,  in  the  advising  process.         • Academic  advisors  must  develop  relationships  with  personnel  critical  to  student  success   including  those  in  such  diverse  areas  as  admissions,  orientation,  instruction,  financial  aid,   housing,  health  services,  athletics,  academic  departments,  and  the  registrar's  office.  They  also   must  establish  relationships  with  those  who  can  attend  to  specific  physical  and  educational   needs  of  students,  such  as  personnel  in  disability  services,  tutoring,  psychological  counseling,   international  study,  and  career  development.  Advisors  must  also  direct  students,  as  needed,   to  experts  who  specialize  in  credit  transfers,  co-­‐curricular  programs,  and  graduation  clearance.     • Because  of  the  nature  of  academic  advising,  advisors  often  develop  a  broad  understanding  of   an  institution  and  a  detailed  understanding  of  student  needs  and  the  resources  available  to   help  students  meet  those  needs.  Based  upon  this  understanding:   Ø

advisors can  have  an  interpretative  role  with  students  regarding  their  interactions  with   faculty,  staff,  administrators,  and  fellow  students,  and

NATIONAL ACADEMIC ADVISING ASSOCIATION ADVISING CORE VALUES Exposition

advisors can  help  the  institution's  administrators  gain  a  greater  understanding  of   students'  needs.       Students  involved  in  the  advising  process  (such  as  peer  advisors  or  graduate  assistants)  must  be   adequately  trained  and  supervised  for  adherence  to  the  same  policies  and  practices  required  of  the   professional  and  faculty  advisors  and  other  specially  trained  staff  advising  in  the  unit/institution.     Ø

       l           Core  Value  3:  Advisors  are  responsible  to  their  institutions.       •          Advisors  work  in  many  types  of  higher  education  institutions  and  abide  by  the  specific  policies,   procedures,  and  values  of  the  department  and  institution  in  which  they  work.  When  circumstances   interfere  with  students'  learning  and  development,  advisors  advocate  for  change  on  the  advisees'   behalf  with  the  institution's  administration,  faculty,  and  staff.       •          Advisors  keep  those  not  directly  involved  in  the  advising  process  informed  and  aware  of  the   importance  of  academic  advising  in  students'  lives.  They  articulate  the  need  for  administrative   support  of  advising  and  related  activities.       •          Advisors  increase  their  collective  professional  strength  by  constructively  and  respectfully  sharing   their  advising  philosophies  and  techniques  with  colleagues.       •          Advisors  respect  the  opinions  of  their  colleagues;  remain  neutral  when  students  make  comments   or  express  opinions  about  other  faculty  or  staff;  are  nonjudgmental  about  academic  programs;  and   do  not  impose  their  personal  agendas  on  students.       •        Advisors  encourage  the  use  of  models  for  the  optimal  delivery  of  academic  advising  programs   within  their  institutions.     l Advisors  recognize  their  individual  roles  in  the  success  of  their  institutions  and  accept  and     participate  in  institutional  commitments  that  can  include,  but  are  not  limited  to,  administrative  and     committee  service,  teaching,  research,  and  writing.       Core  Value  4:  Advisors  are  responsible  to  higher  education  in  general.       •        Advisors  accept  that  one  goal  of  education  is  to  introduce  students  to  the  world  of  ideas  in  an     environment  of  academic  freedom.  Advisors  demonstrate  appreciation  for  academic  freedom.       •        Advisors  base  their  work  with  students  on  the  most  relevant  theoretical  perspectives  and  practices   drawn  from  the  fields  of  social  sciences,  the  humanities,  and  education.

NATIONAL ACADEMIC ADVISING ASSOCIATION ADVISING CORE VALUES

Exposition

One goal  of  advising  is  to  establish,  between  students  and  advisors,  a  partnership  that  will  guide   students  through  their  academic  programs.  Advisors  help  students  understand  that  learning  can  be   used  in  day-­‐to-­‐day  application  through  exploration,  trial  and  error,  challenge,  and  decision  making.       •        Advisors  advocate  for  student  educational  achievement  to  the  highest  attainable  standards  and   support  student  goals  as  they  uphold  the  educational  mission  of  the  institution.       •        Advisors  advocate  for  the  creation,  enhancement,  and  strengthening  of  programs  and  services  that   recognize  and  meet  student  academic  needs.     •    

Core  Value  5:  Advisors  are  responsible  to  their  educational  community.       •        Many  institutions  recognize  the  importance  of  integrating  classroom  learning  with  community   experience,  study  abroad,  and  programs  that  bridge  the  gap  between  the  academic  and  off-­‐campus   environments.  Where  such  programs  exist,  advisors  help  students  understand  the  relationship   between  the  institution  and  local,  regional,  national,  and  international  communities.       •        Advisors  advocate  for  students  who  desire  to  include  study  abroad  or  community  service  learning   into  their  co-­‐curricular  college  experience,  and  they  make  appropriate  referrals  to  enable  students   to  achieve  these  goals.       •        Advisors  understand  the  intricacies  of  transfer  between  institutions  and  make  appropriate  referrals   to  enable  students  to  achieve  their  goals.       Core  Value  6:  Advisors  are  responsible  for  their  professional  practices  and  for  themselves  personally.       •        Advisors  use  the  Statement  of  Core  Values  to  guide  their  professional  actions.       •        Advisors  seek  opportunities  to  grow  professionally.  They  identify  appropriate  workshops,  classes,   literature,  research  publications,  and  groups,  both  inside  and  outside  the  institution,  that  can  keep   their  interest  high,  hone  professional  skills,  and  advance  expertise  within  specific  areas  of  interest.       •        Advisors  seek  cross  cultural  opportunities  to  interact  with  and  learn  more  about  ethnic     communities,  racial  groups,  religions,  sexual  preferences,  genders,  and  age  levels,  as  well  as     physical,  learning,  and  psychological  abilities  and  disabilities  found  among  the  general  student     population.             westkentucky.kctcs.edu

•      Advisors  recognize  that  research  topics  are  embedded  in  academic  advising  practice  and  theory.   Advisors  engage  in  research  and  publication  related  to  advising  as  well  as  in  areas  allied  with  their   training  and  disciplinary  backgrounds.  Advisors'  research  agendas  safeguard  privacy  and  provide  for   the  humane  treatment  of  subjects.       •        Advisors  are  alert  to  the  demands  surrounding  their  work  with  students  and  the  necessity  of  taking   care  of  themselves  physically,  emotionally,  and  spiritually  to  best  respond  to  high  level  demands.   They  learn  how  to  maintain  listen  and  provide  sensitive,  timely  responses  that  teach  students  to   accept  their  responsibilities.  Advisors  establish  and  maintain  appropriate  boundaries,  nurture   others  when  necessary,  and  seek  support  for  themselves  both  within  and  outside  the  institution.       The  Statement  of  Core  Values  provides  the  guidance  academic  advisors  seek  from  the  National  Academic   Advising  Association.  The  Statement  is  reviewed  periodically  to  ensure  its  alignment  with  current   professional  practices  and  philosophies.  The  National  Academic  Advising  Association  encourages   institutions  to  adopt  the  Statement  of  Core  Values  and  support  the  work  of  those  who  provide  academic   advising.     Revised  2005  Copyright  ©  2005  by  the  National  Academic  Advising  Association  (NACADA)

PRE-ADVISING SHEET RATIONALE Dear Advisors,    

The West  Kentucky  Community  and  Technical  College  Advising  worksheet  is  a  tool  to  help  students  and  advisors  prepare  for  their   academic  advising  appointments.  Ideally,  your  advisees  should  fill  the  form  out  before  their  appointment.  The  form  can  be  used  to   make  the  advising  experience  focused  and  efficient.  It  also  ensures  that  students  are  involved  in  the  advising  process  and  have   thought  about  the  next  semester  and  their  future  goals.        

You can  e-­‐mail  the  form  to  students,  or  ask  them  to  print  it  from  the  website  and  bring  it  with  them  to  the  appointment.  Students   can  e-­‐mail  the  form  back  to  you.  You  can  save  it  and  use  it  when  they  come  to  their  appointment.  It  is  our  hope  that  the  form  will   assist  you  in  record  keeping  and  m aintaining  advisee  files.      

Please let  us  know  if  you  have  any  questions,   The  Advising  Center  Staff   WKCTC-­‐TransferCenter@kctcs.edu

ONLINE LEARNING Frequently Asked  Questions  about  Online  Learning     Can  a  student  take  on-­‐campus,  Learn  by  Term,  and  Learn  on  Demand  courses  in  the  same  semester?    Yes,   but  financial  aid  will  be  disbursed  according  to  the  Learn  on  Demand  guidelines.  Students  who  qualify  for   financial  aid  should  contact  the  Go  KCTCS!  Student  Service  Center  at  1-­‐866-­‐321-­‐7406  about  the   disbursement  of  financial  aid  prior  to  enrolling  in  Learn  on  Demand  courses.     Can  an  advisor  enroll  a  student  in  a  Learn  by  Term  course  delivered  by  another  KCTCS  college?  Yes;   however,  it  is  easier  for  the  student  to  obtain  textbooks  if  the  student  is  enrolled  in  a  WKCTC  Learn  by  Term   class.  Students  wanting  to  enroll  in  a  Learn  by  Term  class  starting  in  less  than  two  weeks  and  delivered  by   another  KCTCS  college  should  be  referred  to  Faris  Sahawneh  (Faris.sahawneh@kctcs.edu)     Can  an  advisor  enroll  a  student  in  a  Learn  on  Demand  course?    Because  there  are  certain  attributes  that   must  be  applied  to  the  Learn  on  Demand  student’s  PeopleSoft  record,  the  student  should  be  referred  Laura   James  (laura.james@kctcs.edu).     How  does  a  student  get  textbooks  for  Learn  by  Term  classes  delivered  by  other  KCTCS  colleges?    Direct  the   student  to  the  KCTCS  Online  Bookstore  -­‐  http://yourschoolyourbookstore.com/       How  does  a  student  get  textbooks  for  Learn  on  Demand  classes?  E-­‐resources  are  included  with  each  Learn   on  Demand  course;  therefore,  it  is  not  necessary  for  the  student  to  order  textbooks.     Online  Learning  includes  Learn  by  Term  and  Learn  on  Demand  courses.    Learn  by  Term  classes  are  the   “traditional”  online  courses  with  specific  term  start  and  end  dates.    Learn  on  Demand  classes  are   competency-­‐based,  self-­‐paced  courses  offering  credit  for  prior  knowledge.    They  can  be  taken  in  a  15-­‐week   session,  14-­‐week,  and  so  on  down  to  a  6-­‐week  session.    Courses  must  be  completed  by  the  end  of  the  term   in  which  the  student  is  enrolled.  

CAREER RESOURCES Several   resources  available  to  students  from  WKCTC  Career  Services  are  the  following  Career  Exploration   tools.       Clifton  StrengthsFinder     https://www.gallupstrengthscenter.com/Purchase/en-­‐US/Product?Path=Clifton%20StrengthsFinder     The  Clifton  StrengthsFinder  assessment  will  allow  you  to  discover  your  top  5  strengths,  and  download  the   bestselling  StrengthsFinder  2.0  e-­‐book.  Learn  how  your  dominant  talents  help  you  excel,  and  begin  your   path  to  better  performance  and  higher  engagement.  Intended  as  an  introduction  to  strengths,  this  solution   is  ideal  for  people  who  want  a  quick,  focused  approach  to  strengths-­‐based  development.

Students are  expected  to  seek  help  when  needed.  

The course  has  a  recommended  timeline  that  allows  the  student  to  complete  the  work  by  the  end  of  the   semester.  Students  are  allowed  to  spend  extra  time  on  individual  modules  as  needed  to  master  the  material.   There  are  late  penalties  on  lesson  quizzes,  NOT  on  module  tests.  

   

Benefits to  Students   • Instructors  and  tutors  provide  individualized  support.        

Saves money  by  allowing  students  to  accelerate.  

Students may  begin  the  next  transition  course  when  the  first  is  completed.    

• •

If the  second  course  (or  third)  is  completed  within  the  semester,  STEP  credit  is  given  at  NO  additional  cost.       Testing  into  the  next  level  before  finals  week  on  the  Math  Placement  Assessment  earns  a  P  (Pass).    

Flexible pace  to  complete  modules.  There  are  late  penalties  on  quizzes,  NOT  on  tests.  

Students do  better  in  college  level  courses  than  if  they  had  not  taken  transition  courses.      

 

 

Information Students  Need  to  Know   • Lectures  are  replaced  by  multimedia  aids,  videos  and  one-­‐on-­‐one  tutoring  by  an  instructor  or  tutor.  This  allows   personalized  attention  and  more  instructor-­‐to-­‐student  interaction  than  in  a  lecture  based  format.    

Students should  activate  email  accounts  prior  to  the  first  day  of  class.  

Students must  purchase  a  new  Hawkes  Access  Code  only  once.  It  will  work  for  all  MAT  65  or  MAT  85  courses   on  campus  or  online.    

Online students  may  come  to  the  Math  Center  to  work  on  their  courses.  

All Transition  Math  students  should  expect  to  spend  additional  time  working  at  home  or  in  the  Math  Center.  

Tests for  on-­‐campus  courses  MUST  be  completed  in  the  Math  Center.
