Emergent Student Identities. As Evans et al. (2010) described, in the real-world application of several of the identity development theories, great care is needed by higher education leadership in the development of programs or services that support a college student’s evolving individual identity. Choose one common, emergent identity that surfaces for traditional, undergraduate college students that need such support, and offer at least two recommendations for direct or indirect services that student affairs departments should be responsible for in upholding within both an online and traditional university setting.

EDU 654 Week 3 Training Objective & Advisor Reading List For more course tutorials visit

www.tutorialrank.com Training Objective & Advisor Reading List. The Student Affairs department you presented in Week Two will serve as the setting for the academic advisor training session designed to focus on student individual identity development or student social identity development (see Final Project instructions).

In this assignment, you will first design the training objective for the training session. Your training objective will be based one of two choices:


a.

Student individual identity development

b. Student social identity development

Keep in mind that your training session is limited to 50 minutes, so focus the objective on one concrete issue that the academic advisors will commonly encounter in their first term of service.

Secondly, you will develop an annotated bibliography to share with the advisors prior to the training that includes at least three to four sources that you feel are essential as background information for the training session focus. You will expect that the advisors have read these sources in advance of your training. **********************************************

a.

Sense of belonging

b. Diversity (gender, race/ethnicity, sexuality, religion, etc.)

c.

Oppression

d. Privilege

Include an example, from your own experience or from history, that illustrates how a social issue could affect student development. Suggest interventions that may facilitate learning **********************************************

EDU 654 Week 4 Student Development Principles Checklist For more course tutorials visit

www.tutorialrank.com Student Development Principles Checklist. In Week One, you explored the historical literature that led to various tenets and principles that founded the contemporary field of student development.

In this assignment, your goal is to prepare a one-page student development principles checklist for the group of new academic advisors


that you will be training. Your checklist will consist of an itemized list of 12 to 15 tenets or principles that underscore the student development philosophy in the PowerPoint presentation you prepared in Week Two. Think of the checklist as a handout that you will share with the advisors to accompany the presentation. Ensure that your handout includes an adequate balance of principles from foundational student development theory to contemporary perspectives. These are the working principles that will serve as a foundation for new academic advisors’ understanding of the university’s student development philosophy. (Note: For purposes of this assignment, you will assume that no such list of principles currently exists for your institution, so you are creating one.)

No title page for the checklist is required, but any sources consulted should be included on a separate References page in your submission **********************************************

EDU 654 Week 5 Academic Advisor Training Syllabus For more course tutorials visit

www.tutorialrank.com Academic Advisor Training Syllabus. Project Scenario: Assume the hypothetical role of a Student Affairs professional within a university setting. You have been asked by your supervisor to prepare one 50minute training session for a new team of academic advisors, who will


be hired and onsite by the next semester, and an advance reading list that they will have read prior to the training. Your goal is to train the team of academic advisors on one learning objective that you will develop with an individual identity focus or a social identity focus as justified by student development theory.

As you have read in your Final Project instructions, one of the components of your project will include a one-page training syllabus that outlines the 50-minute training session on one, focused objective that is related either to student individual identity development or social identity development.

For your Week Five submission, you will begin with the training objective and reading list you completed in Week Three to develop the one-page training syllabus. The training should be focused on one key issue that the academic advisors will commonly encounter in their first term of service as related to the training objective. Be sure to keep in mind that your training session is limited to 50 minutes, and time at the beginning of a new term in a busy academic setting is valuable, so the focus of the session is essential. **********************************************
