Do you want to find out about tech tools for advising remotely, or want to learn new and better ways to use the tools you have been using? 

Last November, we held a workshop for advisors and coaches on supporting students when in-person contact with them is limited or not possible. The online and offline supports we discussed included keeping in touch with students; sharing resources, referrals, and materials with students; and completing education and career planning activities. This workshop will continue that conversation, addressing participant questions, hearing from one another about learnings so far, and making a plan for moving forward with remote advising and coaching. 

NOTE: Participation at last year’s workshop is NOT required. The webinar recording is available below both for those who did not attend and for those who did and would like a review.
