MIACADA hosts NACADA Webinar:
Nudging Students to Success: The Integration of Academic Advising and Motivational Psychology
April 6, 2017
2:00-3:00pm EST


Registration is open.

Details: In this webinar, presenters from highly-rated past NACADA conferences come together to address a dilemma that academic advisors from across the globe are all too familiar with: How do we effectively motivate students to take advantage of student success offices and academic planning tools? Despite the fact that most higher education institutions now offer a wealth of student success resources, survey data suggests that these offices are under-utilized by students. Our presenters will discuss the micro and macro factors that contribute to this issue, and will argue that academic advisors play an essential role in the solution. Utilizing techniques found in Richard Thaler and Cass Sunstein’s “Nudge: Improving Decisions about Health, Wealth, and Happiness,” advisors are able to nudge students into making good decisions by altering predictable behavior through incentives. Discussion will focus on nudging students via intentional acts of persuasion and guidance to produce outcomes while maintaining a student’s agency.
