This is an exciting new way for CACUSS CoP members to connect and reach out across the country.
One of the topics we briefly discussed at the CACUSS conference this year was collaboration and finding out about advising practices across the country. Why not post a question to the discussion board and find out what your colleagues are doing or if they have suggestions to help you solve your latest challenges? We are looking for members who want to get involved
At the CoP meeting at the 2017 CAUCSS Conference many great ideas were shared for what you would like to see from the CoP this year, thank you to all the members who helped to brainstorm and share. We are excited for the CoP this year, but can't do the work alone. We would like to invite you to sign up for one of three working groups. Working groups will be expected to meet/chat/conference call twice per term, and produce something tangible to share with or engage the larger membership. This could be in
the Blog, as a webinar, or a program to participate in.
Below you will see the overarching themes we created and suggested projects for each of the groups, but you are certainly welcome to add to this list.Advising Theory to Practice
