Navigate Fall 2021 Pilot Training

Navigate Fall 2021 Pilot Training

What: Pilot Training of faculty and IAS undergraduate advisors in the use of Navigate in the Departments of Math & Computer Science and Education

 

When: October 7th and 8th, 2021

 

Why: To equip undergraduate advisors to use Navigate fully in the process of advising and registering students during Fall 2021 advisement season

 

What is Navigate?

Navigate is a platform for student advising that professional advisors at UW-Superior have been using since 2019. Now, faculty and IAS advisors will learn the tool and incorporate it into advising and registration. Log into Navigate via the Campus Logins page.

 

Why are we using it?

Navigate will enhance current advising practices in four ways by:

  1. Allowing advising activities to be captured at a whole-university level. Advisors spend many hours scheduling students, meeting with and supporting them, and keeping advisement records. These activities performed through the platform allows us to “see” the results of advising without asking faculty and IAS to take time to report them.
  2. Providing student information to advisors on a dashboard that helps inform the types of courses, support, and activities an advisor might help a student explore.
  3. Affording instructors easier ways to communicate with all of their advisees or appropriate subsets at once via email and calendar scheduling, as both are connected to Outlook.
  4. Students who began at UW-Superior in Fall 2019 or later have already been using this platform to be advised; this will bridge the gap they experience in moving from their professional to their faculty or IAS advisors.

 

Is it for all students?

Navigate is being used only for undergraduate advising per the contract with the vendor.
