COE Student Advising Office awarded grant for orientation advising study

PascoDr. Gwenn Pasco, Assistant Dean for Educator Certification and Undergraduate Academic Services and the Student Advising Office were awarded a $500 grant to study the academic success of new students based on the type of orientation advising received.

Two delivery methods will be employed: traditional and interactive. The project seeks to explore any differences between the two groups of students in terms of knowledge acquisition and content mastery during freshman orientation sessions. One group will participate in traditional face-to-face orientation sessions while the other group will participate in interactive orientation sessions grounded in collaborative learning and interactive technologies.
