Advisers play a vital role in the higher ed experience, as they help students identify and actualize their goals on campus and post-grad. The increasing use of technology in these positions has raised concerns about how successful these roles will be in continuing to assist students.

Digital communications, predictive analytics, and big data are just some of the tools that are increasingly used in advising. But how can new technology be integrated while maintaining the human element of the job? 

While some are concerned these tools would create a barrier between counselors and students, others feel that they will foster deeper ties and communication. In the upcoming virtual forum, hosted by The Chronicle, a panel of experts will discuss how technology will impact the future of academic advising. 

Sign up here to join “How Technology Is Changing Academic Advising” on Thursday, March 30 at 2 PM, ET.
