The Blended Advising Model: Transforming Advising with ePortfolios
Ambrose, G. Alex; Williamson Ambrose, Laura
International Journal of ePortfolio, v3 n1 p75-89 2013
This paper provides the rationale and framework for the blended advising model, a coherent approach to fusing technology--particularly the ePortfolio--into advising. The proposed term, "blended advising," is based on blended learning theory and incorporates the deliberate use of the strengths from both face-to-face and online environments, as well as synchronous and asynchronous technologies and interactions. ePortfolios and an advising syllabus will be offered as core examples of practical applications of the theoretical blended advising model in redefining and reengineering the advising process. Current and emerging advisor support systems and delivery technologies are also organized and applied to the proposed model to illustrate the possibilities, potential, and processes that are created from a transformative blended advising redesign.
