Developing Course Profiles to Match Course Characteristics with Student Learning Styles
Gerdes, John H.; Crews, Tena B.
NACADA Journal, v30 n1 p23-33 Spr 2010
Advisors with a working knowledge about course workload and the levels of learning in specific classes provide the best possible advising. Unfortunately, they often have only limited information regarding important course characteristics. With a better understanding of these factors, advisors can assist students in making appropriate course selections during the advising process and promote a positive advisor-student relationship. We explain a new means of profiling courses that integrates information about the workload and levels of learning for each course. We also explain the benefits of these new course profiles for advisors, faculty members, students, and administrators. (Contains 6 figures and 1 table.)
