The Bloomington Advisors Council is sponsoring a Professional Development Program for the 2012-2013 academic year. The BAC Professional Development Program is designed to provide national-caliber professional development training to IU professional academic advisors at no cost to the advisors. The Program will provide monthly on-campus professional development during the lunch hour. Each advisor who attends FIVE or more program events will receive a certificate of completion and acknowledgement letter sent to the advisor's supervisor.
The requirements for the 2012-2013 BAC Professional Development Certificate have recently been amended. Selection of professional development events to attend for credit toward the certificate is up to each individual advising professional. As a professional in the field, you know best your professional development needs. The BAC PDC will evaluate events based upon our definition of professional development and how each submitted event meets the learning objectives for the Professional development certificate program (see Appendix A in the approved guidelines). All submissions of events should be made to the chair of the Professional Development Committee, Jessica McKamey (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than May 10, 2013.
The Professional Development Committee will be sending out emails soon congratulating those Advisors who have completed the 2012-13 BAC Professional Development Certificate Program as well as updates regarding sessions attended toward the Professional Development Certificate. Those wishing to submit an event for consideration to the Professional Development Committee to be counted toward the PD Certificate should be sure to submit your information by the May 10th deadline.
