9 FUTURE OF ACTI Going statewide through NC-NET Going statewide through NC-NET Development of ACTII Development of ACTII

10 Preliminary Ideas for ACTII Course Description: ACTII is designed for advisors and counselors who already have a basic understanding of the advisor and counselor role. Individuals interested in taking ACTII should possess a working knowledge of the main FTCC policies, procedures, programs, practices, and documents related to advising and counseling, e.g. – Student Ed Plans, DATATEL, and graduation readiness materials. With this basic understanding, ACTII participants will focus on more complicated advising/counseling issues such as (a) giving advice to developmental students (b) making better use of technology in the advising/counseling processes, e.g. – making use of Blackboard as an advising/counseling tool, and (c) providing fundamental advice in areas such as financial aid and career opportunities.
