Join a Focus Group During #ASCA18
The Center for Postsecondary Readiness and Success, in collaboration with ASCA, will be conducting two 90-minute focus groups at the conference and is looking for school counselors who are interested in sharing their thoughts on (1) developing college and career counseling competencies and (2) creating a research agenda guided by practitioners. The groups will meet on Saturday, July 14, 2018, in the Los Angeles Convention Center, Room 401. College and Career Counseling Competencies (1:30–3 p.m.)
What do school counselors need to be successful when guiding/advising/counseling students thru their postsecondary planning (college and career)? What skills and knowledge should be non-negotiable when considering any professional who provides student guidance as they navigate postsecondary options?
Creating a Research Agenda (3:30–5 p.m.)
Are you a school counselor interested in building strong research partnerships to guide your comprehensive school counseling program? Are you a school counselor educator with ideas to strengthen college and career counseling research? Are you a doctoral student with suggestions to strengthen your research journey?
If you're interested in sharing your ideas, please send your name, contact information and identify which focus group you are interested in participating in to Laura Owen by July 11, 2018.
