2018-19 Adviser Forum West has ended
Welcome to Los Angeles, and to 2018 Forum West!
**Reminders: Please bring a notebook and pen to every session, and wear your CAC name badge at all times**

Dear CAC family,
Welcome to my home state of California and our Adviser Forum West! We are thrilled to have you here in the City of Angels and are grateful to our host chapter, the awesome USC Corps! Fight on!

Our theme this year goes to the heart of CAC’s mission -- Advancing Opportunity. The goal over the next few days is to recommit ourselves to advancing opportunity in various ways. We hope you will discover best practices from your peers, engage with the research, reflect on your journey and what may lie ahead by interacting with the alumni panel and industry workshops, and be inspired by our guest speakers whose stories capture in powerful ways the journey to advancing opportunity.

On behalf of our national team and Board of Directors, we are grateful for the work that each of you — 716 advisers serving 210,000 students in 16 states across the country — do every day. We continue to build a national movement at a critical time in our nation’s history. Let us commit to ensuring every student hears those four key words, “I believe in you” and, together, we advance opportunity.

It is an honor to serve with you!

Adviser Session #3: P(l)ay Attention: Strategies and Games for Engaging Classroom Presentations LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

CAC advisers have all sorts of vital information to share, from the application process to testing strategies to the nitty-gritty of financial aid, but all of us are all too familiar with the glazed-eyed looks we get from students halfway into a presentation. How do we keep our advisees from tuning out when we’re trying to tell them what they need to know? Join us as we focus on tools and strategies for more dynamic and engaging classroom presentations that will keep students’ heads off of their desks, incentivize participation, and encourage recall of important information. From Teach for America behavior-management techniques that will get the rowdiest class to pay attention, to learning games that make dispensing college-process information more than just a lecture, our session will help you become a more confident and effective classroom presenter.
