The Region 2 Blog is Alive!

Greetings, Colleagues.

As we convene in historic Charlottesville, Virginia, and on the heels of celebrating 30 years of NACADA, it seems appropriate to once again ask ourselves how the history of our discipline can help us identify ways in which we can proceed. In appreciation of the fact that we’ve adapted in the past and can adapt again in the future, our hope is to gather and discuss ways to meet challenges such as our students’ ever-changing expectations, how new theories (like learner-centered teaching or appreciative advising) can help us guide our students to success, or how technology can be integrated into our advising plans to increase our effectiveness.

We created this conference site to keep your informed, engaged and excited about the upcoming 2011 Region 2 Conference in Charlottesville, VA.  During the course of the blog, we'll be discussing the planning of the conference, highlighting some sessions and introducing you to some of the technology that will be used before and during the conference to provide you with a more rich and rewarding experience.  On the About page, you'll find a review of the various parts of the blog as well as the features we'll be implementing in the future.  If you have any questions, please feel free to leave us a comment or connect with any member of the conference committee.

Please join us in Charlottesville, Virginia as we look back to move forward — April 6 through 8, 2011.

Co chairs,
Jameela Anderson
Art Esposito
