Switching to a Higher Gear: Advising Adult and Traditional Students in Accelerated Learning
The speed of life is expediting: results are demanded faster than ever before. Working adults, young and old, need advanced degrees, but they want them today rather than tomorrow because competition in different sizes and shapes lurks around the corner: outsourcing of jobs, local replacement, job transformation, you name it. Traditional students are not spared from this pressure toward rapid output either: they too are increasingly interested in going through the learning process at an accelerated pace. Advisers are faced with the important challenge of preparing all these learning communities with a similar service, combining the best elements of various worlds into one process: advising for accelerated programs.
