Example text

Patrick Cate is the Director for the University Studies Department at Plymouth State University in Plymouth, New Hampshire. He holds a BA in Biology from Keene State College and an MEd in Educational Counseling from Plymouth State University. He is the creator of the targeted advising model and has consulted with a number of institutions on its use. He has presented a number of times at state, regional, and national conferences, winning a Best of Region 1 Award in 2009 from NACADA. Mr. Cate also published an article in the NACADA Clearinghouse and the NACADA blog.

Pragmatism and symbolic interactionism both stress the importance of experience in shaping one's values, beliefs, and assumptions (or mental framework) as well as the importance of that framework in shaping behavior. For academic advising, these theories suggest that students should engage in experiences that allow them to test their values, beliefs, and assumptions about their present and future selves. At the same time, they also indicate that the mental frameworks employed by academic advisors matter a great deal and that advisors need to be aware of the ways these paradigms affect student success.

For example, Bensimon (2007) suggested that rendering the implicit theories of student behavior held by practitioners explicit and then interrogating them through evidence helps create, in part, educational equity, and that absent this investigation they may internalize potentially problematic thinking about student experience. Likewise, Parker (1977) distinguished between formal and informal theories created by student affairs practitioners. Finally, research reveals that classroom teacher performance is largely consistent with the personal practical theories that combine personal values, beliefs, and assumptions with formal academic training (Cornett, Yeotis, & Terwilliger, 1990; Levin & He, 2008).
