In episode eight of Adventures in Advising, Colum Cronin and Matt Markin consider how advisors facilitate learning. 

Many institutions have been forced to move their teaching and assessments online in the past few weeks; this, in turn, has impacted upon students, faculty and advisors. You'll hear from all three groups, as we discuss the impact of this mid-semester shift.  Additionally two Advising Directors discuss the significant contributions advisors make to teaching and learning. 

In this episode you’ll hear interviews with (in order of appearance): 

David Raymond Smith - Associate Dean for Advising and Executive Director, Division of Undergraduate Studies at Pennsylvania State University

Conor Buggy - Assistant Professor in Occupation and Environmental Studies at University College Dublin

Vish Gain - Postgraduate Student at Dublin City University

Aisling O'Grady - Head of Student Advisory Service at University College Dublin

We’d love to hear from listeners. What did you enjoy? Are there improvements we could make? Are there specific topics you’d like us to cover, or people you’d like us to interview?

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
