Melanie Booth Receives Outstanding Author Award

Dr. Melanie Booth, dean of assessment, received a 2012 Outstanding Author Contribution Award for her contribution to Higher Education Administration with Social Media from Emerald Group Publishing.

Dr. Booth co-authored a chapter on using social media in student advising and support. Titled Mentoring 2.0: High Tech/High Touch Approaches to Foster Student Support and Development in Higher Education, the work was a collaboration with Arthur Esposito of Montclair State University.

Booth and Esposito say: "When we think about how these [technological] shifts apply to our experiences advising and mentoring our students in higher education, we do not think it is a stretch to say that when these technologies are employed thoughtfully, these eruptions likely do occur in particular ways that can, in fact, facilitate student support, development and learning in new ways."
