Quick Reference Guide for Faculty Academic Advisers (2nd Edition)
AASO has compiled the second edition of the Quick Reference Guide for Faculty Academic Advisers. This booklet offers easy-to-reference information on academic advising and outlines key issues pertaining to advisers at HKU. An online version is available now (http://intraweb.hku.hk/reserved_2/aaoffice/user_guide/faa-guide-2nd_edition_v2.pdf). Hard copies had been distributed to all current advisers through the Faculty Offices in October 2014. Should you also wish to have a copy, please contact our Office.
Quick Web Link Guide for Advisers – I Want to Help My Students
To assist FAAs with various advising topics, AASO has developed a new online resource page. Popular topics raised by students are grouped under different headings, with quick links to the relevant websites / supporting units. Currently we have three Faculty-specific pages for the Faculties of Business and Economics, Social Sciences and Science, and a general page for other Faculties. . Please take some time to browse through the guide.
New Enhancements in the SIS Advising System
A number of new enhancements in the SIS advising system are in place to further facilitate the work of FAAs.
If you are a FAA and some of your advisees have not made an effort to contact you, please consider sending a reminder to them by using the “bulk email” function in the SIS advising tools. You can also press the “no response” button in SIS for advisees who remain unresponsive. In this situation, AASO will follow up accordingly with the students by phone.
