Session Description

With the availability of MyPath and curriculum guides, faculty advisors may wonder whether there is any task left for them to do. In fact, the most critical role for faculty advising is when conversations about direction or change need to take place. Student questions such as “What major should I choose?” or “I didn’t get in… now what?” require a different strategy for advising compared to what is needed for schedule development or graduation audits. This interactive workshop will introduce the concept of Appreciative Advising as a means for engaging in effective conversations with students about choosing or changing their career goals. Participants will learn proven strategies to put into immediate practice.
