Becoming a better advisor is what many faculty members (and staff) strive to do, but it can be difficult finding helpful strategies to improve our interactions with students. What are strategies that faculty may employ to be better advisers and how does one develop a pedagogy around advising?
Participants in this workshop will:
- Understand advising as a teaching and learning process for students;
- Consider the main goals of advising in particular contexts;
- Discuss the relationships with classroom teaching pedagogy and advising pedagogy.
- Start the process of drafting one’s own advising strategies and pedagogies;
This workshop is designed to introduce concepts and build upon any prior knowledge of faculty advising and mentoring of undergraduate and graduate students. Prior knowledge of advising and mentoring strategies is helpful but not necessary for this workshop. Those who have extensive background in advising, those with very little, and all in between may benefit. All faculty and instructional staff are welcome.
