Given that learning is a social process, relationships—especially those with faculty—are powerful tools that aid in students’ personal and professional development (Baker & Griffin, 2010). Advising students is a key role that many faculty play in addition to engaging students in classroom or research settings. This workshop is designed to help all future and current faculty learn how to advise effectively. Through a mix of mini-lecture, small and large group discussion and practice, participants will/be able to:

  • develop an appreciation for why developing good advising skills matters
  • describe key aspects of how advising works within an institution and the different advising roles faculty play, depending on institution type
  • explain key elements of effective advising for students; and
  • practice skills around building relationships and engaging future advisees
  • begin to draft your advising philosophy
