Event Description

Use the 3-D Approach to Advising to Maximize Service to Students and Increase Efficiency

Academic advisors are inundated with student appointments, calls, walk-ins, and email inquiries. The nature of the work may, at times, seem to be repetitive, and it is easy to quickly provide answers to commonly asked questions. However, advisors are cautioned not to engage in one-dimensional, rote advising. By engaging in thoughtful investigation and research, advisors can help to effectively problem-solve, trouble-shoot, anticipate student needs, and help students to avoid obstacles. By doing so, they can maximize service to students, increase efficiency, and reduce overall workload.

It is essential that you engage in strategic research, analysis, and investigation of student records in order to comprehensively serve the students with whom you work. Without engaging in thorough research, you risk creating barriers instead of removing them. In this session, expert speaker Sue Ohrablo, Ed.D., will examine real-world scenarios to identify pitfalls in advising as well as strategies for improvement. You will learn how to use your student information systemsor enterprise resource planning (ERP) software to proactively engage in problem-solving and research.
