Event Description

Adjust Your Advising Strategy to Fit the Student

When advising college students, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. Your advisory toolkit must be as varied as students’ disparate learning patterns and developmental needs. Yet many academic advisors aren’t equipped to use multiple, dynamic methods to meet a diverse set of demands. Do you often ask yourself: Should I be more coach or teacher? Should I be proactive, appreciative, or constructive in my approach?

Learn how to adjust your approach and better promote student success in this information-packed webinar presented by student advisory expert Dr. Joanne K. Damminger. You will learn multiple, tried-and-true strategies to advising; their major tenets; and when their application is most beneficial. Damminger will explain how to utilize multiple tactics to connect with students and better ensure that advisees understand and make the best use of your services.

After attending this audio event, you will have a fuller-scope advising toolkit, complete with an understanding of how to use various approaches to meet individual student needs. You’ll also be able to share these new methods with colleagues and your institution’s student relations team.
