Event Description

Help Your Students Be Better Prepared To Work with Advisors to Get the Best Results

Do you find that your students don’t seem to fully understand how to make wise decisions or take intuitive steps within their academic life? In this session, expert speaker Carmela Pattillo will discuss several common situations that come up for advisors and how to handle them in a way that empowers students to make wise and informed decisions.

Carmela will provide a number of tips you can use to help your students get and feel in control of their own destiny by teaching them how to do several things themselves so they can ask informed questions and be more proactive instead of reactive concerning their education. You will learn how to help your students be better prepared to work with advisors to get the best results, as well as how to be better prepared to move forward in their chosen career field and how to best explore that. This session will cover the best ways to help students be well informed so they can come in for advisement prepared to discuss their needs, and so that you are able to offer your students information based on what they truly need, rather than just getting them up to speed on what they need. Through these methods, your students will come in knowing at least what questions they need answers to when they meet you.

With this session, you will be able to implement solutions today that will help with the engagement of your students support base. Carmela will provide information you can use to help your students be better advisees so that you and your students work smarter not harder to meet and achieve their academic and career goals.
