Appreciative Advising (AA) is one of the most powerful educational trends to sweep across college campuses in decades. First proposed by Jennifer Bloom a little over a decade ago, this advisement policy has been employed by colleges across the Southeast with revolutionary results. Based on the organizational development theory of Appreciative Inquiry and Positive Psychology literature, Appreciative Advising provides a flexible framework for you to optimize student success.
In this webinar expert speaker Jennifer Bloom will discuss how to retain students, one student at a time, and partner together in an intentional collaborative effort to optimize student learning experiences and help them achieve their potential. Whether you are an administrator, staff, or faculty, Appreciative Advising gives you, as educators and paraprofessionals, the tools you need to impact lives of students and also learn from your advisees. You'll also learn the six phases of Appreciative Advising – Disarm, Discover, Dream, Design, Deliver and Don't Settle. Jennifer will provide specific ideas for optimizing your interactions with students and how to carry out each of the six phases.
