Title: The Emotional Labor of Academic Advising: Advisors' Emotions In Their Own Words
Lead Presenter: Gregory Mason
Date: October 06, 2020    Time: 1:35 pm - 2:20 pm
Room: Semi-Live
Abstract: Anyone who has engaged in the work of academic advising understands the myriad emotions that an academic advisor can feel in the course of a given day. These emotional experiences can take a toll on academic advisors...but how? Given their work with students, how is emotional labor woven into the interactive experience of being an academic advisor? This session will examine possible answers to these questions, and how they were explored through interviews with academic advisors in a 2019 study. An investigation of the study results will lead to a conversation among attendees regarding how emotional labor is manifested in their daily advising work. The session will conclude with thoughts on opportunities for future related research, and how NACADA can support such endeavors.
