Title: Narrative Theory in Advising
Lead Presenter: Angela Bowlus
Date: October 09, 2021    Time: 8:00 am - 9:00 am
Room: 264, DECC
Abstract: Storytelling is one of the most important ways we and our students have of creating, maintaining, defining, or changing our identities. Stories provide structure and coherence to events, processes, and motivations, constructing meaning and cultivating understanding. Even as student success is largely measured by objective data these days, this session will explore non-metrics-based approaches that advisors can use to identify what might be considered as true student success: what a student's education means to them and how they value it. After an introduction to narrative theory, the participants in this session will explore why narrative theory is important to academic advising, how narrative theory fits with other advising theories, and how we see narrative theory play out in advising interactions.
