Title: The First Five Minutes: Connecting With Students Quickly
Lead Presenter: Rebecca Weidner
Date: October 07, 2021    Time: 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Room: Zoom Room 2
Abstract: With increasing advisor loads, limited advising appointments, and short time frames in each appointment, how do you build relationships with students efficiently? As advisors, we want to be a relevant resource to our students while also developing rapport; we want students to feel comfortable coming to us with questions and concerns. This interactive session will use principles from the Disarm phase of Appreciative Advising theory to assist advisors in beginning to build rapport quickly through in-person, video chat, and phone appointments with students. While this session is primarily targeted for new advisors, seasoned advisors may appreciate the opportunity to refine their rapport building skills and collaborate with others.
