Title: Reframing Advising Moments For Critical Consciousness
Lead Presenter: Kelli McAntee
Date: October 07, 2021    Time: 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Room: 252, DECC
Abstract: Advisors' words hold power. They can reinforce values that uphold or disrupt the status quo. They can oppress students or liberate them. They can help students to accept without question or to develop critical consciousness. We argue that by asking questions that challenge the assumed limitations of students' experiences, advising can take on an emancipatory role. During each advising encounter, 'teachable moments' arise during which advisors can confront a student's assumptions and allow them to consider alternate ways of looking at the world. We then present ideas for the kinds of questions advisors can ask to lead to the development of students' critical consciousness.
