Academic Advising Strategies to Increase Persistence
Venue: Hyatt Regency Tampa
|Event Date/Time: Nov 08, 2010||End Date/Time: Nov 10, 2010|
Research shows that effective academic advising is a key strategy for increasing student persistence and success. Appreciative advising, or advising using positive reinforcement, has proven particularly effective at making a lasting impact on these critical institutional goals.
Join us in Tampa to learn why students do or do not persist and how appreciative advising can make a significant impact on your retention efforts.
'LEARN AND WORK' EVENT
Structured as a "learn and work" event, you will leave this conference armed with an action plan that will help you integrate the appreciative advising model on your campus in order to improve retention. The event also will focus on how to take this framework back to your staff, highlighting several ways to train others in appreciative advising.
AN INTIMATE FORMAT
Given the high level of interactivity, participation in this program will be limited to maximize the value of the learning experience. Throughout the conference, you will have many opportunities to interact with our expert faculty and your fellow attendees, putting the first steps of your campus advising strategy into motion.
