This workshop will focus on students with particular needs in advising, including: students with substance use/abuse issues; those with personality disorders or difficult personality issues; and those with social skills deficits or social anxiety.

¥ Identify students with substance use/abuse issues, difficult personality issues, and/or social skills deficits or social anxiety
¥ Determine how these issues affect advising and describe ways in which the advisor can help the student

POGIL is a very structured technique for using collaborative groups in large classes. It was designed by college Chemistry and Biology faculty and has been shown to be effective in teaching science as a creative process and engaging students in large classrooms. It is being expanded to other disciplines besides science. Participants in this workshop will view a TED talk on POGIL before the workshop, participate in a POGIL activity, and then design a POGIL activity to take back to their classroom.
