Advising can be so much more than checking requirements off a list. Indeed, student retention theories point to it as a major factor in retention and eventual graduation. Unfortunately, advising does not receive the attention it deserves. In this workshop, we will be joined by Professors Dean Adams from Theatre, Performance Studies and Dance, and Jeffrey Helms from Psychology. They will facilitate an exploration of advising challenges, opportunities, and strategies.

Creating a supportive learning environment goes beyond our verbal communication with students to the subtle yet powerful messages we send via the design of course materials and other non-verbal communiqués. This workshop shows how choices in fonts, images, color, and even emoticons can be used to generate learning environments that motivate students.

Are students different from 10-15 years ago or did you just grow old? Generational theorists agree that the current cohort of students, dubbed Millennials, is indeed unique in formative experiences, beliefs, attitudes, and goals. In this workshop, we will examine the societal trends that have shaped our students and affected their readiness for college and their attitudes about learning. We will also contrast the national trends with our student population to determine its unique characteristics and derive teaching strategies.
