This session will provide advisors an opportunity to learn new ways to communicate with students to gain an understanding of the cause of the student’s academic difficulties. Participants will be exposed to strategies that will help them have conversations with students about motivation and self-awareness and how they affect their academic progress.
After completing this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Identify best practices in working with students with academic difficulties
- Understand motivation and self-awareness and its impact on academic performance
- Draw on specific language that will assist in conversations with students
- Challenge students in their academic efforts
