As the semester draws to a close, it is a good time for advisers to gather and share our advising experience in a more relaxed manner.

What can I get?
The AAO “Chat and Share” workshop is specially designed to enhance our advising capability through:
A review of REAL student advising scenarios that happen day-to-day
Casual sharing on different approaches that may work (As always, there is no single answer to every problem!)
Sharing by CEDARS’s colleagues to expand our “know-how” on advising mental health and career planning or related issues encountered by advisees
Sharing by experienced academic colleagues on tips on handling advisees’ study concerns
An update of useful advising resources and referral mechanism

Who is it for?
This workshop is designed for all Faculty Academic Advisers, teachers and administrators who support undergraduate students.

Who will speak and share?

Dr. Julia Kuehn, Associate Professor and Associate Dean (Teaching and Learning), Faculty of Arts; Chair, Academic Advising Committee
Dr. Anthony Tam, Academic Adviser, Department of Computer Science, Faculty of Engineering
Miss Nicole Tavares, Senior Lecturer, Division of English Language Education, Faculty of Education
