Empowering At-Risk Probationary Students Using Appreciative Advising Inside & Outside The Classroom

Objectives:

Institutions across the country have struggled to create initiatives that lead to increased retention rates for students on probation. This webinar will focus on two initiatives at the University of South Carolina—one focused on individual coaching and the other on a special section of University 101—that empower students to achieve good standing. The first is a programmatic initiative that helps students on probation and/or financial aid probation to devise and implement an academic plan for success. The Academic Coaching & Engagement program employs full-time staff and graduate students to serve as academic coaches for students experiencing academic difficulty. Participants will learn how ACE coaches translate the Appreciative Advising theory to practice. In addition, participants will discover how a special section of University 101 was created for students who had failed University 101 the previous semester and/or students who were on academic probation. We will review how the six phases of Appreciative Advising were infused throughout the curriculum and intentionally embedded into the design of the course.

Objectives:

  • Understand the theoretical infrastructure behind Appreciative Advising
  • Review the six phases of Appreciative Advising: Disarm, Discover, Dream, Design, Deliver, and Don't Settle
  • Learn how to infuse the six phases of Appreciative Advising into one-on-one meetings with students on probation as well as in a University 101 setting
  • Explore how academic coaches can use Appreciative Advising in practice
  • Receive suggestions about how to start either or both of these Appreciative Advising-inspired initiatives at their own campuses
