Gain a better understanding of your advisees vision for the future and design a plan for connecting the dots.
While many advisors are working to implement the Appreciative Advising® model on campus, the Dream and Design phases often fall short. Though it may be difficult to easily measure outcomes within the Dream phase, it directly informs the Design phase of the model. Learn how to facilitate the Dream phase of Appreciative Advising to better solidify your students’ aspirations and use the Design phase to outline a plan that will help achieve them.
Simply put, you can’t develop a successful plan for students without a firm understanding of where they want to go. The Dream phase allows for meaningful conversations with students concerning their post college aspirations and the Design phase turn those dreams into achievable goals. If too little time is dedicated to the Dream phase, whatever Design you and your advisee create will fall short.
Academic advising and student service professionals will benefit from better developing the Dream and Design phases of Appreciative Advising. Administrators supervising advising departments are also encouraged to attend this online training.
