Abstract

Interactions between advisees and advisers are at the very heart of advising practice. Advisers need to recognise that each of these interactions is unique and brings with it the opportunity for learning and reflection. To maximise these opportunities, it is imperative that advisers develop an understanding of the student perspective. This highly interactive workshop will introduce a research-based information gathering tool that can be utilised by advisers to gain an insight into the academic world of the individual student. Ideas to help structure advisee/adviser consultations and techniques from Consultation Skills models will then be explored through small group discussion and active participation to enable advisers to develop a repertoire of strategies to help effectively support students to reach their full academic potential.
