The Center for eLearning is sponsoring an  eLearning Appreciative Advising Workshop for the front-line staff and advisors here at FAU in how to support and engage online students with student support units across the campus. Ben Forche is the guest presenter for the 2 days full of workshops at the Center for eLearning. Over 115 individuals from across the campuses and units are visiting the Center for eLearning labs and classrooms to learn more about appreciative advising.

Online students often feel isolated and less likely to interact with the student support staff. A common misconception by online students is belief that services are for the campus students. Not at FAU!

This workshop is designed for the online student support units to think through the best ways to optimize their interactions with online students when they reach out. Participants are learning how to use the six-phase model of appreciative advising and the tools to implement the process in their office.

Thank you to:

  • Ben for being an inspiration to those of us at FAU,
  • The participants that gave their time to learn more about supporting online students,
  • The Transfer Center for their tireless work to organize the event, and
  • Amarae for coordinating the event at the Center!
