Given that learning is a social process, relationships--especially those with faculty--are powerful tools that aid in students' personal and professional development (Baker & Griffin, 2010). Advising students is a key role that many faculty play in addition to engaging students in the classroom or mentoring them in research settings. This workshop is designed to help future and current faculty learn how to advise effectively.

As a result of attending this workshop, participants will be able to:
= Develop an appreciation for why developing good advising skills matters
= Describe key aspects of how advising works within an institution
= Explain key elements of effective advising for students
= Practice skills around building relationships and engaging future advisees

*About CIRTL (Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning)*
ISU's membership in CIRTL is sponsored in a partnership between CELT and the Graduate College.

CIRTL's mission is to enhance excellence in undergraduate education through the development of a national faculty committed to implementing and advancing effective teaching practices for diverse learners as part of successful and varied professional careers. It was established with the intent of preparing future science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) faculty across the nation, to ultimately improve the STEM learning of all students, at every college and university, and thereby to increase the diversity in STEM fields and the STEM literacy of the nation. The three CIRTL core ideas are: Evidence-based Teaching, Learning Communities, and Learning-through-Diversity.
