The next edition of the IFSA You Belong Here Series explores inclusive practices within an established model of appreciative advising. Inclusion begins from our first engagement with students. Appreciative advising provides a framework to engage all students around their strengths, meeting them where they are and building trust early in the advising process. Based on a chapter in the forthcoming book, A House Where All Belong: Redesigning Education Abroad for Inclusive Excellence (The Forum on Education Abroad, 2021), this session highlights practical examples of how practitioners can implement appreciative advising techniques in their student support strategies, transforming the advising experience for students and advisors.
