As the semester draws to a close, it is a good time for advisers to gather and share our advising experience in a more relaxed manner.

What can I get?

The AAO “Chat and Share” workshop is specially designed to enhance our advising capability through:

  • A review of REAL student advising scenarios that happen day-to-day

  • Sharing by CEDARS’s colleagues to expand our “know-how” on advising mental health and career planning or related issues encountered by advisees
  • Sharing by experienced academic colleagues on tips on handling advisees’ study concerns
  • An update of useful advising resources and referral mechanism

Who is it for?
