Utilizing positive psychology and other change methodologies, Appreciative Education has allowed educational institutions to create a culture of ongoing learning, change, and improvement. Appreciative Education can be practiced with students in academic advising, coaching, and other higher education settings using its six phases (Disarm, Discover, Dream, Design, Deliver, and Don't Settle).
Part 1 will explore how the framework of Appreciative Education and the first phase, Disarm, can be used to unlock student potential. We will explore how we can help students optimize their educational experiences, identify strengths, and achieve their goals.
Appreciative Education/Advising was co-founded by Jennifer L. Bloom, Ed.D., who also founded the Office of Appreciative Education at Florida Atlantic University.
This training is intended for UCF Academic Advisors and Student Support Professionals.
