Training & Development: Training Schedule & Registration

You are expected to participate in 2 training sessions per year. If you have not participated in any sessions yet, you are especially encouraged to sign up for one of the opportunities listed below.   

Roundtable Discussions are small group meetings (no more than 12 associate advisors) that will center on advising challenges and solutions relevant to current advising topics. These are interactive sessions will give you the opportunity to share your experiences and learn from other associate advisors in a comfortable setting. Discussions will be led by UAAP staff and might include guest facilitators.

Once you register for a session, you are expected to attend unless an unanticipated conflict arises. In that case, you must notify Leslie Bottari, bottari@mit.edu, 24 hours in advance.

Training Sessions & Registration

Many times difficult situations and conflicts are created by misunderstandings. Sometimes those based on cultural orientation and assumptions. In this interactive workshop, you will deconstruct your own cultural orientation in order to understand how your own culture affects how you listen, perceive, and interact with others. You will learn concrete steps for how to think about and engage in inter-cultural communication in a way that's more productive and creative. Brought to you by Conflict Resolution@MIT with Libby Mahaffy, Sarah Cash and John Ross Campbell.

The first 15 students to register will be placed. This is a small group discussion.
