Advising By Faculty.
Kramer, Howard C.; Gardner, Robert E.
The goal of the report is to identify, describe, and discuss some aspects of faculty advising that are little discussed between advisors and colleagues: source of confusion; roles; how to proceed with advising; keeping the relationship alive; special problems; informational advising; and models for advising. The concept and practice of an advising contract is discussed. It is felt that advising can contribute to the major conditions for successful personal development during the college years: facilitation of personal autonomy of the student; opportunity to engage in actions that are useful to other people and to oneself; opportunity to develop competence and produce work thereby; and learning to act in concert with other people.
