how the institute is unique
Less lecturing, more doing! The Institute provides an opportunity to build substantive relationships with the top Appreciative Advising professionals as well as with colleagues from throughout the country. Small groups allow participants to practice new skills and techniques. You will leave the conference with practical skills and strategies that you can immediately put to use when you return. A fun, energizing atmosphere that will help you remember why you wanted to work in higher education. You will leave refreshed, revitalized, and recommitted to student success!
I think that the small group format really allows for deep, comprehensive understanding of the AA framework, and sets the AAI apart from other academic conferences.
