Workforce Development: The Art and Science of Vicarious Learning

Royal B
Session Type

Doing (Workshop): 90-120 minutes

Session Description

Students drop classes, change programs, and switch academic institutions when they feel faculty is aloof or disinterested in their success. Similarly, employees leave jobs for a number of reasons; however, a primarily one is poor relations with an immediate supervisor. Oftentimes new faculty and newly promoted supervisors lack the know-how to develop productive relationships with students and employees. Issues such as relationship and community building are usually addressed during events designed to train new faculty and supervisors. Unfortunately, training may not be as timely or thorough as one would like. There is something that can be done in the interim to shorten the relationship-building learning curve. Learn how in this workshop and experience the vicarious learning approach in real time!
