AbstractIntroduction: Career advising for medical students can be challenging for both the student and the adviser. Our objective was to design, implement, and evaluate a "flipped classroom" style advising session. Methods: We performed a single-center cross-sectional study at an academic medical center, where a novel flipped classroom style student advising model was implemented and evaluated. In this model, students were provided a document to review and fill out prior to their one-on-one advising session. Results: Ninety-four percent (95% CI, 88%-100%) of the medical students surveyed felt that the advising session was more effective as a result of the outline provided and completed before the session and that the pre-advising document helped them gain a better understanding of the content to be discussed at the session. Conclusion: Utilization of the flipped classroom style advising document was an engaging advising technique that was well received by students at our institution.

Strengthening Range Management Technical Assistance—The AdvisorJohnston, A. (Society for Range Management, 1966-11-01)The advisor would be more effective if he would forget detail of his discipline and remember principles; if he would learn as much as possible as quickly as possible about the culture he is supposed to advise; and, if he would apply principles in light of cultural limitations. Often the greatest service the foreign advisor can provide is to speak for the technicians of the country, to add the prestige of his position to the recommendations that local technical officers are confident will succeed.
The Role of Microaffirmation in Advisor-Student Communication: Promoting Belonging, Wellbeing, and Performance in Institutional EnvironmentsLiu, Rain W.; Carter, Shelby Noelle; Harwood, Jake; Rains, Stephen A. (The University of Arizona., 2021)Microaffirmation defines everyday communication that shows appreciation, encouragement, or validation (Ellis et al., 2019; Rowe, 2008). Microaffirmation enhances a sense of belonging among the members of a social environment, and is an easily accessible tool that can be used to promote equity in institutions. Research shows significant relationships between receiving microaffirmation and improved relational, psychological, and performance factors, yet it has been unclear whether microaffirmation is substantially different from concepts already established by supportive communication scholarship. Moreover, clarity is needed regarding the functional boundaries of microaffirmation and its relevance across various social groups. To address these gaps, qualitative and quantitative data were collected via a cross-sectional research design, and were used to examine the role of microaffirmation in advisor-student communication and its impacts on undergraduate college students’ (N = 361) sense of belonging, psychological wellbeing, interaction perception, engagement, and commitment to persist through college. Results indicated that microaffirmation messages are sent by advisors to a moderate-to-high degree on average, and are salient when received by students. Controlling for differences accounted for by demographic characteristics, COVID-19 impacts, and social support variables, results showed that encouragement from advisors positively influenced students’ sense of belonging and psychological wellbeing. Advisors’ validation positively predicted students’ perception of interaction quality on campus. The results of this study underscore the value and utility of microaffirmation as an emerging area of scholarship.
