How is this manifesting on college campuses? Are communications changing? How is it affecting how teachers teach, students learn, and universities reach their audiences? This is your chance to discuss it with people wondering the same things.
Please join us for a discussion on how social media is being used in the higher ed space (anyone from any education level is welcome!), every first and third Thursday of the month at 3:30pm EST.
Our topics will vary each week, and will be posted below. We’ll also provide a wrap-up of each discussion in case you missed us.
We’ll indicate the focus of each discussion using the following key (keep in mind, anyone who wants to join at anytime is more than welcome):
- [University] – These discussions will focus mainly on how a university deals with the given topic, and will apply more directly to communications/marketing managers on campus.
- [Classroom] – These discussions will focus mainly on how digital media is being used in a teaching environment, and will apply more directly to faculty or academically-focused staff (for instance, academic deans).
- [All] These discussions will cover a broad-enough range of topics that it should be fun and exciting for everyone!
