Social Media Constituent Group

Thursday, October 17 | 9:00AM–9:50AM | Meeting Room 210D
Session Type: Professional Development
We will discuss using social media to increase communication, build online learning community, create connections with the instructor and among students, and enhance engagement. We again will focus on harnessing the capacity of social media and look to members to bring their experiences to share. We will explore the implications of the integration of social media throughout higher education for an array of purposes (e.g., teaching, recruiting, advising, and more). Social media for our purposes is defined as media that's used to build social networks and connections for sharing information through a mediated channel.
