Reaching Generation Hashtag: Leveraging Social Media to Support Student Success
In the first of our two part social media webinar series, join us as we hear from Dr. Reynol Junco, author of the recently released book, “Engaging Students Through Social Media.” Drawing upon his years of research and data collection regarding student technology use, Dr. Junco will explain how social networks can be used to not only disseminate general institution information, but can also provide a platform for colleges and universities to improve engagement, academic performance, and persistence amongst students.
You will learn about the impact of social media within higher education , role of social media in predictive analytics and relationship between social media and student identity. Participants are able to send questions prior to the webinar via #reytalks and email@example.com.
