Technology and Innovative Strategies to Increase Student Engagement

Host: Stacy Moore, Certified Career Management Coach, Delaware Valley University

In today’s landscape of constant communication, persistent marketing, and instantaneous access to knowledge via the web, students have become masters at quickly filtering information. If your message is not perceived as relevant or valuable, it will likely be discarded. For Career Services professionals, the result of this trend is most often evidenced in low student attendance at events and a lack of awareness about the office’s resources.

During the webinar, we will explore innovative ways to increase student engagement by first uncovering the real reasons for students’ lack of interest in our programs and services. Acknowledging that each institution has unique challenges and student needs, you will leave the webinar with access to a collaborative, online list of resources to try out in your own office. You will also learn about how to make strategic, student-focused changes to your programming-from small shifts such as altering marketing or revising content to overhauling event formats and employing new technologies.
