We hope you will join us for one of the following sessions:

Engaging the Digital Generation for Faculty and Staff
9:30-10:30 a.m.
Old Main Room, Bone Student Center

As educators, we need to know the digital space and actual student usage of social media tools. While perceptions and fears may exist, fueled by the mass media, higher education must strategically approach digital communication technologies with possibilities to build community. By learning the tools and meeting students where they are, the university can build stronger communities online and in-person. This session will focus on social media strategy and marketing, through the lens of student development and learning. Registration for faculty and staff is now available.

Digital Wellness for College Students
2-3 p.m.
Prairie Room, Bone Student Center

The reality is that technology is woven into our daily routines, but most people are not plugged into how they are being impacted by tech. This keynote will explore realities of our digital age, especially for college-aged students, and tools to take care of yourself and others no matter the place: online and on-campus. This session is open to all students, faculty and staff. Registration is now available.

We hope you can attend these engaging sessions, discovering digital leadership with Josie Ahlquist.
