Student Engagement in the Virtual World (Alabama)
Rethink and adapt your student programs for successful virtual delivery.
The Alabama chapter has traditionally held an annual “student day” of programming to engage interior design students across four universities. When COVID hit, they creatively adapted their traditional in-person event to all virtual and saw higher numbers of students engaged than ever before. Learn tips on how to incorporate social media, industry partners, incentives, and a mix of on-demand and live programming that you can apply to your student engagement efforts.
