How to be famous: Recruitment through live internet broadcast

Tuesday, July 28, 2015 at 11:15 AM

Location: Room 2

We’ve all been there — sitting through yet another unengaging and boring webinar. The presenters slides seem somewhat interesting but they’ve got that same monotonous drawl as the presenter from the last webinar you sat in on.

Now imagine how high school students must feel if they’re sitting through webinars about your school? Are they as bored as you?

Follow along as Tom Cochrane walks you through how he threw the webinar concept out the window at Grenfell Campus, Memorial University and built #GrenfellTalk, a bi-weekly interactive webshow targeted at high school students. We’ll cover everything from putting together a set, outreach and marketing to high schools, to getting university admin excited about the project (seriously — they got super excited).
