New Online Virtual Programs

Although your campus may be closed, and the students dispursed to learn online, they still need to be engaged. You know from the National Survey on Student Engagement that Engaged Students are Retained Students. But how to you engage your students if they aren't even on campus? Your answer is Online Virtual Programs.

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Del has been creating new programs which can be presented remotely. Drawing from his graduate degree program in Instructional Design, he has developed powerful new training programs to engage and educate your student leaders and your campus activities programming board. Some of these programs are totally new. Some of these programs are online virtual versions of his most requested presentations.

NOTE: Del can provide a recording of your program that you can share with your students if they can't attend or wish to view it again. You'll receive a link to view the recorded program for up to 30 days after the event at NO charge.

In addition-- if you have other topics your student leaders need, please let Del know. He will be happy to create a new presentation to meet your needs exactly.

Consider these programs:

Creating Student Learning Outcomes

This session is perfect for both student program boards and professional staff.
