Presentation Description

Fitchburg State’s Communications Media department is taking steps to attract stakeholders with the promise of shared information in an initiative designed to achieve two distinct goals: 1) to entice stakeholders to take part in communities of practice mediated on Web 2.0 platforms in areas aligned to faculty expertise and 2) to establish and maintain contact with stakeholders, particularly alumni for purposes of relationship building and program assessment. This presentation will describe the plan to use faculty field knowledge in conjunction with shared alumni experiences as the hook to draw-in and stimulate conversation for mutual gain.
