Leading Community in Digital Spaces

Dr. Josie Ahlquist, researcher, consultant, and author of Digital Leadership in Higher Education: Purposeful Social Media in a Connected World

Monday, November 16, 12 – 1 pm EST

Do you consider yourself a digital community builder? What about a Digital Leader?

While web, marketing, and communication professionals have long been seen as having highly proficient skills in so many areas of digital, the specific priority to use digital communication tools to build community online may have been overlooked or underprioritized.

With all areas of campus pressed into digital and community members dispersed around the world, your role and responsibility to lead in digital spaces are paramount, whether it’s in a Facebook group, Slack channel, or how you strategize your web and social media content year-round.

This eduWebinar, recorded November 16, 2020, features Dr. Josie Ahlquist, researcher, consultant, and author of Digital Leadership in Higher Education: Purposeful Social Media in a Connected World. Josie is also the founder of Higher Ed Digital Community Builders, a group of student engagement and digital marketing professionals that hosts on-going panels on how to build community in digital spaces.

This Ask-Me-Anything styled conversation with Josie is moderated by Jon McBride, Associate Director of Athletics for Communications and Media Strategy at Brigham Young University. Josie and Jon discuss what has worked and continues to work in building digital communities in higher education, as well as web and communications professionals’ role to lead online.
