4C - Using LinkedIn Creatively to Improve Curriculum and Get Students Excited About Using the Tool.

Emerging Trends in Industry
Monday Jul 30   03:00 PM to 03:55 PM (55 minutes)

LinkedIn is no longer the rolodex it used to be and has changed significantly since the Microsoft takeover. This tool remains to be a major professional platform for students, recruiters and co-operative educators. In her presentation, Sarah-Joy Kallós will be relaying examples from her own work on 1) getting the industry pulse for a curriculum refresh and 2) a creative application of the tool in the classroom that demonstrated the dramatic impact of crafting a post on LinkedIn. By consciously and strategically employing this tool, co-op educators can deliver information to students and employers, create value and authority in their field and mentor students on the etiquette of this platform.
