CDPI Session 5A: Overcoming Misconceptions of Networking: Helping Students Build Relationships and Expand Their Network During the Age of COVID
From Karley Clayton
It has been proven time and time again the benefits of college students building and expanding their network, but how do students effectively network during the age of COVID? In this session, we will discuss the misconceptions of networking, why students do not engage in networking (even before COVID-19), and the value of students building meaningful connections. Participants will learn how to normalize networking as a relational learning experience to students, situate students into growing their network through a variety of platforms, and guiding students in networking during COVID-19.
