Learning Consolidation & Check-In Activity: Communication Strategies Brainstorming and Voting - Question = For the students who are looking to raise their professional profile for potential employment, where do you think they should put their presentation from today? 1. Form groups of 3-4 (not your homework group members) 2. Brainstorm three potential places or communication strategies for where today's presentations could go (e.g. SlideShare, email, make a YouTube video, Vimeo, Facebook, given to workplace to share through social media, LinkedIn profile/portfolio, SnapChat, Instagram, convert to a meme) 3. Once every group has three ideas, we will vote as a class. One vote per student! This is a good time for debate and having a strong sense of humour! No one is required to follow the group's vote; however, it can be a useful exercise to see where people think is the best current venue and strategy for library communications!
