We’re using our online web chat to be available to students during regular office hours in place of the main office phone line
Mary Struzska-Tyamayev
33:38
Curious to see what the interaction rates are of students with virtual classroom- I would love to do this!
Brian Wasserman
34:03
@LizShearer - what platform are you using for the online chat? This is something we are considering too.
Grace Twardy (she/her/hers)
34:38
@Brian I've used drift in the past - was very easy to set up and students, parents, etc. really engaged with it!
Sara Dart
35:14
@Matt is there a way of tracking the number of students that visit your virtual office?
Brian Wasserman
35:48
Thanks Grace!
Mary Struzska-Tyamayev
35:48
The money questions, withdrawal limitations have been added to our waiver students sign (although waivers as we know are not worth the paper they are written on but still..)
lgrodewald
38:46
What are the provider costs to help with these virtual initiatives?
Zac Macinnes
40:19
Hi Laura! For CIS Abroad, you can see here for more information: https://www.cisabroad.com/faculty-advisors/custom-programs/campus-internationalization-solutions/
Zac Macinnes
40:45
@Mary - smart to add that information to your student waivers! #proactive
Matt Schiesel
40:47
@ Sara and @ Mary - Regarding engagement with virtual offices, you can track how many people visit the office...though there are limitations. I used Google Slides to create mine and Google has a tool to track how many people visit the virtual office. However, it doesn't track what links students click on in the office, and I'm not sure if it tracks visits to the office that are not associated with Google accounts.
Zac Macinnes
41:56
@Matt and @Sara Ellie is going to talk about ways to track online engagement! Stay tuned :)
Sara Dart
45:22
That's such a great point. Our counterparts at overseas universities are also looking for ways to demonstrate their value, so many of those folks would be really interested in partnering on those projects
tracy weber
49:54
I did this for 10 years at UC Berkeley, and plan to do so at Bryn Mawr - very effective to communicate with internal and external constituents
Natalie Schlegel
49:57
We started an annual report. Here's an example http://d2f5upgbvkx8pz.cloudfront.net/sites/default/files/inline-files/INT.437.18%20Annual%20Report%20Final.pdf
Shearer, Liz
50:27
We switched from a lengthy annual report to summary sheets with data based charts, program highlights, student and faculty quotes, etc. We do an overview summary sheet and also college specific sheets.
Zac Macinnes
51:04
Great example @Natalie! Thanks for sharing. I love how you all included student stories in your report
Natalie Schlegel
51:17
Love the short sheet idea. Because I'm stressed about how to recap this past year in an annual report when it's' been hard to get good spring stories.
Ginny Casper
51:34
@Natalie - thanks for sharing!
Natalie Schlegel
52:02
Pro tip: highlight as many faculty as possible!
Zac Macinnes
52:11
@Liz like an “executive summary” - I like it!
Brian Wasserman
53:10
At Lehigh, we advise by college. I have worked to create specific one-page sheets for each of the Engineering departments with which I work to create buy-in from faculty/show them a comparison among the departments. Some departments are shocked to see that others are sending more students. I think getting faculty buy-in is important!
Gina Reis
54:19
@Natalie — love your report. Thank you for sharing!
Sara Dart
55:52
@Brian that's so clever. Creates some incentive for the other departments to keep up!
lgrodewald
56:33
@Natalie- that report is great! Did you have support outside your office putting it together? What software did you use to create it?
Brian Wasserman
57:04
@Sara Faculty can be competitive. Who knew? Always interesting to see reactions.
Mary Struzska-Tyamayev
57:08
How do you pilot/convince of the academic value and similar learning outcomes of virtual engagement?
Maria del Mar Aponte Rodriguez
57:24
does anyone have a sample of a short sheet? I think those are a great idea
Mary Struzska-Tyamayev
57:25
Caree services, faculty, deans
Grace Twardy (she/her/hers)
57:31
@Mary I would second your question!

@lgrodenwald. My office created annual report content, our Marketing department did the design. They don't even charge unless you print.
lgrodewald
59:05
thank you Natalie
Sara Dart
59:13
@Mary I feel like Career Services are your natural allies in making the argument for the value of virtual engagement. Now that so many jobs have moved online, the skills students would get through virtual internships in particular are more useful than ever
Zac Macinnes
59:40

I love what the author says about domestic and virtual experiences “advance important student outcomes as best outlined in the Association of American Colleges and Universities' Global Learning Value Rubric: “Through global learning, students should: 1) become informed, open-minded, and responsible people who are attentive to diversity across the spectrum of differences, 2) seek to understand how their actions affect both local and global communities, and 3) address the world's most pressing and enduring issues collaboratively and equitably.”
Mary Struzska-Tyamayev
01:02:41
@Sara I think the challenge is that traditional internships are rooted in the institutional curriculm/ courses taught by the institutions faculty. When you have external programs/internships, it is usually difficult convincing faulty that another institutons’ teaching is just as good, but the experiential piece sells it. With virtual it is an additional layer of complexity :-(
Mary Struzska-Tyamayev
01:03:42
@ZAC OOOH- I LOVE THAT!

@Mary that does make the situation more challenging, especially when you're talking about pre-professional fields like social work and health science
