Social Media Training at Louisiana Center for the Blind

 

Dear Students,

I am looking forward to being with you at LCB next week and working on social media together. I met Jack Mendez when I was presenting at CSUN in March and we struck up a conversation about bringing this training to LCB. I am excited to do the first training with you and I'm interested in your feedback for how to make it more effective in the future.  This page will be updated with more info as the planning period wraps up. I intend for the training to be fun and informative and ultimately to help you become more competitive on social media for career mobility. The real reward will be in being connected to others via social media, but there will also be prizes - read on for more detail on that.

See you soon!

Best,

Eliza
