As the summer comes to an end, everybody is taking advantage of back to school sales, reading back to school blogs, and chuckling at back to school memes on Facebook. But for leaders in university admissions, back to school often means organizing staff training sessions, and putting newly trained admissions officers on the road. Around this time every year, I receive emails from colleagues who want us to come on campus for an hour of IB 101. Sometimes we do these sessions in person, often we will arrange a video conference for the team. I am pleased to say that word of our IB 101 sessions has gotten out and we have received so many requests that we are quite busy this time of year.
Last summer, the IB Marketing and Communications team came up with a great way to reach more colleagues at once. They helped create an IB 101 webinar for university admissions staff. The live webinar addresses most of your staff training needs. Additionally, we will share the benefits of recruiting IB students to your institution. The webinar will take place on August 21st 2018 at 2:00 PM. Please follow this link to register: http://www2.ibo.org/university-recognition-webinar
This webinar will:
* Give participants an overview of the IB Diploma Programme
* Prepare participants to answer the most frequently asked questions about the IB
* Discuss the benefits of recruiting IB students to your institution
* Share best practices for University Admission Officers
We have heard back from a number of institutions who will include the webinar as part of their already established staff training sessions and others who are encouraging staff to view the webinar individually. Whichever modality works for your team, we welcome your participation.
If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me.
