In the first of our new GeckoTalks webinar series, Gecko’s SVP, North America Todd Tribble and UK Managing Director Nick Cole share and discuss why it’s more important than ever to have the strategy, tools, and team to deliver a great student engagement experience to increasingly expectant prospects.
Why do you need a better student engagement strategy now? In the US, enrollments are declining, sharply in an already crowded market. In the UK, higher entry results have led to record levels of domestic undergraduate enrollments. This has led to a split between ‘top’ and ‘lower’ tier institutions.
Meanwhile, Generation Z won’t answer their phones and HE institutions are struggling to manage student engagement expectations with the current systems that they have in place. The reality is: students want instant answers, across multiple platforms, and the kind of digital experiences that inspire them to act and engage at a deeper level.
We’ll show you what good looks like when it comes to student engagement and why you shouldn’t settle for less – because the competition definitely isn’t!
Key takeaways include:
- Why you should care about student engagement
- Sector challenges vs evolving communication trends
- What a winning student engagement strategy looks like
- Tactical ways you can outperform sector challenges
