Moving to a Virtual Space: How to Create Virtual Graduate Student Orientations

The COVID-19 pandemic has drawn attention to the need for virtual modules to complement, and in some cases replace, in-person experiences. Virtual orientations are particularly important because they allow students to access introductory information about university requirements and course programs without being on campus. This webinar will feature two institutions, the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities and the University of Washington, that have built virtual orientation modules. More importantly, presenters will provide tools and tips for how institutions of different sizes and Carnegie classifications can build and implement their own virtual orientations quickly and with limited resources.
