Plenary Session VI
A classroom discussion gets uploaded to YouTube. A controversial tweet goes national. A commencement speech becomes a viral sensation. Instant communication can mean instant controversy, posing new media and monitoring challenges for higher education communicators and administrators. Learn from colleagues as they discuss recent social media crises and share lessons that can help you protect your institution’s reputation.
