Don’t Let your ‘About Me’ Bio Keep Blocking Student Engagement

Purchase for $59.99 (AUD) incl. GST

Did you know that research has found that one critical blocker to online student engagement is your ‘about me’ bio or intro?

Come learn the simple formula for getting yours right! This hands-on session with Dr Deniese Cox from TeachingOnline is definitely not to be missed.

Your ‘about me’ bio or self-intro is one of the very first things online students go looking for. Those same students report that most intro’s are switching them off and blocking their engagement!

First impressions affect things like willingness-to-engage ratios, optimism for learning, and early drop-out rates. This means that quickly gaining the trust and engagement of your students is vital. Your ‘about me’ bio really does matter!

Don’t worry – I’ve worked with a communications expert to design, test, and refine the perfect formula, and hundreds of educators have now found what a huge difference applying this formula has made. This is a very hands-on webinar where you’ll be walked step-by-step through writing your own self-introduction in a way that does resonate with students.

The detailed workbook includes all the templates for ongoing use, and you too will soon be seeing what a difference this approach makes.
