(Yes, we're the Owls.)
Time for Collaboration and Brainstorming
Take Away At Least Two Tangible Ideas For Your School
Goals for Today
What We Wanted to Accomplish
Work with two teams instead of one
Unite the "faculty team" and the "marketing team"
Tell a powerful, authentic story
Source stories and content from individuals, teachers
We heard from faculty often that they wanted to help with marketing, BUT:
they weren't comfortable with technology
they feared we would not accurately represent them
they didn't know what we wanted
they were too busy
