NASPA SA Speaks | Digital Leadership

Navigating the digital and social age takes courage.  As soon as your campus masters one social media platform your students have adopted another.  As student affairs educators we must quickly find our capacity to lead both online and in-person despite emerging technologies.  Using the results of two studies on how senior student affairs officers, as well as college student leaders use and perceive social media, I used this talk to reveal how the entire field can approach digital leadership and education.  This was from the NASPA national conference held in March.  Are you ready to go viral?!
 

About Josie

I’m Dr. Josie Ahlquist—a digital engagement and leadership consultant, researcher, educator, and author. I’m passionate about helping people and organizations find purposeful ways to connect, engage, and tell their unique story. I provide consulting, executive coaching, and training for campuses, companies, and organizations that want to learn how to humanize technology tools and build effective and authentic online communities.

My blog and podcast have been recognized by EdTech Magazine, Inside Higher Ed and the Chronicle of Higher Education. My book, Digital Leadership in Higher Education, was published in 2020 and was listed as a #1 new release for college and university student life. I have been growing my consultancy since 2013 and am based in Los Angeles. When I’m not helping clients lead online, you might find me training for a triathlon, spoiling my nieces and nephews, or exploring with my husband and our rescue dogs in our new RV called Lady Hawk.

I’d love to connect! Find me on Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Facebook.
