Professional Development: Voice of the Tiger: Student Input and Focus Groups at the University of Memphis
Britney Bryson, Health & Wellness Outreach Counselor from the University of Memphis, will join us to discuss student focus groups. Her presentation will help participants define what constitutes a student focus group as well as identify steps for creating a successful student focus group on their own campus. She will give examples of how the University of Memphis utilizes the feedback they receive from students during these sessions and share ideas for how their University plans to use this tool in the future. Participants will have the opportunity to participate in an interactive activity that will further illustrate the use of focus groups in real campus scenarios
