Whose List Is It, Anyway?

1,938 views

Published on

How do YOU create college lists? In this era of increased availability of information and a concomitantly greater need for smarter searching, filtering, evaluation and analysis, we are all learning, and the list of available tools seems to be expanding exponentially. What factors go into the searches we’re all conducting? What can colleges do to get onto our “radar?”

We started by conducting "energy audits" on the college search process, then moved on to a little wiki “show & tell” and a quick review of some of the tools currently available to counselors, students, and families. We closed by sharing challenges & strategies, round-robin style. I was working with some great participants!
