About the webinar
Institutions face unprecedented changes and growing uncertainty after quickly moving to online environments. While students across the nation are adjusting to this new reality, at least for the short-term, it is more important than ever for institutions to use predictive data to identify at-risk students, enhance the student experience, and remain engaged with their student population.
Listen to data and retention experts from Blackboard and our guest speaker, Patricia M. Ritschel-Trifilo, Ph.D., Director of WBUonline, Wayland Baptist University, as they discuss a new initiative where predictive data and proactive retention coaching can be harnessed together to lift retention, increase engagement, and provide a more holistic view of the overall student experience.
