You might also think about streaming the workshop on Facebook. It does allow for some of the juggling our students are doing. They might not be able to do the live version but they can access it later when their life calms down.

Subject: Workshop Attendance

Hi everyone,

I saw a great post about hosting workshops based on motivation/goal setting, and it reminded me of a question that we've been trying to solve forever now: how do we get students to attend workshops?

We know that most students are often trying to juggle not just their classes, but also their jobs, family, social life, etc. We find this particularly acute in the community college or commuter college setting where students only come to campus for their classes and leave directly after.

We reach out to students through mail merges, faculty support, and posters around campus.
We see that extra credit tends to bring out more students (marginally), although this is granted through faculty's good graces and never requested by the tutoring center.

To be sure, there are many contributing factors, but I'm curious to see what other strategies are out there?

Thank you for your time!
