Social Media for Impact

s200 kate lindsay

Event type: Workshop


Social media is an increasingly important part of academic practice. In this session we will look at how the medium is being used to promote academic work and raise academic profile, network with colleagues, and to engage with the public online. We will look at developing a social media strategy and how to capture value. After coffee we will move on to look at the use of social media in academic events, how to prepare, how to engage your attendees and maximize your twitt-effectiveness.
