ECRN: How to Use Social Media to Support your Research
20 February 2017
12:30-14:30, Wednesday 1 March 2017
Technology is changing the way we access information, and how we communicate. Nowhere is this more apparent than in academia. Social media sites, such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, and blogging platforms such as Blogger and WordPress, are increasingly being used to raise profiles, to disseminate research, and to make links with potential collaborators.
Is it possible to embrace the new technology without compromising your integrity or short-selling your research? Rebekah is a prolific and successful blogger (via the Guardian), and has a considerable following on Twitter. In this session she will share her experiences, what works for her, and what she's learnt from engaging positively with social media.
The session is free and open to all, but numbers are limited so do let me know if you would like to come along. A light lunch will be provided from 12:30pm.
