I, along with some fellow PhD researchers and social media nerds, will be running workshops at this event. We’re currently in the process of designing the introductory workshops and, because we practise what we preach, we’re collaborating though a shared google doc. Places are filling up fast, so if you would like to attend, please book your place as soon as possible.
Social and Participatory Media in Academic Life
Saturday 29th October 2011 9.30am-4.00pm
Business School South, Jubilee Campus, University of Nottingham
This one-day event will be an opportunity for you to come and experience a variety of discussions on the use of social media in research.
Social media (such as blogs, social networks and Twitter) provide new opportunities for researchers to source information, network, collaborate and disseminate their research. The effective use of social and participatory media (web 2.0) is increasingly seen as a key requirement in 21st Century academic practice. This free one-day event will provide an informal and interactive environment to learn about social media. It is an opportunity to share experiences and good practices, and develop informed and critical approaches to adopting and using social media in your studies/research.
This event has been organised for researchers by researchers. We welcome all PhD students and research staff, including those from outside the University of Nottingham.
Places are strictly limited and will be offered on a first come, first served basis, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
