I’ve recently contributed to a couple of internal workshops at Edinburgh Napier University on using social media to promote research. The purpose these sessions was:
- to address the need for academics, researchers and PhD students to enhance the visibility of their work;
- to raise awareness of opportunities for developing professional networks offered by social media – for example, to connect to peers and collaborators, and for academics, researchers and PhD students to engage with the work of others as others engage with theirs;
- to discuss strategies for the development of presences on, and use of, social media.
In the expectation that they may be useful to academics, researchers and PhD students elsewhere, I have uploaded a version of my slides from the sessions to SlideShare.
