Scholarly Communication

 

An event for early career researchers organised by the Social Media Knowledge Exchange with the support of the AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership.
Social media is part of everyday life for millions of people but can you make platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Storify work for you in your academic career? What are the challenges posed by using commercial social media platforms to disseminate your research or communicate with academic colleagues? How are PhD students and early career researchers in Cambridge making social media work for them?
Whether you are experienced in using social media for scholarly communication or just curious to see if these platforms and tools can help your academic career, come and join the conversation at the first Social Media Knowledge Exchange event this year.
Topics for discussion
- How do I decide which tools to use for different purposes and audiences?
- How can I find training and advice on social media use?
- How much of my personal thoughts and tastes should I share online?
- What benefits and drawbacks are there to using social media as a researcher?
Please get in touch if you have experiences you would be interested in sharing about social media use in academia. 
With Barney Brown (University of Cambridge Commnications) and Anne Alexander (Social Media Knowledge Exchange and Cambridge Digital Humanities Network)
