Ever wondered about social media for academics? Join us for an informal chat about the possibilities on Friday 8 January in Room 508 Royal London House, Lansdowne Campus, Bournemouth University 12:30-2:00 p.m.
Feel free to bring your lunch.This will be a great way to finish up HSS’s ‘Writing Week’ with some practical tips on reaching wider audiences with your outputs through the likes of Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, etc/ and/or your own personal blog or other blogs and web-based publications already up and running.
This will also be a ‘Taster Session’ for the upcoming “Creative Writing for Academics” two-day workshop in February. It is not necessary to be booked for that, however, but rather an opportunity to get an idea of what you might explore further at that workshop.
Kip Jones, who made London School of Economics’ list of favourite academic tweeters, will run the Taster Session. Kip was also listed among JISC’s 50 most influential UK higher education professionals on social media.
What they say at JISC: “Kip’s blog, ‘KIPWORLD’, covers a wide range of topics from advice on writing a PhD thesis to insight into his creative process. He regularly uses his blog, Facebook and Twitter to share his research (with) others.
Kip also contributes to the LSE Impact blog, LSE Review of Books, Discovery Society, Sociological Imagination, Creative Quarter, The Creativity Post and the Bournemouth University Research Blog.
Mark your calendars today so that you don’t forget the date over the holidays!
