Researchers are being told that social media is critical to career success – but there is a lot of confusion about how best to make use of these tools. Are you eager to start sharing your research, but don’t know where to start? Or does being on social media create performance anxiety? Join the @thesiswhisperer to learn how to use social media to further your research career.
This course will give the participants, tools, approaches and strategies to incorporate social media into their own academic practice, but on their own terms. Researchers have limited time and energy to devote to online engagement – this course will teach you how to make best use of your available time and create material for a wide range of social media platforms.
Places in this course are limited so that you can experience a safe space to experiment, explore and learn from others. Graduates of this course will join a growing community of practice around social media at ANU.
