Technology Enhanced Learning at Sussex

Shareology and Social Media in Academia

12:30-2pm, Wednesday 27th April, Quiet Room, Meeting House

Abstract

This talk will consider the role of social media for sharing and exchange of knowledge; and the importance today of having a scholarly professional online presence. Through considering our own digital footprint and the use of social media to connect, communicate, curate, collaborate and create (Nerantzi and Beckingham 2014), it is then possible to act as role models for our own students or indeed peers. I will share exemplars of my own experience and across the sector.
