Sign up for a workshop on: Developing Your Academic Digital Footprint

Date: Wednesday 2 March 2016
Time: 12.30 – 2pm
Venue: The Gannochy, Wolfson Medical School Building

We live in a knowledge economy that is increasingly digitised, but are researchers equipped to communicate their research and engage professionally and credibly in this space? Writes Louise Mitchell, Research Strategy & Innovation Office.

This workshop will get you to think strategically about your online identity and consider the online life cycle of your research.

It will:

  • Provide an overview of how to present a visible, consistent, credible online presence and message
  • Offer practical tips on engaging professionally with social media
  • Explore examples of good practice in digital research communications
  • Allow time for Q&A - to pool experiences from both presenters and attendees.

The seminar will be interactive and we encourage you to bring questions, discussion points or suggestions from your own research and KE activity that you like to share.

Lunch will be provided at 12.30pm in the Wolfson Atrium with the seminar beginning at 1pm.
