Target Audience: Postdocs
This workshop is designed specifically for researchers who are looking to develop their online presence and boost their career prospects through social media. There are now numerous channels available that can be used to amplify your research, promote an enterprising project and attract future employers. In addition, social networks can act as a valuable source of information and a personally tailored news feed.
We will explore different types of content that researchers can experiment with. What is your digital footprint? What should you post and what should you avoid? How should you manage your time on social media and optimise your engagement? In addition to designing an individual digital strategy, the workshop will include a section on legal considerations and privacy.
The workshop is designed to cover a selection of mainstream social media tools that can be used to build your online profile. Short group exercises, case studies and the instructor’s personal experience will be included to illustrate key points.
At the end of this workshop participants will have:
- discussed the various ways to use social media to their advantage with other participants in the workshop;
- an awareness of the legal considerations and privacy issues
- started to design a digital strategy that they can implement in their own time.
