Our systems for learning, for working, for relationships, for communicating, for finding and disseminating information, for research, and more, are being rewoven through social media platforms and networks. Academic institutions and funding agencies not only demand that scholars publish, but also demand evidence from citation metrics that others are reading and citing the work. The demand that academics both publish and demonstrate impact is a conundrum amidst the increasing “digital deluge” (Boon, 2016).
The case for using social media to reference, discuss, and promote your research, and for connecting with others, is research driven (McKenzie & Ozler, 2011; Mollett, Brumley, Gilson, & Williams, 2017). At the same time, there is a need for scholars to critically examine social media tools, use, and the impacts on academia, learning, institutional behaviors, and society. This workshop offers a hands on introduction to social media, its relevance to academic work, critical digital & media literacy skills, and how you can make choices about how, and in what ways to develop your social media presence.
This is an interactive digital workshop to show you how to use social media to multiply your presence and digital presence on the internet, engage the networks, explore how you can monitor systemic flows across the social networks, and how the ‘real’ world activity flows and energy links to the social virtual and back again. We will also be introducing new forms of journalism (citizen, deep, constructive, solutions), upcoming trends in media, social media, virtual reality & augmented reality technology and what it may mean for you. Learn how to stop ‘pushing’ and start ‘pulling’; relationship building online and offline; social media etiquette… yes, there is an etiquette.
The goal of this workshop is for participants to be able to use and understand the now and future of social technologies in academia, business and society to connect and collaborate with other researchers, to disseminate their research and to manage their public profile, to extend systemic thinking and research into society; to expand the ISSS professional, academic, and practitioner networks.
