Social Media for Scientists: #Tweetyourscience
Wednesday November 14, 1:00-3:30pm
Social media presence is increasingly important as one of the ways in which scientists can reach broader audiences. Whether you are a newbie on Twitter or a frequent user looking to increase your reach to different audiences, this workshop will have something for you. Students, postdocs, faculty, and staff are all welcome. Mike Firmand of the Graduate College will spend the first hour on the topic of creating an effective online presence, followed by a panel with peer scientists from campus who have garnered a strong Twitter following to share their experience. We will conclude with breakout activities to put to practice different aspects of Twitter engagement. Attendance is free but please register so that we can plan for refreshments.
Please register here by November 12 if possible: https://forms.illinois.edu/sec/5201052
This event is a joint effort between the Illinois MRSEC, Beckman Institute’s 21st Century Scientists, and the Graduate College.
