Creating Impact online: A beginner’s guide for researchers

Online media (blogs, forums, websites, Facebook, Twitter etc.) are increasingly important as a means for creating impact, sharing information and collaborating with others.

This workshop will be of interest to anyone wanting to use social media to:

  • disseminate research
  • identify and share relevant opportunities
  • communicate a cause
  • connect and collaborate with other researchers, media, charities or businesses.

By the end of the session you will have:

a) a clearer idea of the types of online platforms available to researchers and how to use them. 

b) an understanding of what makes content newsworthy, and how to build ‘audience interest’ in your work.

c) ideas about how to effectively build and manage your professional ‘online media profile’ to maximise opportunities.

d) a brief understanding of related topics such as ethics, reputation and legal issues
