Upcoming Sessions Subscribe to the XML feed for this topic

There are no sessions scheduled at this time.

Topic Details


Using social media for professional communication and promotion of your research or teaching can elevate your public profile and enhance your networking capabilities. Participating in social media as an academic is quickly becoming a necessary component of a professional profile.

But how do you get started? How do you learn what works on any given social media platform? Where do you find resources? And how do you measure success?

Whether you are trying to get started or you already have accounts on multiple platforms, this session will offer overviews, insights, support, and a tactical direction to make social media approachable and useful for you, both personally and professionally.

Lunch and individual support available after the session.

Although desktop computers will be available for use, we encourage bringing a personal device (laptop, tablet, or smartphone) and power cord to enhance the experience.

Presented by:
Twister Marquiss, Manager, Marketing and Communications, McCoy College of Business

Harley Miller, Digital Design Specialist, University Libraries
