CRBLM discussion: Social media for academics
Social media is increasingly considered to be a part of an academic’s life, and if used well it can be an indispensable tool for networking and research dissemination. Unfortunately, horror stories also abound of online trolls, technical blunders, or accidental faux pas. Many of us are even unsure of basic issues like how often to post, what platforms to use, and how to balance personal and professional posts when our “followers” include diverse contacts such as family members, students, colleagues, and potential employers. Come join your fellow researchers as we discuss how to navigate the challenges and opportunities of social media for academics!
We are grateful to our presenters who will be starting the conversation by sharing their own experiences:
Natasha Rajah (Psychiatry, McGill University)
Emily Coffey (Psychology, Concordia University)
Dawn Merrett (Post-doc, Université de Montréal, and social media manager for BRAMS)
When: Wednesday, June 30, 11:00am-12pm
