Social status: creative uses of social media in higher education

Social status: creative uses of social media in higher education
Friday, June 3, 2016 - 12:00am

This one day symposium focuses on the value of social media for learning within creative arts and design higher education, while also drawing on innovative and effective practices from across the disciplines.

Who should attend?

This event is open to tutors, lecturers, technicians, study support tutors and librarians who have an interest in using social media, would like to know how to use them better, or have practice to share.

How can social media support creative arts learning, teaching and student support?

We will share innovative practices in integrating social media into a variety of aspects of course delivery, professional and creative practice and information sharing. Speakers and participants will be able to discuss a range of different approaches to using social media and identify ways in which these can be used more effectively.

There is no charge for attending this event, and lunch will be included.
