Reserve your spot now! Final Knowledge Exchange Seminar on 15 March

Dear NSMNSS members,

We're delighted to invite you to the next set of free NSMNSS network activities:

  We will be holding our final Knowledge Exchange Seminar, hosted at NatCen Social Research on 15 March at 35 Northampton Square, London, EC1V 0AX.

This half day session (12.30-4.30pm) will focus exclusively on the issues related to data and analysis quality arising from social media research, please see the programme copied below for more details. We have very limited spaces for this event so places will be allocated on a first come first served basis and preference will be given to participants willing to contribute a case study or example from their own experience to one of the sessions.  If you would like to attend the seminar please contact us (see below) confirming your contact details (email and phone number). We would hope attendees are able to share their experiences throughout the day of quality issues they have faced using social media.

  Although the Seminar is free, space is limited; if you do not attend after reserving a place we will make an administrative charge to cover the costs of catering and administration. Please only reserve a space if you intend to attend.

  In the next couple of weeks we will host the latest in out series of hour long NSMNSS tweetchats related to the issues for discussion in the seminar (follow the hashtag #NSMNSS to participate).

Our Knowledge Exchange Seminars provide an opportunity for researchers, practitioners and policy-makers to share ideas. Each of the four sessions will be interactive, with lots of opportunity for open discussion. We are asking for network volunteers to help deliver the day. You can volunteer to:

  Tell us about your experiences by providing a descriptive case study– a short 2-3 minute description of an ethical issue or concern that you have encountered in your social media research. Please identify which of the suggested themes in the programme you think your example would fit under and we will ask you to share this during the relevant session, in advance via a blog or on the day with a video blog.

If you would like to contribute to the event on 15th March please reply to Kelsey Beninger on by 1st March giving details also of whether and how you would like to contribute. If you would like to contribute a blog or case study, please also include what session your experience relates to.

A live stream of the event will be available, if you are unable to join us please share your thoughts and insights with tweets and comments on our Methodspace forum before and after the event. Remember you can join in network activities here at any time:
