NSMNSS knowledge exchange event: Using social media for academic work - opportunities and challengesFollowing on from the successful launch of our book of blogs on social media research, we will be holding a new knowledge exchange event on January 12th at NatCen in central London with two of the blog authors sharing their experiences of using social media for research. We're delighted to be joined by Dr Deborah Lupton, Centenary Research Professor at the University of Canberra, who is making a flying visit to the UK and also by Dr Luke Sloan from the COSMOS team at Cardiff University.
As well as the two main presentations there will be an opportunity for networking, lunch and the chance for you to share your research experiences in an open space forum where you can ask for advice and input on challenges or dilemmas you may be facing with your own research projects.
A draft agenda for the event is below; places are free but limited to 25 people so please book your place by clicking this link as soon as possible.
If you would like to share your challenges, dilemmas or experiences on your own research during the informal open space session then email Kandy Woodfield at firstname.lastname@example.org. You won't need to prepare a presentation but we will ask you to talk about your research project or proposal and the issue you'd like input on for about 5 minutes.
