On November 7th we hosted the LALT Showcase: Education in a Digital Age event. During the day academics gave presentations on how they have used technology to enhance their teaching. This presentation was related to using socail media inside of HE. Below is a copy of the abstract and the video of the presentation.
Eric Stoller is an insideHE blogger with a big presence on social media. His presentation looked at the current use of social media in HE and how it can be used to create communities, establish connections and can be used as a collaborative tool to help students and staff interact. There are many ways which social media can be used to influence and inform staff and students. Eric looks at the potential benefits and pitfalls of social media whilst using real-world examples to convey his meaning. This inspiring presentation will give you some ideas about how to use social media in your lectures/modules and the impact this can have on your students.
