If you have followed us over the last few years you will have noticed that we continue to add new ways of sharing information. A few things, we have given up over the years (such as the compilation of social dimension news items), others have been of secondary importance (e.g. the use of our Facebook page). Now we are adding podcasts to our spectrum of media tools. We are making a start with an audio podcast version of Emma Burnett’s webinar presentation [Foto by Stuart Miles] but we are expecting to use podcasting in other ways in the future as well (e.g. SDHI seminars and events, interviews). At the moment we are using audio podcasting only. Hope you will be enjoying this service.
Emma Burnett, Lecturer in the School of Nursing & Midwifery at the University of Dundee presented a very informative Webinar on how to use social media in research. Emma is currently a PhD student and has made use of the numerous opportunities that Twitter for example present for PhD students to network, provide social support and share information and resources. Emma also spoke about how social media can be used to disseminate research findings to broad and targeted audiences for impact. Social media are here to stay and it is useful to reflect about how to engage with these technologies in a meaningful and safe way. If you have missed Emma’s talk, you can listen to it here on our website. You have the choice between an audio podcast and the webinar that includes the full slide presentation (available shortly).
