GPCB438 - Academic Networking on Twitter

Twitter is a great medium for budding academics: connect with peers at other universities, follow researchers in your field, find out about exciting new research, and much more. But… how to start? This workshop gives a brief introduction of twitter lingo and etiquette, and provides a space for you to carve out why, what, and to whom you’ll be tweeting. Participants should come with their twitter account already set up.

Learning Objectives

After this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Articulate the goals for their twitter account
- Explain the basics of twitter
- Create different kinds of tweets tailored to their twitter goals
- Strategize for how to grow their twitter presence

Leaders Information

This workshop will be led by Esther Schott.

Esther investigates how babies learn language, and in particular what bilingual infants know about their language environment. On Twitter, she promotes her own research, solicits advice for her research and teaching, live-tweets conferences, and once organized a conference symposium in 24h by sending a single tweet!

This workshop is not scheduled at this time.
