Engaged Researcher - Social Media for Public Engagement

Wed 19 Jun 2024


Are you ready to start using social media in a more professional capacity? Maybe you want to use social media to share your research and connect with other academics but don’t know where to start. Perhaps you have a love-hate relationship with social media & wouldn’t be on it unless you had to be. You might even have the “LinkedIn ick” or the “Instagram dread” about posting and sharing.

In this in-person, social media training session, we will cover Facebook groups / Instagram & LinkedIn pages. We will talk about how they differ from each other and which one is best for your “personal brand” and research.

We will look at the functions. We will also think about how to post, what to post and how to get over any icks, fears and blocks. I hope you will come away from this training session with actionable tips and tools and feel more positive about sharing your expertise and finding your network.

Emilie Silverwood Cope has worked in marketing and sales for over 25 years and spent the last 7 years as a social media manager and trainer. She has run Social Media accounts within the education sector across various platforms. She too has a love-hate relationship with social media.
