Led by Dr Shailey Minocha.

The goal of this workshop is to examine and discuss how early career researchers and their supervisors can adopt and use social media tools in the service of their research, and, particularly, in engaging in the discourse of their research. In the workshop, we will present a suite of resources that can guide the researchers to develop and maintain a social media strategy to support research dialogues.

We will cover the following topics in the workshop:

a. A catalogue of social media tools that can support research dialogues
b. Tips for social networking in a researcher's persona
c. Digital professionalism for researchers
d. Checklist on social media etiquette for researchers
e. Using Apps on mobile phone and on iPad to support research
