This week, Amanda Peralta and I led a training workshop for Duke faculty interested in using social media to build a public presence.
The Office of News and Communications organized this session. We opened by introducing three Duke faculty members — Laurent Dubois, Robin Kirk and Peter Ubel — who are regular users of social media tools such as blogs, Twitter and Facebook. They described their experiences with social media, including what has and hasn’t worked for them and how they’ve incorporated social media into their classes.
In the second half of the program, Amanda and I led a discussion about how to be strategic in your use of social media, review accepted best practices and related topics.
Here are some resources for Duke faculty following the discussion:
- The slidedeck from the session.
- A handout on tips and tricks for using blogs, Twitter and Facebook.
- Visit lynda.com and review the “Twitter Essential Training” webinar.
