New program equips modern researchers


  • Griffith’s new social media program is helping researchers tweet, link and post their way to the top.

Information Services launched Social Media for Visibility and Impact this month, a program designed for higher degree and early career researchers.

The aim of the program is to increase the awareness and use of social media tools (Twitter, blogs, Academia.edu and ResearchGate etc) to communicate research, engage scholarly communities for collaboration, as well as participating in discussions and debates of currency.

The program, facilitated by Griffith’s Social Media Advisor Julie Blakey, will equip researchers with social media skills that will increase the visibility and impact of their research and assist in building their research profile.

The workshops will continue over the next few weeks with the following sessions planned for the Gold Coast and Nathan campuses:

  • 28 November 2013: Griffith Sciences (GC), 11am โ€“ Noon, (G11_3.60)
  • 2 December 2013: Arts, Education and Law (NA), 11am โ€“ Noon, (N53_0.60)
  • 5 December 2013: Arts, Education and Law (GC), 11am โ€“ Noon (G11_3.61)

To RSVP or for more information contact Julie Blakey (j.blakey@griffith.edu.au).
