Twitter is the most important social media channel for research communication. It holds a lot of potential for connecting with colleagues, fostering your reputation as a researcher, and promoting your research to a wide audience. But how can you best use Twitter for your own purposes (without wasting too much energy), and how do you deal with the downsides of the medium?
The INSIGHTS project at BSE is pleased to announce its second skills training on "Twitter for Researchers." The training is aimed at post-docs and PhD students. It is equally suitable for those with no or already some experience with Twitter. You will receive hands-on training on basic Twitter skills, how to develop and implement a personalized strategy for your Twitter channel, and how to deal with pitfalls such as critical discussions and comments. The workshop will be conducted by renowned science communication expert Johanna Barnbeck with her colleague Thuy Anh Nguyen, supported by INSIGHTS members Max Peukert and Harald Wilkoszewski.
To register for the training, please send a short email with your name, institution, program, and the level of your Twitter experience to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 24. If you have any further questions regarding the the training, feel free to reach out to Max Peukert anytime. Please note that the number of participants is limited to 12 and places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. The training will take place on Zoom.
