Social media training for scientists


Science Media Space <http://sciencemediaspace.com.au/>  is for
scientists who want to learn how to maximise their use of social media.
The online course delivers 10 modules over 3 weeks, showing scientists
how they can use a range of social media tools and practices more
effectively to maximise their interactions with the broader public. Our
next course starts Monday 25 November 2013.

Course modules address topics such as why social media is important, how
to write good tweets, Facebook posts and blogs, how to overcome
bloggers' block, guidelines for social media interaction and how to
create the ultimate online profile. Scientists can complete the tasks in
our dedicated forum in the comfort of their home, office or lab. Daily
feedback on modules and activities will be given by us at Bridge8  and
Econnect Communication.

Here's what some of our past participants have had to say:

*	The activities and modules were great and moved at a comfortable
and logical pace. When I was unsure on how to complete an activity it
was great to read an example as well as any already completed by other
*	The help and feedback in this course was great. It's nice to do
a course where you actually get a reply quite quickly to questions.
*	Having a 'safe space' to practice blogging was really key for

We'd encourage you to share with your professional networks and
encourage scientists not on social media to give it a try. Register at
