Are you curious about social media, but unsure how to maximize your effectiveness, or wonder if your investment in social media is worthwhile?

To address these questions, Georgia Tech ADVANCE Professors Kim Cobb for the College of Sciences, and Dana Randall, for the College of Computing, have organized a half-day workshop. In this workshop you will:

  • learn about the latest research on the pros and cons of social media use by STEM professionals (Should you do it?)
  • share and discuss strategies for effective engagement with colleagues and seasoned social media experts (How should you do it?)
  • design a strategy for your own effective engagement, including identifying audience and key messages (Let’s do it!)

Register here.

Paige Jarreau, science communication specialist at Louisiana State University, will keynote the workshop with the talk: "Social Media: Engaging for Impact in STEM Fields."
