Social Media: Understanding and exploiting its potential for research
This session will introduce you to a range of social media tools and the digital research practices they enable. Participants will have an opportunity to enhance their digital presence and explore a variety of approaches to networking and collaborating online.

There will be opportunity to discuss and debate issues and concerns with other researcher staff who are already successfully exploiting the opportunities afforded by social media.
Topics covered will include:
