The phenomena of social media and the use of social technology in HE

23 Feb 2012

Workshop on Wednesday 4 April 2012 (12.15pm to 4pm) in Sackville Street Building.

On Wednesday 4 April 2012, The University of Manchester, in conjunction with the Higher Education Academy, is holding a workshop that focuses on using web 2.0 in teaching and learning, within the Science, Technology , Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines.

This workshop uses the term ‘social media’ to refer to internet services where the online content is generated by the users of the service. Although there are other synonymous terms for such services (web 2.0, participatory media, etc), for consistency this session will use the terms social media (to describe the phenomenon) or social tools (to describe the technologies).

The workshop will take place in The University of Manchester’s Sackville Street Building and starts with lunch at 12.15pm, ending at 4pm.
