Learn How Social Media Can Be Used for Student Support, Teaching, Research, Training and Development, and Transforming Higher Education

Social media is transforming the way our higher education institutions teach, learn, support, and research.  Social media can be defined as “virtual places where people share; everybody and anybody can share anything anywhere anytime” (Joosten, 2012, p. 14). Higher education institutions are utilizing social media to communicate and engage their campus community; however very few are examining the impact and implications of social media guidance.

Educational institutions are considering innovative ways to develop faculty, students and staff with engaging new technologies. The connected features of social media have inspired a growing number of educators to consider the impact these technologies can have on learning.  Web 2.0 provides the ability to collaborate in a virtual community culture for social and innovative learning, which motivates students. It is up to our educational organizations to consider the process and guidelines to best meet the needs of our campus environments.

With the increasing use of social media and individuals preferring to use social media instead of other communication tools, many educators are examining how to effectively implement social media in our higher education institutions. Institutions are using social media to communicate with their community and seeking effective ways to implement social media on their campuses in order to engage students inside and outside the classroom. These institutions are making decisions on how to support and encourage social media use while considering the costs and implications.

This webinar by expert speaker Laura Pasquini, Ph.D., will examine the roles of the learner, instructor, and researcher; specifically how they are evolving and changing at many of our post-secondary education institutions. From research and practical applications, this session will detail the current state of social media guidance in post-secondary education and identify key elements of guiding principles that offer suggestions for student support, teaching, training and development, research, infrastructure, and more.
