Social Media for PhD Researchers
NB: A workshop running at Ulster in Feb 2020 has been opened up to DTP PhD Researchers who can watch remotely.
Over two hours we’ll look at how social media tools can be used confidently to develop your professional reputation as a researcher and establish a network among other academics working in your field. The two-hour session will be followed by an hour-long clinic where you can stay behind to talk over questions, challenges and concerns one-to-one.
