Here is a Storify of the tweets from the Worldviews Pre-conference on April 16th.
This blog post addresses the way that early-career academics feel encouraged to engage in public or interactive communication, yet find that the professional assessment of these activities is still fairly low – and that the professional “risk” isn’t the same for everyone.
On July 18 2013, this piece was re-posted on the LSE Impact Blog titled “More attention should be paid to the risks facing early career researchers in encouraging wider engagement”.
I presented at this conference last Friday with Dr. Grace Pollock, Alexandra Epp, and Danielle Martak. Our presentation was titled, “The Public Intellectuals Project at McMaster University: A Case Study in Social Media Use”. Below is the preliminary version of the Prezi, which I hope to update later with a more complete version of the talk and additional resources relating to the PIP.
I have the basic outline of my talk in a set of PowerPoint slides (I’ll possibly turn it into a better version on Prezi later on): Minding the Gaps: PhD Students & Social Media.
Here is the compilation of tweets from the first day of the HASTAC conference this week, in Storify form: Day 1.
The conference began with an evening plenary from Cathy Davidson, which sparked an interesting debate in the Twitter “backchannel”.
The blog posts listed below, from the first Worldviews conference in 2011, are very long and more in the form of notes than actual posts. I created these posts before I had taken to the practice of live-tweeting and then making Storify archives of the tweets.
