The course convenors are media scholar and ardent blogger Dr. Linda Duits and Drs. Rosan Gompers, management consultant and expert in the field of innovation in organizations.

About the workshop

In the workshop you will learn how you can become an even better scientist by using blogging and social media. Duits and Gompers will discuss the different ways in which web 2.0 can help academics to become more visible online and share scientific insights with colleagues, press and the general public.

After completion the participant will have gained insights into the possibilities that social media offer on the topics of spreading knowledge and personal branding. Also, the participant will know the terminology, functionality and user culture of Twitter and LinkedIn.
