Social media for research impact

This training is open to all ESRC and non-ESRC funded PhD and MA Social Research students within the WRDTP’s seven partner universities. PGRs from all seven interdisciplinary Pathways are welcome to attend.

This 2 hour workshop will focus upon:
1. Finding your audience on social media
2. Working with the algorithm to build your network
3. The types of content you should create to educate, inspire and motivate your audience
4. Creating a content strategy for different platforms
5. The basics of short form video messaging
6. Evaluating your social media impact.

This will be an interactive session so come prepared to share ideas! By the end of the session you will have a framework for developing a content strategy and a script for short form video to share your research. It would be helpful if students bring a research topic with them to the session.
