Social ScholarOnline Learning: Developing trends. User expectations of what learning is and how it is offered and supported are changing dramatically and rapidly. Remaining relevant is the most significant challenge for organisations working in this new world. How might we respond to these challenges.

This month, for the Social Scholar, Myles Runham, Head of Online, BBC Academy will be talking with us about his experience of using social media. The BBC has long created online education and learning content but the promotional and discoverability side of this is less widely discussed. This seminar, therefore, offers us an opportunity to find out how the BBC uses social media, why they use it, and what benefits they expect to gain from it.

The Social Scholar is a series of lunchtime seminars from the School of Advanced Study, providing training on social media in the research environment. In these sessions we hope to learn together about how to better use social media in a professional capacity and what the difficulties and issues are.  The series will look at blogs, Twitter, Facebook, and other social media services.

All Social Scholar seminars are free to attend and open to all.

Please register via Eventbrite.

As per usual we will be tweeting from the event @SASNews using the hashtag: #socialscholar.
