Summer is typically the time when academics use to delve into research, writing, and brushing up on skills.
We’re here to help with a new series on digital media skills for academics. Beginning this week and continuing through July, we’ll feature posts on how to use Twitter, Blogging, Op-Eds, Podcasts, Digital Research and Analytics.
In the digital era, media skills are increasingly important for scholars to build an audience for their research. Here at JustPublics@365, we think hybrid training – in traditional academic research and digital media skills – is crucial for fostering collaborations between scholars, activists, and journalists in ways that further social justice.
Previously, we’ve hosted discussions here about the ways in which scholarly communication is changing. Building on these conversations, our latest series deepens and expands the work of our successful MediaCamp workshops. We’ll be offering some of these workshops at the August meeting of the American Sociological Association in San Francisco.
This is also a good time to remind you about some of our other resources and skills guides we have put together, such as:
- Social Media Toolkit
- Mapping Social Inequities: Using Evernote for Evidence-Gathering
- 5 Steps for Counter Story-telling using Storify
- Guide to Good Presentations
We encourage you to use and share all of these resources and check back with us for more!
