Science Media Space gives scientists the practical knowledge needed to use social media to communicate more effectively. This 3-week course from Bridge8 and Econnect Communication shows you how to use popular social media tools so that your communication efforts have more impact. In small private forums you will learn how to create a powerful social media profile, write a perfect blog, compose a retweetable tweet, and use images to engage your audience. You’ll also gain a lot of good tips from popular science bloggers and social media savvy scientists.
The course was originally subsidised by Inspiring Australia but is now costed at a reasonable fee commensurate with other professional development courses. More background can be found in our previous project post: Social media for scientists.
