Social media and digital tools are now a staple of many researcher practices and have brought new dimensions to publishing, finding and organising information, problem solving and results sharing.

But what does it really mean to be ‘a digital academic’? How can you build your online academic profile via social media?  Maybe you don’t think you have time or you don’t know what to do first. Do hiring committees actually care about your ‘digital academic impact’?

To help you identify the must-have technologies and tools for being a modern digital academic and the skills to manage them successfully, jobs.ac.uk and Piirus are hosting an exclusive half-day workshop event.

    Morning guys!

    Oh my goodness it is SO cold this morning. I’m not sure if I can feel my feet – and I am wearing two pairs of socks. Thats just how bad.

    So I am reblogging a post which was initially on the stylish academic’s blog. This seminar (please refer to post) will focus on how to become ‘ a digital academic’. The key speakers will be Dr Inger Mewburn (Thesis Whisper) …(Star struck LOLLLLL) and Dr Nadine Muller ( The New Academic). I am soooo taking selfies with them.

Tell us what you think!
