Integrating Social Media into Learning and Teaching Seminar

Where: Y3A T1
Registration essential: email

Professor Catharine Lumby and Dr Nicole Anderson were funded in 2013 by the Education Studio under the Innovation and Scholarship Program to explore the integration of social media into Learning and Teaching practice at Macquarie University. As part of their research, they conducted a survey of Macquarie’s full time, part time and casual academics, and achieved a high response rate.

The seminar, which is open to all Macquarie staff, will share key findings  from the survey and the recommendations that flow from the research.
