The Words on the Screen – Effective Communication in the Digital Age: Riding the digital wave and getting your message across in the age of the Internet
For researchers, the catch cry of “Publish or perish!” is now history. These days, it’s all about “Be visible or vanish!” And visibility is now primarily digital. This session looks at establishing a digital footprint, using social media to its best advantage, blogging, pod- and VOD-casting, and fitting all this into your already overloaded schedule. It will look equally at creation and propagation as you work your digital presence to become an in-demand ‘go-to’ person in your field.
