Learning Services regularly run workshops to both students and staff on how to effectively use Social Media to help engage their learning at University Campus Suffolk. We include sessions in the student inductions and the early adopters Get Ahead sessions.
We thought it would be nice to gather a couple of success stories of how students have been using social media to showcase it's effective use while we run our workshops and sessions.
Pam Ramsden and Geraldine Barker gave up their time to talk to us about their experiences, you can listen to our discussion below.
The examples both Pam and Geraldine gave, highlight two very different ways of using Social Media and these stories will hopefully help reinforce our message that the effective use of social media for learning can help gather resources and connect with peers and professionals based around your discipline.
If you would like to know more, keep an eye on Learning Services publications as we run social media workshops where get to run a more hands on approach to the subject.
