Now that the Academic Impressions webcast on social media policies is over (great turnout, by the way, with 80 institutions attending and terrific discussion in the real-time chat as well as Twitter commentary via the #aisocmedia hashtag), it’s time to promote some other worthwhile training and development opportunities coming up.
Embracing a Culture of Connectivity: Understanding the Social Media Practices of Young Adults, the HigherEdExperts.com* “master class” webinar with social media and youth culture expert danah boyd, is one you definitely don’t want to miss if you have any interest in how young adults tend to use social media. That session is coming up July 15, but the registration deadline is next Monday, July 5.
Going Mobile: How to build a mobile website for your institution in 24 hours sounds like another great web-based offering from HigherEdExperts.com. The presenter is Dave Olsen, one of the leaders in mobile web design in higher ed and the guy behind the University of West Virginia’s mobile app. This webcast will be presented Aug. 4 and features a pre-recorded demo for all registrants.
I’m sure there are many other great training opportunities coming up, but those are just a few I’m aware of. (Oh, yeah, I’m also presenting again in July, but more about that in a few days.)
* Disclosure: I’m on the HigherEdExperts.com advisory board.
