Social media is increasingly recognised as an important feature of academic life and institutions are investing in training sessions to help doctoral students towards this. However, what this training consists of, and how sessions are best run is less clear. In this post, Mark Carrigan and Ana Isabel Canhoto share their experience of designing and delivering online social media training “bootcamps”. They highlight the advantages of regular, online sessions over the traditional model of a one-off face-to-face workshop in terms of inclusivity, learning and networking.
