Social Media Mad

August 30 @ 12:00 - 13:00 AEST


Researchers are increasingly expected to handle their own marketing and promotion. Yet, the best most universities do is tell you to “use social media” or “make a website” or “write a blog”.

But, you can do SO much better than that.

What to expect

  • 15 Weekly meetings in a group of up to 20 people.
  • Mondays from 12 pm to 1 pm Melbourne (Australia) time.
  • Via zoom, which allows recording and play back later.
  • Support using the common social and web channels such LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, twitter and YouTube.
  • Build an avatar (ideal follower)
  • Create content in each session
  • Leverage your academic outputs (journal articles, grants, presentations) for greater social media use
  • Troubleshoot engagement, access, growth issues
  • Share experiences with others
  • To be kept to account
  • Support between meetings
  • Social media growth and engagement


What you’ll need

  • Sound work ethic
  • Computer, internet connection, camera and mic
  • Positive attitude
  • Willingness to work with me and others in the group

When does it run?

  • Term 3 – 30 Aug to 6 Dec
  • Mondays from 12pm  to 1pm (Melbourne, Australia time).
