PhD+: Online Identity

February 5, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm  |  Stevenson Fireside Lounge


Learn how to perfect your online identity and social media presence as an academic or higher ed professional.

Melissa De Witte (Web Coordinator, Social Sciences) will lead a discussion about how you can build your social media presence as an academic.

Whether you are a novice or an expert, a technophobe or an early adopter, this interactive talk will discuss the dos and don’ts, tips, strategies, common mistakes, and ways you can make the most out of social media in academia.

Melissa De Witte handles the digital and social media for the Division of Social Sciences here at UC Santa Cruz. She has an MA in Media, Culture and Communication from New York University.

Lunch will be served, as usual.
