On 24 April Marc Dobson and Andrew Stewart from the Jisc BCE Team held a lunchtime webinar on the use of Social Media for BCE. Around 50 people from across the spectrum of BCE took part in an interactive and engaging session.
During the webinar, we talked about the different types of social media, offered advice and guidance on its use and presented some examples of effective social media engagement in a BCE context. Topics covered included:
- A brief overview of social media, including some of the platforms available and its use across Education as a whole
- The need for a social media strategy, and what to consider
- General guidance and best practice when using social media channels, including some pitfalls to avoid
- Specific examples of the use of social media in a BCE context
