Twitter:  Forbid It, Ignore It, or Use It?
Insight and Implementation

May 13, 2011 at 2pm ET - free to all.  

Presenters: Derek Bruff, Vanderbilt University, and special guest, Jeremy Littau, Assistant Professor of Journalism and Communication, Lehigh University

You may have heard of the micro-blogging service Twitter as a way to share what you had for breakfast, hear the latest news from celebrities like Lady Gaga, or support a democratic revolution.  But what good is Twitter as a tool in higher education -- particularly in teaching and in faculty and staff professional development?  In this session, Derek Bruff will walk us through the basics of Twitter and talk sensibly about the pros and cons of its current and potential uses in higher education.  Under what circumstances and for what purposes can Twitter be more than a distraction?

PS:  Aren't these the same issues that arise with most new tech options, especially the social networking kind?  A lot of this is about undertstanding that "social networking" means learning how to be more than a passive node - how to use these tools to learn from and help colleagues;  students?

NOTE:  Login instructions for the session will be sent in the Registration Confirmation Email. Please check your Junk folder as sometimes these emails get trapped there. We will also send an additional login reminder 24 hours prior to the start of the event.
