Students discuss social media at conference

Two first year journalism students took part in a special learning and teaching conference on Using Social Media in teaching last week.

Writing the Message Online students Eleanor Ingleby and Oli Constable talked to lecturers across the university about how social media was used in their module and which particular elements they found most useful.

They were invited to the event by their module leader Lily Canter who was impressed with their use of Twitter at a live reporting activity at Varsity 2014.

Organisers of the event said: “We’d like to thank the students involved who were so enthusiastic, keen to share and happy to give up their timewe can safely say their effort was appreciated by all who came.”
