Using Social Media for Teaching and Learning

Social media tools, such as Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, are changing the way students and faculty communicate, share ideas, and build networks. The interest in social media is increasing, and the educational community is looking to harness the potential of these resources to improve teaching and learning while also being mindful of privacy concerns.  The Center for Teaching and Learning will host a group viewing of this live web conference produced by Academic Impressions, which will showcase effective uses of social media in student learning.  The session will describe ways to use social media to create experiential learning activities, improve student interactivity and engagement, and develop community and professional networks.
