Social Media Research and Practice in Higher Education #sxswEDU logo

Back in March I served on a panel along with Liz Gross, Ed Cabellon, and Greg Heiberger at the #sxswEDU conference. Here are some of the highlights:

  1. Greg and I talk about our latest research on using Twitter to support students throughout their first year of college.
  2. I summarize my recent research on using Facebook in education.
  3. Greg explores the future of higher education and how new technologies can be used to effectively improve student success.
  4. Liz discusses how to use Facebook to market your institution and programs.
  5. Ed explains how to frame productive social media use to administrators.
  6. I get snarky about EdTech startups and how they don’t communicate with educators.

  • Where can we see the last slide you talk about that “condenses 28 years of engagement research into one image”? Thanks!

  • There is so much research that looks at Facebook and Twitter. I have to say this is an interesting approach to the subject. I just kept thinking of all the possible intervening variables that might be involved with the research. Well done though.
