“I feel much more equipped now to talk about how to move about in the social media world. Basically before I knew and used Facebook, LinkedIn and a bit of Twitter – but now I feel like I can use and strategize with more tools, thereby expanding my network and making the information I (and others) produce more accessible and visually pleasing.”
Our ‘Engage’ programme of social media training which ran in Michaelmas term this year is now ‘award winning’. The team have won the 1st UCISA Amber Miro Memorial Award for Technology Innovation.
