Over the last decade, there has been an increase in online and Web 2.0 technologies that provide access to a vast amount of information and new ways of communicating and collaborating.

This workshop will examine how researchers can use digital technologies in the service of their research, and in particular for engaging in the discourse of research. The outcomes from the recent Vitae Digital Researcher event and the The Open University's Innovate project on the use of digital technologies in researcher training and development will be presented to demonstrate the role of social media and e-learning tools in research activities.
