The goal of this workshop is to examine and discuss how educators and researchers can adopt and use social media tools such as blogs, wikis, micro-blogging (e.g. Twitter), social bookmarking tools, photo-sharing sites (e.g. Flickr), or social networking tools (e.g. Facebook) in the service of their teaching and research, and, particularly, in engaging with students and other researchers.

We will cover the following topics in the workshop:
a. A catalogue of social media tools that can support teaching and research dialogues
b. Tips for social networking
c. Digital professionalism for educators and researchers
d. Social media etiquette for educators and researchers
