I hope to gain digital skills, knowledge and experience from the 23 Things programme to apply to my current and future studies at university.
Were you aware of the University’s Social Media Guidelines for Staff and Researchers or the student Social Media Student Handbook? No.
What do you think of the guidelines/handbook?
I think the guidelines/handbook is informative especially the do’s and don’t’s for social media content and the material that can and cannot be commented on social media posts and the flowchart was very useful.
Looking forward to the 23 things programme.
Have a great night,
