23 Things Twitter Chat

We run Twitter/Tweet Chats throughout the year.  The conversations can be viewed and responded to  at anytime by following the @EdUni23Things Twitter account and responding to questions and tweets on the hashtag .

Our first Twitter Chat of the 2018/19 season will run on Thursday November 15th 11am – 1pm (GMT)

I’ll be posting a series of questions from the @EdUni23Things Twitter account about micro-blogging and using Twitter as a tool for specific teaching, learning, and research purposes, along with questions about branding yourself and creating a curated digital footprint. Join in by responding to the questions and conversations on the day.

If you’ve never participated in a Twitter Chat before, I’d recommend reading through this curated Wakelet of one of our 2017 Twitter chats which provides handy guidance on how to reply to tweets and follow twitter conversations:

Can’t make it at this date/time? No problem! You can also join in at any time. The conversations can be viewed and responded to whenever you like by following the @EdUni23Things Twitter account and responding to questions and tweets on the hashtag #23EdCh.
