 Teaching with Social Media 

As social media becomes increasingly ingrained in the daily lives of students, instructors have turned to popular tools like Twitter, Facebook and blogs to engage students and enhance learning in their classes.  In this workshop, we will explore how social media may be used to promote dialogue and collaboration with and among students.  By considering three unique applications of social media in courses in journalism, the natural sciences, and the humanities, participants will reflect on how they may productively make use of these tools in their own teaching.
