As someone who uses Social Media for Science Communication, and now teaching (see previous posts for details), I’ve been wondering about the effectiveness of Twitter and Facebook to pass on information to my students, such as timetable changes, coursework reminders etc.We have a Twitter account for Chemistry at Keele (@keelechem), and some students follow my personal account, but by no means all. Thus information passed on in this way will not reach all the intended recipients. Possibly a Facebook page is a better solution because anyone can visit it, and they just have to ‘like’ it to get updates. With my teaching page I put timetable information there as well as links to teaching material, but that’s just for my teaching. Perhaps a Chemistry Teaching Page would be worth setting up? I would be interested to hear if anyone else is trying something like this. In the meantime my Teaching Pages seem to be appreciated by the classes I’m taking, but these are still early times!
