Learn to use social media to support research

CASA’s Center for Applied Research on Human Services (CARHS) offered a Brown Bag session on April 2 on “Using social media to support research, scholarship and creative activity” with faculty from the College of Applied Sciences and Arts available to speak on their own experiences using such online resources as LinkedIn, Twitter, Academia.edu and electronic journals. Scheduled speakers included Michael Stephens and Lili Luo, from the School of Information; Alessandro DiGiorgio, from Justice Studies; John Delacruz, from the School of Journalism and Mass Communications and Daniel Murphy, from Kinesiology. The speakers were anticipated to talk about how they use the online resources to disseminate and support their scholarly work and connect with other scholars with shared interests.

CARHS will host one more Brown Bag session, “Preparing internal grant applications,” with a time and date to be determined. CARHS Director Amy D’Andrade is also continuing to facilitate the CARHS mentored grant writing group and the Qualitative Research group.
