Nationally recognized media scholar and TWU alum (MA ‘09), Dr. Tara L. Conley presents Social Media for Thought Leadership in Higher Education: A Guided Workshop (#SM4TL). Since 2018, Dr. Conley has been featured on NPR, The Washington Post, CBS News, and CNN sharing tips and reflections for how to engage young people, parents, and educators about social media use in the information age, especially during uncertain times.
Guided by critical media literacy and narrative justice principles, Dr. Conley will share insights based on her research and work over the past decade, both inside and outside of the classroom. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in discussion and ask questions pertaining to social media use in higher education, including social media’s risks and rewards; self-presentation and publishing online; pedagogical strategies; and advocacy and activism through storytelling. Participants will also have access to post-workshop resources after the session.
