Key outputs from the #dr12vitae at Nottingham

We ran an event on using social media for research today.

I was really impressed with what participants in #dr12vitae came up with today.

Have a look at what they produced

Then at the end we got people to send an email to their future me

A great day!


Digital Researcher – Nottingham University 19th October #dr12vitae

Here is a presentation that I’ve prepared with Emma Gillaspy from Vitae. We’ll be working with a group of researchers tomorrow to try and convince them that they want to get more engaged using digital tools in their research practice.



See you online for #dr12vitae

If you’ve been following this blog you will have noticed that there is a lot of activity around an event that I keep calling #dr12vitae. The event is actually Vitae’s annual Digital Researcher event which I’ve now been involved with for three years. See all of my blog posts relating the Digital Researcher.  Essentially it is a big workshop/conference at the British Library where we try and convince researchers that there is value in getting involved in social media.

One of the good things about the event is that there will be a lot happening online over the course of today. If you have got any time to follow the event then wander along to and follow the #dr12vitae on Twitter. This year we are making a real effort to broadcast as much of the content online either before the event or on the day.

See you online!
