Social media training for scientists


Science Media Space is for scientists who want to learn how to maximise their use of social media. The online course delivers 10 modules over 3 weeks, showing scientists how they can use a range of social media tools and practices more effectively to maximise their interactions with the broader public. Our next course starts Monday 25 November 2013.

Course modules address topics such as why social media is important, how to write good tweets, Facebook posts and blogs, how to overcome bloggers’ block, guidelines for social media interaction and how to create the ultimate online profile. Scientists can complete the tasks in our dedicated forum in the comfort of their home, office or lab. Daily feedback on modules and activities will be given by us at Bridge8  and Econnect Communication.

Here’s what some of our past participants have had to say:

We’d encourage you to share with your professional networks and encourage scientists not on social media to give it a try. Register at
