What is social media good for, and how can you make best use of it?
Basic Sciences is considering running a workshop and/or a panel discussion on the use of social media in our professional lives. Whether you have no experience at all or whether you’re a #ScienceTwitter veteran, we want to know if you would find this opportunity beneficial. If you’re a Vanderbilt faculty member, a lab manager, or simply someone who manages a lab’s social media accounts, please fill out our survey to let us know your thoughts.
