Higher Education Digital Identity (a.k.a. #HEdigID) Chat. This Twitter chat is designed to discuss what it means to be ONLINE as a higher ed professional (e.g. staff, faculty, graduate students, etc.) today. As we work and play on social networks, linked platforms, and open media spaces, there are opportunities to connect to communities, collaborate with peers, and share our practice. That being said, digital engagement also comes with challenges, issues, or limitations we need to talk about together.
Any and all postsecondary faculty, staff, professionals, scholars, practitioners, administrators, graduate students, and leaders (really anyone in higher ed) are encouraged to JOIN and CONTRIBUTE to the Twitter conversation. There will be a TOPIC, THEME, and PROMPTS to guide the Twitter Chat over the course of the day. This “SLOW” Twitter Chat (all day) is designed to encourage and allow our colleagues from across the pond, time zones, and busy work schedules to join in the dialogue.
We will chat on Twitter on the SECOND FRIDAY of EACH month about topics related to “being online,” networked, and digitally engaged. Here’s the #HEdigID schedule, if you would like to save the date to join in:
|March 9, 2018||August 10, 2018|
|April 13, 2018||September 14, 2018|
|May 11, 2018||October 9, 2018|
|June 8, 2018||November 9, 2018|
|July 13, 2018||December 14, 2018|
I will most likely moderate (MOD) the first couple of #HEdigID chats; however, I would like to extend the invite to others in the community to moderate and/or contribute an IDEA or a TOPIC we should discuss during a Twitter chat. I plan to tap a few shoulders of other colleagues who are involved in teaching, research, and service scholarship in the area of networked scholarship, practice, and online digital identity and presence to lead a future #HEdigID Chat TOPIC.
Are you interested in being a MOD or co-MOD one week? Let me know, DM me on Twitter or send me an email about a topic you would like to chat about: techknowtoolsllc [at] gmail.com
