Social Media in Learning & Teaching at SHU

Using this site 
This site has been put together to provide Sheffield Hallam staff with guidance on how to use social media in their teaching practice. It will evolve over time, but for now you should find it useful no matter whether you are getting to grips with social media, or looking for inspiration. 

The resources aim to guide you through the early stages of considering social media in learning and teaching. We will be adding more guidance addressing the pedagogic application of social media, and the student experience soon.

Student guidance
We've developed some resources for our students (though they are useful for anyone) covering responsible use of social media; managing your digital footprint and using social media for learning. We welcome feedback on these as they will certainly develop over time.

Take a look yourself, and then share this link with your students:

SHU Social Media case studies
At the SHU social media event in May, eleven colleagues, with experience of using social media in their teaching (-for employability, showcasing, collaboration, ideas gathering) came together to share their practice with colleagues. 

Several of their students also gave up their time to come and talk about what the experience had meant for them, how they had collaborated and in some cases their role in driving these activities. 

We've captured each of these examples and turned them into case studies. Visit the main case studies page for a complete overview and links to each of the them. We will soon be adding the case studies from the January Social media event.
