In order to support members of the ISLS community with public engagement, the society is hosting an interactive panel event.

This hour-long session will explore how learning scientists can productively use social media to support and disseminate their research and bridge research and practice communities. A panel with a breadth of online experiences will speak about how they use social media to engage with existing online communities, disseminate findings, share educational resources, collaborate and learn with others, and publicize their research. Other topics will include growing an online network, participating in social media discussions, dealing with trolls and online harassment, and using social media to expand your understanding of different worldviews and perspectives. Attendee Q&A included.

Invited Panelists:

  • Aireale Rodgers (University of Southern California)
