Workshop for the Association for the Teaching of Psychology Conference 2013 at Keele University.

Workshop overview: The use of social media is now everyday and commonplace, embedded into many peoples social lives. We are in a period of disruption and rapid adaptation where the opportunities and challenges of social media communication require our constant attention. As the online and offline worlds traverse, particularly within educational contexts, various professional and ethical dilemmas can arise when creating learning communities online. This workshop aims to unravel the complexities of how students construct themselves online and explore how teachers can enhance learning through social media platforms. A psychological perspective can help teachers understand their online activities and the potential of social media for engaging students. This workshop will also consider the importance of social media for students’ employability and how it might assist in their transition to employment or higher education.
