Welcome to the programme

This course gives participants the opportunity to consider the implications of using web 2.0 tools and technologies (also known as social media, social software, new or emerging technologies) on their online (and consequently research) identity as well potential legal and ethical impacts.

The programme runs on Thursday 11th December 2014 from 2.30pm – 4.30pm.

See the Blogs, Twitter wikis and other web-based tools page on the Graduate School website for further information.

Writing for Wikipedia workshop

On Thursday 6 June, John Cummings, Wikimedian in Residence at the Natural History Museum and Science Museum led a workshop including presentations by the President of Imperial Wikipedians as well as current teaching case studies from Prof Henry Rzepa (Chemistry) and Dr Steve Cook (Life Sciences).

The session aimed to give participants a brief overview of Wikipedia, the Wikimedia Foundation, a couple of practical case studies as well a brief introduction to editing Wikipedia.

If you are interested in who is on Twitter at Imperial College London, I have just updated the list I created twelve months ago.
