Engagement with social media can bring rewards in public and academic spaces. Scientists have begun to embrace social media channels as viable tools for communicating research, and for keeping abreast of advancements in their fields. Tweeting and blogging about scientific findings has been shown to increase research impact.

  • Understand the value of your online professional brand and assist you to develop the necessary skills.
  • Raise your profile and increase your citation rates.
  • Promote your research.
  • Create networks and collaborations.
  • Maximise your impact by increasing your academic footprint and publishing across multiple platforms such as journals, blogs and social media.

Programs and tools covered include, LinkedIn, Twitter, ResearchGate, and Buffer. Workshops can be tailored to meet the needs of organisations if other social media platforms are required.

Other platforms and tools for consideration include – google+, Facebook, Instagram, Pintrest, Academia.edu, Impact Story, and Sumall.

Words from our raving fans!

  • Great workshop. Was interactive and practical.

  • Great practical value!

    Tamika’s approach to teaching the value and power of social media was both practical and excellent. She stimulated interest in the course material in an engaging and well organised way. The overall feedback from the participants was overwhelmingly positive. The true value of this workshop was revealed over the following 3 days at our scientific retreat where participants sent and responded to multiple tweets and LinkedIn stories of the latest advances being presented at the retreat.  I would highly recommend this workshop.

  • Thank you

    I’d like to thank Tamika from Knowledge Translation Australia for the excellent presentation I attended on Twitter. I learnt so many things and it has really helped me understand how to get more followers and the small things I need to be careful of. Since attending the course I have been getting several new followers every day. I would highly recommend you attend this course for your business.
