Monday 18th February – Set your Twitter accounts to Stun!

Learners on the Library Foundation Degree courses in Grwp Llandrillo Menai and Glyndwr University are linking up for the whole week through Twitter – sharing, advising, supporting and ultimately helping each group explore the possibilities of Social Media for collaboration and professional development.

Using the hashtag #FDLIB Glyndwr learners will be completing their ‘Group Work in a Week’ project to develop a marketing campaign for World Book Night. You can also follow contributions from @LlandrilloLib and @glynlib

This is hopefully the first of many Tweet-ups Library Foundation Degree course learners can take part in to link across the region and work collaboratively to see the benefits of Social Media for study, work and life! We’ll be keeping track of the conversation on the Llandrillo Library blog and on Storify, so if you can’t access Twitter during work you can still contribute.

Good luck out there!

    For even more info, check out the weeks conversation here – This was a very positive experience and the first round of feedback has also been very encouraging –

    “I felt odd sharing my ideas with strangers but I enjoyed seeing the replies”

    “we need to get used to sharing our ideas like this as professionals”

    “I’m glad we had a chance to use Twitter like this, I would be a bit nervous just joining in an anonymous or UK wide Twitter group to ask for ideas”

    “hashtags are so useful! I did not understand how they worked before”

    There were of course other suggestions to help us improve the experience for others next time –

    “it would have been helpful if everyone introduced themselves first..but maybe that’s not how it always is on Twitter??”

    “you definitely need a moderator ….. maybe this could be shared between the groups?”

    “it was difficult to track the conversation when you were new to Twitter”

    Tutors from both campuses have agreed that they would like to run a collaborative activity like this again next year, so we’ll be using learner feedback to make this an even more encouraging and useful experience.

    Diolch yn fawr to all our learners and @glynlib tutors for all your support!
