Workshop "Infographics, microblogs, and other digital literacies: Multimodal approaches for innovative dissemination of research"
The surge of digital literacy apps and tools is affording us exciting opportunities to communicate research in novel ways. In this workshop, we will explore three different ways to create multimodal digital texts to present and disseminate our research. Participants will be able to practice the 10 steps necessary to create and develop infographics, microblogs, and slide sharing to help increase the impact of their research on science and society in online spaces. They will also be given some tips on how to use social media to help the visibility of their research outside of their typical academic circles.
Speaker: M. Sidury Christiansen, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor of Applied Linguistics at the University of Texas at San Antonio and a former Fulbright Scholar. She specializes in the research and teaching of sociolinguistics and digital literacies among bilinguals and transnational populations. Her research explores the intersection between digital literacy and language ideologies, identities, and culture.
Target audience: HSE teachers, researchers, and graduate students
