Making #SocialMedia Work to Your Educational Advantage | Enilda Romero-Hall | #TEDxUTampa [video]

Almost exactly two-months ago I gave this talk at the TEDxUTampa event hosted and organized by undergraduate University of Tampa students. The video is now uploaded to the TEDx Talks YouTube channel. I am excited to share this in my blog and I welcome constructive feedback (keyword: “constructive”). Also, please feel free to share it with others if you believe in my message:

“Instead of solely focusing on the ‘bad’ or ‘thinking of social media as a waste of time’ ┬áit is imperative that we find innovative ways to use and repurpose this online social environments in a manner that is safe, ethical, and beneficial to us.”

If you have 13 minutes to spare, here is the video:

Application for CSSME Student Travel Funds #UTampa

To support student engagement in professional and research activities, the CSSME Dean (Jack Geller) is making College funds available to partially support faculty-led and independent student travel to local, regional, national, or international meetings, conferences, symposia, and workshops. Full-time faculty members and students interested in applying for funds are encouraged to apply early in the planning process. In the face of limited funding, priority may be given to students who are presenting a paper, chairing a session, or otherwise actively participating in the event.
