Yesterday Matt Sparks, Kenar Jhaveri, and I ran a social media workshop at the NKF Spring Clinical Meeting. We were given the opportunity to do a workshop rather than a few lectures, so we really focused on making the workshop interactive. As such we did not have a slide deck, but rather created a website with all of the content.
The workshop operated by having Matt and I narrate our experience as we navigated the website from introduction through professionalism. The participants created a blog post and tweeted and debated ethical issues in social media. It was an information dense two hours. We thought it went great.
Take a look at the materials here.
The Twitter4Nephrons, disappeared from the primary navigation bar at the top of the site. It can now be found in the about folder.
One of the reasons we built a Facebook page was to provide a place to have a discussion around the article that was not as fast paced and conversational as Twitter. I will be posting the topics and some of the interesting points of the discussion to the Facebook page. Let's see if that provides people who cannot make the twitter chat a second place to catch up and comment on the article.
