ASC-WA Event Review: SciComm Superpowers – Social Media

(Talks and Q&A) 28 April 2014 (UWA)

On 28 April, the first “SciComm Superpowers” event was held at UWA. This was the first in a series planned by the ASC-WA committee, in response to feedback from our July 2013 networking dinner. Through “SciComm Superpowers”, we would like to showcase talent and expertise that we have in the ASC-WA branch so members get to know each other better and know who to turn to for advice or collaboration. At the first event in this series, ASC-WA President Teresa Belcher and Vice President Wiebke Ebeling gave presentations on “Using social media for professional science communication”.(10 attendees, 8 were ASC members).
