Map My Research

Monday, July 2nd, 2018

When I first got made a Tef I was asked by someone how I was planning to track my contribution – which made me think about mapping my contribution and I’m so glad I did. What I’ve been doing since then is plotting conferences, workshops, projects etc on a google map. I’ve found it a really easy way to keep a track of the different strands of things I do (Social Media workshops, Hidden Object Games, Board games etc) and adding a new pin somewhere is a great way of showing the wide ranging impact of my research.

As a newly minted Teaching Excellence Fellow I attended my first forum and presented my project  – which according to the brochure I said I’d do this:

“Nia’s project will centre on developing the use and reflective practices when using social media. She is also keen to grow the research community within the University and will produce a series of best practice guides for staff to cultivate their own educational social media presences.”

So for now I’m running a friendly, adhoc service of answering the call of anyone who wants social media help and I’m writing up guides like this one on using Facebook with students – but I’ve found a novel way of keeping track of what I’ve been doing.
