“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but seeing with new eyes.” ~ Marcel Proust
Welcome to social @ edu! We’re two higher education professionals and self-proclaimed social media enthusiasts. We’re here to present new eyes and a new perspective on higher education and social media. One of the two has a reputation for being slow to change, where decision is made by committee and a life of thought and reflection is highly regarded. The other in this dynamic duo has a reputation for lightning speed changes, where decision feels rarely in the hands of the user and a life of expression is highly regarded. In our minds, this begs a few questions. How do these two worlds blend? What are the current trends & challenges in this integration? How can you utilize the dynamic tools and nature of social media to educate? To inspire? To promote development? We’ll look at these ideas and more on a weekly basis. Join us for the journey.
To learn more about us, we invite you to read our “About” pages. And, of course, we encourage comments. Lots and lots of comments. We are social enthusiasts, after all.
