Summer Fades and the SMC Education Project Ramps Up
As summer fades away, higher education institutions begin their fall sessions and the SMC Education project ramps up. We welcome 10 returning members from our board of advisors who will be blogging here on the SMC Education Blog. They are seasoned social media professionals from both the academic and business sectors. Look for more information about them in coming posts.
This year we also are supporting both SMC Student chapters (run by students with a faculty adviser) and SMC Education chapters (run by faculty, staff and administration.) If you are interested in starting a Student or Education chapter, send an email to Terry here @SocialMediaClub.org.
Last year we expanded our scope to also include the use of Social Media by higher education institutions with both their internal and external constituents. Our mission remains “To provide leadership, guidance, facilitation and resources to students, educators, and administrators in educational organizations that will promote and enable competent usage of social media by the world’s citizens, workforces, educational institutions, and societies.” We draw on the experience, learning, and sharing of best practices and professionalism from 300,000 + social media professionals in 350 + chapters around the globe.
We invite you to join us in the sharing and learning journey through the 2012-2013 academic year.
Executive Director, Social Media Global Education Connection Project
