This weeks #OTalk is about tweeting at conferences and other events and will be hosted by the OTalk Team.
Tweeting at real time events has many benefits; it gives promotion to the event, cause or Profession, allows you to share your views, it offers those not in attendance a chance to gain insight into the event and share in the learning opportunity and it can also be used as a reflective tool.
This chat aims to give you some hints and tips by finding out how those in the community share via Twitter, discuss what they feel helps their learning and highlight some common pitfalls and hurdles.
Some questions to consider;
Do you Tweet at events and why? If not, why not?
What are the positives? Whats your preferred way to share at events? What have you found most useful?
Are there any negatives? Perhaps you feel live tweeting detracts from the event? How do we overcome the barriers?
What are your “top tips”? Ours is don’t forget the hash tag!
Is there anything else that would encourage you to share more, to engage or to share differently?
If you are new to Tweeting, at conferences or in general, why not give it ago at this weeks OT Show? If you get stuck or have any questions you can stop by the #OTalk stand (we are J66) and we will be happy to support you!
