For a week in late March, I guest-hosted the rocur (rotation curation) account @iamscicomm. My initial motivation for hosting the account was to disseminate recent research on science communication and graduate training. Hosting this account would allow me to have a greater reach than the reach of my and my colleagues twitter followers. My hope was that by engaging with a community that’s already excited about #scicomm, I could move past sharing our work into engaging in a dialogue. I’m so pleased that our work was discussed with such excitement and that it was shared over 75 times during the week.
Amanda Freise started the week by introducing me to @iamscicomm followers.
This week our host is @bhundey. Beth is an Educational Developer & Adjunct Research Professor @westernu.
