Book Review: Social Media in Higher Education

I was aware of Chris Rowell’s call to action over a year ago, asking for interest in contributions to an idea he had, an academic text highlighting the benefits, techniques, results, and possible pitfalls on using ‘social media’ as part of online or classroom-based instruction.

At the time I didn’t have the time to submit a contribution myself, although the will was definitely there, I was active in sharing Chris’s progress as he worked with the contributors and navigating the world of self-publishing. I am really happy to say Chris has completed the project and has just sent me a copy as a ‘thank you’ and for a review.

“How does social media affect working life in Higher Education? The diverse and expert contributors analyse the many ways social media can be used to enhance teaching and learning, research, professional practice, leadership, networking and career development. The impact of social media is evaluated critically, with an eye both to the benefits and the problems of using these new forms of digital communication.” Chris Rowell
