Meet, Greet, and Tweet

Thursday, May 14, 2020

Social media is playing an increasing role in how learners, educators, and researchers engage in the academic community. This fun, first-of-its-kind event involves some of EM’s biggest social media influencers, giant face cutouts (yes, like the kind you see at athletic events), a live Twitter feed, and refreshments.  Participants will learn first-hand from some of EM’s top social media influencers what it takes to be an influencer themselves and best practices for promoting scholarship through social media. The session will incorporate screens alternating between highlighted tweets from panelists and a live feed of the event. The initial 45 minutes of the session will consist of an introduction to the panelists who will introduce themselves with an overview of their contributions to the advancement of the practice of emergency medicine through FOAMed and social media. After the introductions, there will be a question and answer session and panel discussion. The final 30 minutes will be a social session, allowing participants to interact with panelists on a more personal level. During this portion of the session, there will be a live twitter feed of the event. #MGT2020
