Twitter is a social medium that many avoid due to negative publicity and the overwhelming amount of information being shared.This workshop will teach you why Twitter is useful for scientists and how to tweet about science to increase your visibility, help spread scientific literacy, follow the scientific news, and help you connect with other scientists or potential employers. Several exercises will be proposed for you to do in between the sessions, like creating your #PostItNotePhD and #TwitterPoster.


– 1st session – basics of twitter, creation of the professional account, followers as a means to network, keeping up to date with scientific information on twitter using hashtags, use of tweetdeck.

– 2nd session – creation of collections and lists, retweeting and liking on Twitter as a means to share information and bookmark important ideas, practicing tweeting, including using images, links, hashtags, as well as live-tweeting events.


Responsable pédagogique : Milosevic Tamara

Tamara Milosevic has been developing learning-through-research courses for the last 8 years after finishing her Ph.D. in interdisciplinary life sciences. Her main goal is to design the learning experience where students (and life-long learners!) gradually develop research and transversal skills and increase their understanding of life sciences. Two years ago she co-founded Rhizome Association, which promotes the vision of future education for adults, based on active learning, skills development and interdisciplinary projects in science, arts and civic engagement. The goal of Rhizome Association is to develop and implement educational programs and interdisciplinary projects, focusing on sustainable development goals. She is an independent consultant in pedagogical innovation since 2015, and has been teaching at the undergraduate level since 2012, training the higher education staff since 2016, and giving workshops to PhD students since 2018. Since 2018 she is teaching professional development courses at University Paris Diderot, and develops new activities to help students develop crucial professional skills during their studies.
