All participants

To save time, there will be NO formal PowerPoint presentations. Each speaker is given 5 minutes for an informal talk. To compensate the short speech time, all participants are encouraged to prepare a one-page handout to outline the arguments/expectation/questions about teaching and learning of social media analytics and distribute it to others in the workshop.

The workshop will be available for live streaming. Please follow this instruction to join the workshop:
