Thing 9 PS

I’ve been reading one of this week’s extra 23Things posts, about Elizabeth Eva Leach’s recent presentation on ‘Blogging and Twitter for Academics.’ This was one of the events in OUCS’ Social Media Michaelmas programme that I was very interested in but knew I wouldn’t get to in person. Hurra for a digital afterlife! Her handily linked slides are full of good reading, especially but not exclusively for academics who teach. My favourite was her definition of ‘the perfect research library‘, particularly the description of the chairs. St Cross definitely needs new readers’ chairs and desk lamps – yes, we’ve only been open a year, but we didn’t have new furniture or lamps then! It may be time for a ‘consulting the collective consciousness’ tweet on this topic…
