An update from Denise Turner (Doctoral Researcher, Social Work) on a new Wiki for researchers. Focussed mainly (but not only!) on the fields of social work and education, the site provides access to archived twitter chats from the #eswphd hashtag, and hosts blogs from doctoral researchers and faculty.
eswphd.org.uk is shaping up to be a friendly and productive researcher community – do join in.
You may already be are aware of our weekly ‘Twitter chats’ using the hashtag #eswphd, and we now have a dedicated Webpage/Wiki which carries an archive of these weekly chats (in a nice orderly list – with headings! ) and includes the recent Sussex Library collaboration.
This facility was made possible by a collaboration of people who ‘met’ on Twitter & who have given their skill & time in building this for no financial reward – it is hosted by Jon Bolton’s company ‘Focus on Learning‘ and maintained by Sussex doctoral researcher Liz Thackray. Its a stunning example of group work and the efficacy of community building in social media.
Please do visit the site and see what it has to offer & encourage people to use it – you dont have to be in education or social work.
