New Wiki and blog hosting for education and social work researchers: eswphd

Posted on Updated on

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. is shaping up to be a friendly and productive researcher community – do join in.

It also has space to host individual student/faculty & group blogs…. Michelle Lefevre from Social Work has already signed up & we also have a blog page for our monthly ESW Writing Group.

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.
