Networking: Creating a Credible Personal Impact
Workshop on creating a credible personal impact
We organised a networking workshop for academic staff on 4 September 2019. This workshop focused on increasing personal impact through citations and social media. The workshop largely drew on the personal experiences of the presenter, Professor Graham Kendall.
Apart from the ways how to (legitimately) increase citations when writing papers, the workshop also discussed the citation stacking methods that should not be used.
Moreover, the workshop discussed how social media can be used to create personal impact. Professor Kendall delved into the strategies for using social media to increase citations and subsequently introduced the tools and workflows that he personally used.
We collated feedback from the attendees and here are some of the best learning experiences that they have gained from the workshop:
“One needs to strategise how to use social media to create impact. Random and irregular postings do not help!”
“Understanding h-index and scheduling social media post using free, paid for and self-developed tools.”
We would like to take this opportunity to once again thank Professor Graham Kendall for his valuable sharing of insights and experiences. We hope that the information and guidance shared in the workshop is useful for the continuous development of researchers on campus, in particular early career researchers.
