Increase your impact and engagement using social and popular media channels

Increasingly academics are asked to frame their work in terms of impact and engagement, and to show how we inform, educate and engage with our community. Environmental Yet finding readers and audiences beyond the academy can be mystifying.

Environmental Change STA presents a practical conversation with Elizabeth Leane and Hanne Nielsen. This conversation will offer personal insights and practical tips to demystify pitching, hashtags, altmetrics, and more, to help you increase engagement and impact.

  • What channels can you use to engage with audiences beyond UTAS and the academy?
  • How can you use popular and social media to find readers and networks, and communicate your achievements, at different stages of your academic career?
  • What makes a pitch exciting to popular publications?
  • How can we best use Twitter to engage with #envhums?

Elizabeth Leane is an Assoc Prof. of English and ARC Future Fellow. She is co-director with Dr Yvette Watt of the Multidisciplinary Environment Research Group.

Hanne Nielsen is a PhD candidate in the School of Humanities, and President of the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists.
