Hi everyone! We are looking forward to our workshop tomorrow, Friday May 1st. We have a fantastic line-up of speakers – you can read more about them here.
We also don’t want those who can’t be in Baton Rouge tomorrow to miss out on our workshop talks and discussions. We will be recording the event and be posting the videos of each talk on this website in the coming weeks.
We will also be live-tweeting the event, using the hashtag #VIScoast, from the Twitter handle @SciCommLSU! Manship School undergraduate student Dominique McShan has volunteered to live-tweet this event for us. Dominique is a Mass Communication Senior at Louisiana State University, from Shreveport, Louisiana. He serves as a public affairs intern at the Louisiana Dept. of Transportation and is currently involved in the Public Relations Student Society of America, LSU Black Male Leadership Initiative and Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity. His interests include: technology, new media, social activism, education and social justice. Upon graduation, Dominique plans to continue his education and research the effects of social media on social activism, specifically on college campuses. Look forward to his tweets from our workshop, at the Twitter handle @SciCommLSU!
