About this resource

These social media resources were created as the result of a comprehensive literature review, environmental scan, interviews with key internal and external stakeholders, and in discussion with undergraduate students at QUT.

They are not intended to be comprehensive or prescriptive. Rather, it is hoped that they will prompt reflection and encourage students to seek further information or clarification on the many issues (both positive and negative) social media present in day to day life.

A guide for academic staff (PDF, 1.4MB) is available to support academic staff who wish to use these social media modules in their teaching.

We would welcome any feedback or questions you may have about the social media resources.
