This panel will address strategies for researchers to utilize various platforms to get stories out through “New Media” – the wide range of social and web-based media content sources through which much of the public gets its news and information today. Topics covered will include the importance of a web and social identity; strategizing your new media presence for your intended audiences; and tailoring your content for the appropriate platform. The workshop will highlight examples of academics who are regularly featured on web news sites or with blogs whose posts are frequently shared on curated news sites and social media.

The goal of the Policy 101 Workshop Series is to increase the impact and visibility of UIC scholars’ research. Policy 101 workshops provide UIC faculty and graduate students with focused training that increases their ability to participate in public policy conversations. Policy 101 workshops are taught by professionals and academics who are experts at translating academic research into policy-ready documents, policy presentations and civic engagement and will be offered bi-annually on a rotating basis.
