FIR on Higher Education – Episode 3: LinkedIn best practice in a higher education context

FIR Presents Higher Education with Kevin Anselmo

Many of us have benefited from the newly expanded FIR Podcast Network. These perks include enhanced learning and networking amongst the community. This is on display in episode 3 of FIR on Higher Education as Linked Conversations host Chuck Hester is interviewed on how individuals within academia can best leverage LinkedIn.

Chuck, a LinkedIn expert, will outline the rationale behind LinkedIn’s new university pages; how academics can best optimize their profiles to highlight their research and thought leadership; and how public relations professionals can use the social site to communicate news and information about their respective schools.

In our news and tips section, we look at how the Edelman trust barometer impacts higher education stakeholders, and Harry Hawk weighs the pros and cons of the HootSuite.com academic program, which allows college classrooms to use the HootSuite Pro for 90 days and offers a student certification.
