Social Media in Higher Education Summit

Tuesday, June 9, 2009
1:00 pm - 3:00 PM (Eastern)

Originating from the 2009 Penn State Web Conference

HashTag #smsummit

Come join me at this virtual summit as we explore the challenges and opportunities of social media in higher education. The format will be much different than a typical workshop. Following the principles of an unconference, we will leverage the wisdom of the crowd in an open environment where everyone's participation is encouraged.

In addition to those attending in person we will be using Adobe Connect to stream the event live and allow our virtual attendees to participate in the proceedings. The URL for the summit is

Update, June 8: You will need to create a "Friends of Penn State Account" to participate. A link and instructions are available at

We will will be utilizing social media to create a backchannel to let people from across the globe participate virtually. For those of you who want to participate on Twitter, delicious, Flickr, etc., the hashtag for the event is #smsummit

I have added an instance for the Social Media Summit at the Harvard’s Live Question Tool:

Please submit your questions and vote and reply to existing questions. I plan on using the information gathered to drive our live discussion on June 9.

For those of you in Florida and working in schools with Health Programs: There will be a Social Marketing in Public Health conference.

The contribution by @bluefuego was outstanding, as was the discussion following, but due to technical difficulties the audio was very intermittent for remote participants. I'll look forward to any PowerPoint et. al. documents from the meeting! If anyone would share their notes taken from the conversations, that would be wonderful!

We did record the summit and it should be available in the next day or two. I'll post an announcement when it's available.

Is there a way to view what occurred now?

Cheri -

Yes. All you will need to do to participate is visit on June 9 at 1:00 P.M. You will not need a web cam or phone line. You will be able to participate directly on the site.

Let me know if you have any other questions and I look forward to "seeing" you next Tuesday.
