Seminar Discussion Topics
Discussion topics for graduate- or professional-level seminars:
- ? What experience have seminar participants had in situations where social media warfare strategies or tactics were used in a campus protest?
- ? What experience have seminar participants had in developing social media guidelines for students or faculty?
- ? What courses on social media have seminar participants taken in the past? What courses on social media do seminar participants plan to take in the future?
Seminar Group Project
Divide participants into multiple groups with each group taking 10—15 minutes to develop a list of social media warfare research topics. Upon completion, have groups exchange their lists of social media warfare research topics, with groups taking 10—15 minutes to review the lists and expand upon them. Meet as a group and discuss what research topics are the most important and should be addressed with the highest priority.
