Start your social media portfolios for academic promotions

Yes, the Mayo Clinic Academic Appointments & Promotions Committee considers social media scholarship as criteria for promotion and published a blueprint for the rest of us.

Cabrera and Mayo colleagues (2017) explain in, More than Likes and Tweets: Creating Social Media Portfolios for Academic Promotion and Tenure, how to quantify social media scholarship.

Here are 5 ways that academicians (& students) can use the Health Communication Hub as a 'virtual collaboratory' - to prepare for promotion - following the Mayo Committee authors' Impact Grid for assessing scholarship.
