Advance HE Teaching & Learning Conference 2018: Does social networking work? Lessons from our global community

This presentation will describe a project investigating the transition of international students at the University of Reading focusing particularly on interpersonal dynamics as evidenced in their use of social networking and group work. We will share the lessons learned from our own global community of students about their expectations of and engagement with online social networking during their UK studies and whether they feel this has enhanced their learning – especially in group contexts. Finally we will suggest how a better understanding of the dynamic nature of social networking – by academics and students – might inform teaching and learning practices.
