Call for Speakers for Social Media 101 Workshop

Online Collaborative at AUB will be giving a workshop entitled "Social Media 101" to help beginners at AUB get started and integrated with the online community. Ideally, the workshop will take place on a span of 8 weeks on Tuesday nights (6.30-8.30 PM) starting March 15. We are looking for volunteer guest speakers who can choose up to two topics (one hour each) to discuss.

All speakers are required to have an acceptable level of English proficiency (since the workshop will be conducted in English) and appropriate experience in the topic they choose to discuss. They are also required to create powerpoint slides and/or other relevant presentation media for their presentations. and they should allow AUBOC to post these materials on moodle (an online teaching tool) for the participants to access.

The workshop will end with an online final examination and/or a final project, and certificates will be distributed to the participants. Participant fees for this course will be very minimal (Online Collaborative is mainly a non-profit organization) and will cover only the workshops costs ans the costs of a mini-gala/tweetup celebration at the end of the workshop.

If you would like to participate as a guest speaker, please inform us as soon as possible by sending an e-mail to It is a chance to give back to the community and enlighten a new generation of students who would like to be integrated with the Lebanese online community. Also, feel free to circulate this announcement to friends and colleagues who might be interested in participating as guest speakers.
