A social media summer

It hardly gets more exciting than this: Teaching a social media class with American and Iraqi students, who together implement social media projects for non-profit organizations here in Richmond and also develop campaign ideas to be realized in the Middle East. I had the pleasure this summer to guide this Social Media Institute with 47 students together with my VCU colleague Jeff South.

Find summaries of all the lectures and our resources on the class website. Also read the students’ blog posts as well as reports about the program on Richmond.com.

We had a fantastic social media competition at our closing event with the Social Media Club of Richmond. Hopefully, we will receive funding again by AED to run this exciting program next summer.
