GUIDELINES FOR STUDENT USE OF SOCIAL MEDIA

Introduction

The internet is a powerful platform for collaboration and community, in your social life and in your professional world. The abundance of social media tools (online services that let you comment, edit, publish, personalise, share and collaborate) gives you many ways to establish conversations, relationships and knowledge, and engage in communities of interest.

As a student in the Faculty of Health Sciences you have personal, academic, professional and legal responsibilities that extend into the social media space. It is important that you consider how you conduct yourself online.

As an emerging health practitioner what you do online matters.
