To create an organisation culture in which change is viewed positively, you need to promote an effective social network and a culture of collaborative working.

The Plymouth University website poses the question “What social network is best for collaborative working?” and starts to answer the question by listing the benefits of using social media sites for teaching and learning:

Benefits of using social media sites for teaching and learning

  • student motivation through bonding with new peers and groups for support, creating a social community – particularly good for part-time, distance or flexible programmes
  • creativity and personalisation
  • gaining professional advantage
  • empowers students to take ownership and responsibility for their own learning
  • alters relationship between staff and students from one way to an ongoing two-way process
  • some students feel more able to express themselves more fully and confidently, enabling concerns, issues and misunderstandings to be noticed when these might be overlooked in other teaching spaces
