1. Welcome to the 1st presentation of today’s #HCTwitterConf19 #NoPressure I'm @louoboyle & I'm asking WHY SHOULD I BOTHER? Provoking & reflecting on why #MakingConnections is increasingly crucial to all facets of our practices, thinking & futures within & beyond HE @HumCommons
@humcommons 2. #SetTheScene #WorkLife
To-do lists can seem to get ever longer & the timescales to complete even shorter. Mindful that #Wellbeing #SelfCare are always priority, why spend time engaging with communities like @HumCommons online?

@humcommons @OxfordWords 4. University Ed was founded on humanistic learning. Arts & Humanities teach us how to know, question, discuss & express. Their impt within society (local, global, present & future) seems ever more pressing yet threatened #CallToAction bit.ly/2Y6M8Kl
@humcommons @OxfordWords @MaritaJLVG @Hacquetia @drnsheridan @doctorjen 5. #MakingConnections being connected and connecting does take commitment. But strength & (+)impact can be gained from being part of a community operating in a safe & supportive environment. Helping to sift through – make sense of it all #HCTwitterConf19 @HumCommons
@humcommons @OxfordWords @MaritaJLVG @Hacquetia @drnsheridan @doctorjen 6. Its not only academics that need networks for support @kristineask @wishcrys ‘My life is a mess’ bit.ly/2XQglho discuss how students meme their hardship using humour BUT this is a vital & serious insight into their experiences #CallForAction
@humcommons @OxfordWords @MaritaJLVG @Hacquetia @drnsheridan @doctorjen @kristineask @wishcrys 7. So how do we navigate these multiple, fluid structures and contexts crossing digital, physical and discipline boundaries? How do we communicate/connect in our teaching & research both in/outside of the academy? #HCTwitterConf19

@humcommons @OxfordWords @MaritaJLVG @Hacquetia @drnsheridan @doctorjen @kristineask @wishcrys @jar @Middlebury @PoliticalSpike 9. So #uncertainty is the new normal & as we have seen in various contexts the marginal can/have moved to the mainstream. So what of the Academy’s role within these structures in flux? . . We still need #JohnBerger #WaysOfSeeing bit.ly/2RwtSXK
@humcommons @OxfordWords @MaritaJLVG @Hacquetia @drnsheridan @doctorjen @kristineask @wishcrys @jar @Middlebury @PoliticalSpike 10. One certainty facing us all #ClimateCrisis As #GlobalCitizens it is our responsibility to #ActNow @GlobalGoalsUN

@humcommons @OxfordWords @MaritaJLVG @Hacquetia @drnsheridan @doctorjen @kristineask @wishcrys @jar @Middlebury @PoliticalSpike @GlobalGoalsUN @GretaThunberg 11. Technological advances & #Playbour are continuously
democratising the use of tech/programmes for communication & expression. Embrace the new realities/ethics/practices emerging in these spaces as tools/routes for #MakingConnections #HCTwitterConf19
@humcommons @OxfordWords @MaritaJLVG @Hacquetia @drnsheridan @doctorjen @kristineask @wishcrys @jar @Middlebury @PoliticalSpike @GlobalGoalsUN @GretaThunberg @c_valenzuelab @playbour 12. Inclusive practices & approaches to engaging all with learning & research in/outside of the Academy will become ever more vital in preparing for an unknown future and navigating an uncertain present
