Be Visible Online or Vanish!' Using the Internet to Increase Your Research Impact by Dr Lareen Newman
Dr Lareen Newman presented to the Flinders Educational Futures Research Institute on ‘Be Visible Online or Vanish - Using the Internet to Increase your Research Impact'. Lareen considers herself an ‘emerging user' of the Internet and social media for promoting and networking in relation to her research, and only started dabbling in spaces such as LinkedIn, Twitter and Google Scholar in the last 12 months. She talked about her concerns of using these types of spaces as an academic and share her experiences. She explained the wide variety of ways we can increase our research visibility, engagement, dissemination, reputation and impact, and how to keep track of these to add weight to CVs, next promotion or grant application.

Developing and maintaining International Research Collaborations by Professor Antonella Brighi
The Flinders Educational Futures Research Institute in conjunction with the Centre for Student Wellbeing and Prevention of Violence invited visiting Research Fellow Professor Antonella Brighi who presented a session on the subject of:

Antonella is currently the Chief Researcher for the most recent DAPHNE III (European Commission for Justice) project: ‘Turning obstacles into opportunities: investigation and intervention in six European countries' (EU funded project).
The collaborations that Antonella has led include working in teams from six international universities. This provides scope for high quality, inclusive research as well as the challenges that come from working across cultures and distance. Antonella will provide an overview of her own international collaborative research experiences as well as provide in depth knowledge about the challenges within the process. Her experience and expertise will be of benefit to those looking to collaborate internationally and/or join a worldwide research network.
