Thirty-one members at Liverpool Catholic Club were the first to experience the new course added to the Pedagogy in the Pub program: Anti-Social Media on 1 June.
The session was run by Organiser Karen Forbes and Professional Officer Amy Cotton.
The title of the course reflects the danger that social media poses to an education professional’s career.
While it’s important that social media be used constructively by students, teachers and schools alike, there are some risks that school employees need to mitigate through responsible use.
The course explores examples of poor online practice by workers but focuses on issues related to the education sector.
A member attending the course said, “This course opened my eyes to the risks of posting online”.
