Vitae runs Digital Researcher event, makes parts available online

Vitae, the UK organisation championing the personal, professional and career development of doctoral researchers and research staff in higher education institutions and research institutes, is running Digital Researcher 2012: an innovative, thought-provoking one day event to help researchers make the most of new technologies and social media tools in their research, in partnership with The British Library.  The day will include discussion of a range of new technologies and tools (microblogging, RSS feeds, social networking and social citation sharing) but the focus will be on how these can be used to enhance research.

Unfortunately, the event itself is already fully booked, but if you get the opportunity, they are also providing access to some of the content online.  These take the form of audio, but you can also follow their event hashtag on Twitter ( #dr12vitae) – and if you have a Twitter account you can take part in the discussions (you don’t need an account to read the discussions).
