Training & Resources
Audience: There are more than 100 social media managers across Brandeis University. The social media team is here to build capacity across campus and help match our partners with others who are working on similar initiatives.
Overview: We provide office hours to answer questions and offer guidance to our community. We may meet one-on-one or in small groups of people working on similar projects or who have similar questions. Please meet with us before launching a new social media precence so we can work with you to shine. Email for more information.
Social Media Accessibility
Audience: This class is mandatory for all managers of official social media accounts. Making content as accessible as the platform allows is a requirement.
Overview: Accessible social media content is usable by all people, regardless of physical or developmental abilities or impairments. At Brandeis, we have a responsibility to make sure everything we put online — including videos, photos, graphics and hashtags— is as accessible as possible. In this class, you will learn about our legal obligations, why accessibility is important and how to make various types of social media content accessible.

Social media accessibility training for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester will be scheduled on-demand. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request training. All training will be provided remotely through Zoom.
Once a semester, campus communicators who are responsible for social media meet to discuss our recent successes, challenges and questions as a group. We also delve deeper into one specific area of interest. Do you have a topic that you would like to present on? Let us know!
Previous social media action groups have included presentations on Instagram and social media accessibility.
What else would you like to learn? Please let us know if there are areas of social media that you do not see covered here so we can consider creating training and workshops around it. We also provide content audits, strategize events and campaigns and other support for individual teams.
