Description

Digital Dates - Adventures in Vlogging: One Student's
Experiences of Setting up an Academic YouTube Channel



Aim of Session

This session aims to discuss the (somewhat untapped) potential of
vlogging for students and academics at the University of Leeds. Sarah
Mawby, a postgraduate researcher studying towards a PhD in music
psychology, will share her experiences of setting up a YouTube channel
which aims to document what it's like to be a student and disseminate
research findings to a broad audience of viewers and subscribers. Sarah
will talk about her motivations for setting up the channel as well as
the benefits, challenges and pitfalls she has encountered whilst
navigating the relatively uncharted waters of vlogging in academia.
Finally, some tips for getting started with your own channel will be
shared for those interested in starting up their own academic YouTube
channel.
