Episode 12: Academic Help Seeking using Twitter in Higher Education

Good episode? Give it some love!
Remote instruction has left many faculty in higher education feeling distressed, frustrated, or overwhelmed. I want to understand how higher education faculty, particularly tenured, full-time faculty in 4-year institutions, use Twitter to seek academic help. In my own observation and interactions, individuals who use Twitter to seek academic support formally and informally recognize the social nature of the network, and the sense of community in which their online interactions are able to help them feel more empowered to complete teaching in digital environments. 

So how can we move higher education faculty from passive help-seekers to active help-seekers using Twitter?
