The Broadening the Curriculum module ‘Social Media for Social Good’ gives undergraduate students from diverse disciplines the opportunity to work together in groups on questions of social responsibility and ethical practice using social media techniques. Students undertaking this module develop social media strategies for organisations, such as the Corbett Suicide Prevention Patrol, Mid-West Spina Bifida, the Blue Box Creative Learning Centre, the new Student Volunteer initiative, and Clare’s Wish Foundation, which are then presented at the recent 'Social Media for Social Good' story fair. Visitors to the Story Fair are asked to vote on the most innovative and useful work on show using their phones or tablets.

Congratulations to all winners and participants.
