A Tweetchat to support Staff Learning and Development professionals.


The SDF is exploring ways of learning and communicating that do not rely only on email. We are running a series of Tweetchat online conversations to support the SDF members with regular conversations on a topic of interest.


What is a Tweetchat?

  • A Tweetchat or Twitter chat is an organised online discussion about a topic. The discussion usually occurs on a weekly basis at the same day and time. Tweetchats normally last about an hour.
  • A typical format consists of a question-and-answer session. The number of questions may vary between one and nine. Tweetchats are moderated and, sometimes, there may be a guest in addition to the moderator.
  • Tweetchats have been used in the field of Education, Business and others sectors, in order to stimulate discussion amongst like-minded professionals, who are passionate about a topic. The discussion is associated with a specific hashtag.

We aim to run the SDF Tweetchats on the first Friday of the month from 12 to 1 pm. Full details of how to follow and contribute to the converasations can be found on SDF Tweetchat Launch. News of the topics for upcoming conversations will be notified in our News/Events priot ro each session.
