Social Media BarCamp

On the path to developing a social media strategy, we are organizing an innovation workshop with an unusual format: an "un-conference." But this of course doesn't mean that we haven't prepared a program.

The Freiburg Social Media BarCamp will take place on 26 and 27 October 2012 and is designed to generate an open discussion on the topic parallel to the relevant administrative processes at the university. We expect the interesting mix of people and topics to sharpen our outlook on the future and make it clear that there is a need to take action with regard to social media at the university and beyond.

The results will help the university to develop a proposal for social media guidelines.


The public event brings together members of the university and other educational institutions as well as representatives from the private sector. We will thus provide insight into the university and hope to receive valuable impressions from outside the university.

But a BarCamp is an open event. Feel free to participate and contribute your own ideas on the topic of social media.
