Gilgun to discuss disseminating research on the Internet

Jane GilgunSchool of Social Work Professor Jane Gilgun will discuss how she uses the Internet to disseminate her research to the general public.

Although Dr. Gilgun places a high value on publication in refereed journals and believes such publishing is essential to social work's mission, she also believes that the general public is an important force for change to which social work is committed. She therefore publishes articles and produces videos for the general public and makes them available on the Internet. She will present her efforts to reach the general public--and an international audience--using Amazon Kindle,, and YouTube.

Her talk, part of the School of Social Work's Research in Progress series, will be Wednesday, November 17, from noon-1 p.m., in Peters Hall, Room 280. If you have questions, please contact Professor Jeff Edleson, (612) 624-8795.
