Research and Teaching: Using Twitter in a Nonscience Major Science Class Increases Journal of College Science Teaching
Halpin, Patricia A.
Journal of College Science Teaching, v45 n6 Jul 2016

In this article the authors describe how they used the social media site Twitter to address this problem in a general education course, BSCI 421 Diseases of the 21st Century.
