#Digitalfaith: Using Social Media for Professional Development
Manson, Sable A.; Cordovés, Janett I.
Journal of College and Character, v19 n1 p86-92 2018
There is a need to identify and create spaces for professionals in higher education to engage religion, secularism, and spirituality in meaningful ways. #DigitalFaith resources are the digital platforms and communities supporting religious, secular, and spiritual development, and they offer potential avenues for professional development. This article highlights how digital platforms such as Facebook (e.g., NASPA's Spirituality and Religion in Higher Education Knowledge Community Facebook group) and Twitter (e.g., @JCCTweets) are being used to support student affairs administrators' professional development around topics of religion, secularism, and spirituality.
