I’m teaching research methods this summer and writing (or trying to write) a paper about incorporating social media into a research methods class. Any literature about social media assignments would be helpful as well.

Ideas from other professors are here (I’m looking for more links to add):

Assorted ideas from Kaye Sweetser

Social media press release from Tom Kelleher

Issue tracking with Twitter from Tom Kelleher

The tab at the top of the page called “Research Assignments” is where you can go to access the project descriptions.

Check out student blogs listed in the blogroll (Becky’s is a good example–go to the tab for PR Research Reports) to see what the final projects looked like.
