In this “Word on the Street” excerpt from Ten with Ken ep9, Ken shares a few examples of the best and worst in higher ed social media from his “Winners & Sinners” keynote at the 2015 PSEWEB conference. Sinners range from Nobel-prize-winning biochemist Tim Hunt and his ill-advised joke about “girls” in the lab (and his botched apology), to Rick Coupland’s violently homophobic Facebook post. In response, though, some winners appeared, like the #DistractinglySexy viral campaign, or the NoHomophobes.com campaign at the University of Alberta.
