Health Communication invites all interested employees at the faculty to a free LinkedIn crash course on Wednesday 26 May 2021 between 9:00 - 11:00.

What can you expect to learn?

  • What a good LinkedIn profile contains.
  • How to communicate most effectively on LinkedIn.
  • Which types of content work best.
  • Guidelines about appropriate behaviour on social media.

What do you get out of it?

The course equips you to become (more) active on LinkedIn. It will help you to:

  • Find and add interesting contacts to your network.
  • Draw attention to your work and your workplace among your peers, foundations, (potential) collaborative partners and your network in general.
  • Profile your knowledge and participate in debates within your area or field of work.
  • Become part of an informal LinkedIn network with colleagues from the entire faculty.

What do we expect form you?

We expect you to have already created a profile on LinkedIn. And that you will actively participate in the course, where you will create specific posts together with your colleagues.

It is also important that:

  • Your activity on LinkedIn is voluntary.
  • You communicate in a personal, trustworthy and credible manner about your work, your workplace and the topics that interest you.

Presence on LinkedIn is one of the faculty's areas of focus, but your LinkedIn profile is entirely your own, and we do not interfere in what or how often you post on it. You should primarily participate in the course and be active on LinkedIn for your own sake.

How to register

Register for the course via Health’s staff website (available in Danish only).

The course will be held in Danish and is open to all employees at Health (both academic and technical/administrative staff), and as a general rule it is conducted with physical attendance. If this is not possible due to coronavirus restrictions, all participants will be contacted – and we will meet via Zoom instead.

There are twenty-five places and these are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
