This is a course aimed at those already using Twitter and Blogs professionally. I wouldn't describe it as 'Advanced' as such, but certainly 'Improvers' level rather than those just starting out.
Aimed primarily at using these tools in an organisational context (although the advice would be applicable to using them purely as yourself too...), we'll be covering how to use these platforms more effectively (and strategically), how to sustain use over time, how to build an audience and a larger network, what to do with tumblr, how to analyse your own activity, and how to measure the impact of your social media use. It's about increasing the level of engagement your library gets online, in a meaningful way. Participants will also be invited to submit their own specific queries ahead of time so all of your specific issues can be covered!
For the University of Westminster.
I am absolutely delighted to be giving a talk at the NLPN's conference at Madlab in Manchester. I really miss interacting with New Professionals (now it's a full five years since I could legitimately call myself one) and this talk is about things I wish I'd known earlier.
There's loads of other great talks happening too. NLPN are a great group, really looking forward to this whole thing.
