Social Media: full-day workshop for LIEM

My annual workshop for Libraries and Information East Midlands is on better social media for libraries. Taking place at Leicester’s Public Library.

You can see detailed info and the application form a little way down on LIEM’s events page. Some feedback from previous versions of this course:

“Fantastic! The hands-on exercises were useful -not only did they help the learning to sink in but they encouraged us to think about real workplace-based ways in which tools could be used. The content was all very relevant because you had investigated what we already do/use. It all felt new and exciting.“

“Pitched at the perfect level, great content, level just right, plenty of time to try out, perfectly paced, engaging speaker, easy to follow presentation”

"Lots of useful information presented in a fun and clear away. I came away with my head buzzing with ideas for things I wanted to do, learn more about, or information I wanted to pass on to colleagues."

"Excellent! Engaging, informative and full of useful hints and tips. Ned is a relaxed and personable presenter who really knows his stuff. A thoroughly enjoyable day from start to finish."

”I really enjoyed the day, opened my eyes to lots of new tools and made me realise that digital marketing doesn’t have to be Facebook”

*New Date Added* Digital Marketing and Online Tools: online training for PiCS [Australia time]

This is part of the online training I'm doing with PiCS in 2017.

Time and date

The training will take place over two sessions a week apart, each lasting two hours.

  • Digital Tools Part 1) July 10th. 3pm - 5pm AEST
  • Digital Tools Part 2) July 14th. 3pm - 5pm AEST

Course Content

This online training covers several useful online tools to help modern libraries communicate. They're all free to use, they all help solve existing problems, and they're all available to use right away (rather than being some kind of 'future trend' which is still a couple of years off...) 

Tools and concepts covered include marketing with video, online publishing platforms, augmented reality, mobile and apps, and geolocational platforms. 

In week one learn whats new, take away and test it out. Come back in week two and share with the group your experience. 

“I’ll be bringing loads of new things back to teach others. I’m bursting with ideas. Great content, all legitimately relevant. Lots of good tips. I agree that everything Ned taught us can be used immediately as opposed to talking about future trends like a lot of presenters do. Super practical!!” PiCS, New Zealand

“The most interesting and enaging webinar I have ever been on. Considering it was 2.5-3 hours long it seemed to fly by. It’s given me lots of inspiration on how we can creatively engage with our users, especially the remote ones” - NHS, Buckinghamshire

”I really enjoyed the day, opened my eyes to lots of new tools and made me realise that digital marketing doesn’t have to be Facebook” - UKeIG, London

“Ned is an expert presenter whom I would recommend to any colleagues with an interest in this topic.” - Academic & Research Libraries Group
— Feedback from previous online and face-to-face versions of this course

Format

These will be interactive online workshops, using GoTo Training software. Delegates will log-in on their PCs, and we'll run the training and provide tech support, plus all the slides and materials and an online booklet with the tasks and instructions in.

As well as hands-on exercises, there will be chances throughout to ask questions and interact with other delegates, just as you'd expect in face-to-face onsite training. All the content and materials are tailored for the online environment and I've got this whole thing down to a fine art, it works well.

We've left a week between the two parts because there will be some ideas to go away and play and things to try out between sessions. In this particular course it'll be all about trying out the tools and emerging technologies we discuss.
