I am requesting expressions of interest for a hands-on workshop about social media for librarians with DK, to be scheduled in late February and early March 2013.
The course can only run in locations where there has been enough interest to ensure that we meet our break even number of 15, which is also the maximum number of participants for the workshop.
If you reside outside the main centres and would like to see the workshop run in your area, use your professional networks to gather participant numbers and email me. We will always endeavour to bring an event to a location that meets the break even number.
Expressions of interest will close on Friday 25 January 2013
SOCIAL MEDIA FOR LIBRARIANS
DK is a social media guru with an international reputation. He was a very popular keynote speaker at the 2012 LIANZA conference, where he also held a short social media workshop. His popularity was such that I had a number of requests to ask him to do more workshops for LIANZA. DK is moving away from presenting face-to-face workshops, so this will be your only chance to benefit from his experience and enthusiasm.
The workshop will be hands-on, immersive and inspirational with a focus on raising confidence/competence around using social media for the benefit of your library and your own professional development.
Limited to 15 people to ensure everyone gets the time and attention to play/learn.
Attendees will leave with:
a deeper understanding of social media
confidence to use several dynamic platforms
strategies for professional development using these spaces
ideas for colleagues and use of digital and social technologies in their libraries
concepts of user engagement for their services
Late February/early March 2013
Welcome tea/coffee at 9am for a workshop start at 9.30am, finish 4.30pm.
Catering includes a welcome tea/coffee, morning and afternoon tea and lunch.
$273.70 (LIANZA member), $391 (non-member)
PubSIG will sponsor four of their members to attend events at half the LIANZA member cost - $136.85 (PubSIG member discounted rate).
The discounted PubSIG member rate will be given to the first four PubSIG members to register for each event.
MAXIMUM NUMBER: 15
BREAKEVEN NUMBER: 15
If you are Professionally Registered, you can record this learning under BoKs 2, 3 and 4.
