Amplified events, seminars, conferences What? Why? How?

Tomorrow I will be facilitating a workshop along with Brian Kelly (UKOLN) entitled Amplified events, seminars, conferences What? Why? How? at the JISC Conference 2011. The JISC conference is being held at the BT Convention Centre, Kings Dock, Liverpool Waterfront, Liverpool from 14-15th March 2011.

The workshop will review a variety of approaches which have been taken at a number of national, international and regional events. It will look at the reasons for such approaches, address possible concerns and outline various business models, policies and emerging technologies which can be used to maximise the benefits of amplified events.

I will be concentrating on the How? aspect and talking about some events at which amplification has been carried out. My slides are available from Slideshare and are embedded below.

Other resources from the workshop are available from the UKOLN Web site including a Scribd poster.

Paul Shabajee from ILRT was also meant to be facilitating the workshop with us but unfortunately can’t due to a family bereavement. Paul is now working on the second stage of the Greening Events project.


Amplifying Events in Ariadne

I’ve just had an article published in the latest Ariadne Web Magazine on 10 Cheap and Easy Ways to Amplify Your Event.

The article is a write up of the presentation I gave at a UKOLN seminar back in December.

Next month at the JISC Conference 2011 I will be facilitating a workshop with colleagues Brian Kelly and Paul Shabajee entitled Amplified events, seminars, conference. I’ll be using the workshop as an opportunity to expand on some of the case studies mentioned in the Ariadne article.
