How can an organisation ensure its conference memory lives on? The concept of amplified events is gaining ground in the academic and research communities, as well as in the public sector, and the spread of social media has made new tools available to assist event organisers – and participants – in capturing and sharing events with other participants, colleagues and the wider public.
This is a fast moving and exciting area! To keep up I track – or actively lurk – at events in both the UK and Denmark and write reports on what works. Events tracked range from small seminars to international conferences, plus the odd webinar. I have also tracked a number of Twitter chats.
I’ve led the information side of events in both higher education and the public sector, trying out a range of methods to capture the knowledge and learning shared and help build networks. I’m now also looking at social network analysis and data visualisation approaches. If you would like advice on amplifying and curating an event do get in touch – just add a comment below or contact @annindk on Twitter.
