Webinar: Beyond Online Engagement and 140 Characters
Adding new tools to our Technology Tool Kit : How can we use technology to add breadth and depth to our engagement?
- Sharon Matthias, “Pragmatic Provocateur” and moderator, Alberta Land-Use Knowledge Network. Creating an innovative online community conversation and learning experience is one way that Sharon helps government, public and nonprofit organizations in a world of Big Change to “transcend normal by design”. Sharon will share how to create diverse, online communities that engage in conversations that are complex, controversial and full of opportunity.
- Susanna Haas Lyons, M.A., is a public engagement specialist who has worked on some of North America’s largest and most complex citizen engagement projects, including electoral reform in British Columbia, rebuilding post-Hurricane Katrina New Orleans, and the City of Vancouver’s transportation future. Social media and online engagement tools are now essential for successful public participation. The challenge is how to use these emerging tools in ways that are meaningful, accessible, inclusive and productive. In this webinar, Susanna will discuss principles and examples of effective social media for public engagement.
