Well, it’s official. The 10Weeks to a Web2.0 You Social Media Training Program kicks off today. Right now, this is just for library staff, but we are collecting up all of the training tools, presentations, etc. to create a website which anyone can use. I’m co-teaching blogging and then image editing (the fun stuff, right?) I thought about switching out blogging for moviemaking, too, but geez, I have enough going on, you know? 😉 For those of you attending the kickoff, there is food!
Join S.T.E.P. and WAG for the launch party of a new training series:
10 WEEKS TO A 2.0 YOU: SOCIAL MEDIA AND WEB 2.0 SKILLS TRAINING COURSE
On Wednesday, April 7, at 3:00 in the Administration conference room,
you can enjoy refreshments, get an overview of the program, and meet the instructors.
You’ve heard about Web 2.0 – you may even be using some of these applications in your personal computing time. But do you know…
…how to use Web 2.0 applications to increase your productivity and efficiency at work?
…how the UGA Libraries are already using some of this technology and you can get involved?
It is becoming increasingly important to know how to use these applications effectively and creatively in the work environment. To help you become more proficient, WAG and S.T.E.P. are offering a 10-session course about several of the most prominent uses of Web 2.0.
You can come to as many or as few of the sessions as you wish. However, participants who complete eight of the ten workshops will receive a certificate of completion of the program and will be entered in a prize drawing.
The sessions by week, are:
