Social media is a beast! There is so much trial and error when it comes to emerging tools. Why not reduce the footwork and increase your knowledge! Join us this September in “Social Media & Public Participation” with Susanna Haas Lyons! This online course will cover:
- foundational concepts of digital engagement,
- consider its benefits and risks,
- and explore strategic frameworks for determining which online tools to use.
You will learn the basics of how content gets seen on social media, and have an opportunity to strengthen the impact of your social media posts.
Evaluation should always be useful. “Evaluation & Public Participation” will cover theories and practical strategies to help you evaluate your public participation efforts. In this online course, you will examine the differences between process and impact evaluation, and review the components of a basic evaluation plan. You will craft evaluation questions, identify indicators and consider sources of information to help you answer those questions. Above all, you will learn how to employ evaluative thinking as a learning strategy, in order to strengthen your work and achieve greater impact!
