Mastering Digital Content Curation

Content CurationThe next workshop starts in London on 13th November. Details on the TFPL website. There are still a few places left if you book soon.

If you’re not too sure what “content curation is all about”, I think this quote from Steve Rosenbaum explains it in a nutshell:

“In a world of bandwidth and content abundance, we’re overwhelmed with data, tweets, blogs, check in’s and media. It used to be we surfed the web. Now the waves of the web are just too big. Curation is the new magic that makes the web work. Bringing the web back to human scale with human filters you trust and love. A powerful mix of passion and context turns noise back into signal.” Source:  5 Tips For Great Content Curation

Effective curation requires technology and tools to find, filter and validate content at the speed of the real-time web. It requires knowledge domain experts who can interpret and add insight to the content they are harvesting. It needs people who can utilise the power of networks and networking to source relevant and reliable information. In short, these are the essential skills of the 21st Century knowledge worker. This workshop will focus on developing these skills.

If you’re still confused about “Content Curation”, here’s a slide deck that might explain.

    This is brilliant. I am working on content related to Interprofessional Education. Rather than assuming that the different disciplines have the time (or interest) in learning about one another, we should be developing ways in which we can “upload” relevant content when needed to increase our understanding and appreciation of each other’s roles as we care for patients. I really like this idea and will be watching your blogs.

    Thanks for the comment Sylvia. I’d be interested in knowing more about what you are doing if you are willing to share. My email is if you’d prefer to continue the conversation there.
