The IAI CPD seminar entitled  Successful use of social media for those in the cultural heritage sector will take place on Friday 17th February at 63 Merrion Square, Dublin 2 . The trainers for the one-day seminar are Damien Shiels (Irish in the American Civil War/ Rubicon Heritage), Niamh Donnellan (Heritage Week Coordinator, Heritage Council) and Siobhan Pierce (Education Officer, Archaeology and Natural History, National Museum of Ireland)


The one day training seminar will tease out several queries that will be of value to people in the cultural heritage sector. The topics addressed  will include, the role of blogging; an outline of the input required to run a successful blog; how you can make social media pay or is it a labour of love?; striking a balance – setting a social etiquette and correct tone for use in the social media engagement; is social media and blogging the new form of publication or is it a more engaging form of publication?; identifying the milestones in communicating in social media; what are the benefits and pitfalls of different social media platforms?; what makes a successful media campaign?.

The formalised presentation will be followed by an afternoon participants guided workshop.
