As part of the Social Media Knowledge Exchange programme  UCLDH hosted a one day workshop on our theme, Social Media and the museum. We had a great turn out (despite the sunshine) with much thought provoking discussion. There was a good range of social media practitioners, museum professionals, students and ECRs. One of my co-organisers Claire Ross has a very extensive write up of the event on her blog and so I won’t compete with that here but instead will make the presentation slides available.

The workshop was rounded off with Social Media Challenge; an excellent competition, run by Mark Carnall (Grant Museum), getting us to think about how to respond to those awkward and difficult posts,tweets etc. that result from a social media presence.

Full programme information is on the SMKE website and registration is open for the two day SMKE Conference in Cambridge on 2 & 3 July.
