19th May 9.30am – 12.30pm - UTS Building 10, 235 Jones Street, Broadway.
This workshop will focus on the possible uses and application of blogs in a number of different contexts.
Participants will be introduced to weblogs and aggregation (RSS and atom) and invited to explore together the communication and information dynamics which distinguish the medium and technology from other forms of online communication (such as discussion boards, wikis and online learning environments).
Following this, participants will be invited to explore and discuss possibilities for the use of weblogs in their individual and organisational contexts.
The workshop will cater for both new and experienced weblog practitioners and will be ideal preparation for any conference participant looking to frame and consider the possibilities of weblogs for themselves and their organisation.
