Workshops and seminars

On Tuesday evenings between 6 and 8pm we meet in The Common Room (A cafe and computer suite on the corner of Bath and George St Dunedin CBD) where beginner and experienced alike come together to share know-how and discover new things about social media.

To start the evening we meet in the cafe and talk about things we'd like to know more about. When we have 2 or 3 things to look at, we move to the computers and follow along as someone demonstrates on a projector.

The beginners really appreciate the pace in these demonstrations, and the experts follow along while updating their twitter and blogs, and taking a new thing further. There is always something new to try and discuss.

If you would like to organise a workshop or have someone explain the opportunities of social media to you and your organisation, feel free to call Leigh on +64(0)21736539 or email

I had my first go at teaching social media to the homestay parents last Friday night. It was a sushi making contest for the students and homestay parents and so I took the opportunity to take them all into the computer room and show them the blog. I also gave a shout to this social media class and have also sent the link out to them. Hopefully, parents will see that in order to know what their student is up to then they need to communicate on-line. I think it's a learning curve, but the benefits are worth it.
Cheers and good luck with the course tonight.
