There are still places available on this workshop.

On Saturday 5 November we are holding a one day workshop to provide a practical introduction to using so-called web 2.0 social media, such as blogs (Wordpress, Blogger, Tumblr and Posterous), Flickr, Facebook and Twitter, to publicise and promote the work of archaeology groups and/or projects to the wider public.

The workshop will consist of a variety of short explanatory sessions on some of the most popular social media tools available, case studies on how they are being used by archaeology groups, and supported hands-on time for you to take your first steps in using social media.

We expect that attendees will have some knowledge of using computers including browsing the Web and sending/receiving email. There will be a number of laptops available but you are welcome to bring your own if you prefer. Wireless connection to the Internet will be available.

The number of attendees will be limited to 20; priority will be given to CBA Yorkshire members (groups and individuals, including those with membership via national CBA). Should more wish to book we will consider an additional workshop.

In 2012 we plan to run a further workshop on developing video content for the web, to include use of YouTube and similar social media sites.

The cost of the workshop is £20.00 and will include tea and coffee. Lunch is not included.

To book a place please return the a completed booking form (attached below) with a cheque for £20 made payable to 'CBA Yorkshire'.
