STR102 Getting Practical: How to Build an Organizational Curation Strategy

11:00 AM - 11:45 AM Wednesday, November 16

Expo Hall—Strategic Solutions Stage

“Curation” has reached buzzword status. But while everyone’s talking about it, not everyone is really sure how to do it. What does curation actually mean, and why is it important to your organization? While it’s important to know that curation has the potential to transform your approach to learning, you also need to understand the details of what it takes to make it work.

In this session, you’ll walk through a step-by-step process for building a robust curation strategy. You’ll explore the ins and outs of how to create an effective strategy for your organization, including what questions you need to ask, what tools you need to explore, and how to build a strategy that is detailed enough to create a solid impact but flexible enough to take you into the future. Finally, you’ll look at the broader roles involved in your curation strategy and discuss whether or not it should really be a one-person job at your company.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The basics of how to curate content for learning
  • How to determine your curation objectives
  • About the difference between personal and organizational curation
  • About the difference between collaborative and individual curation

Novice and intermediate designers, managers, directors, and senior leaders (VP, CLO, executive, etc.).
