ECO812 That’s a Wrap! Contextualizing Curated Content

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM Thursday, March 23

Content Strategy


Content curation is all the rage, but what does it mean, really? There are different types of curation strategies that work differently in different organizations. The strategy you adopt affects scoping of your design and development work. It also affects the level of effort required to contextualize it to your learners so that it is relevant and meaningful to them and changes their performance, in their role, in your company.

In this session, you will explore how content curation can become a part of the entire performance improvement picture. You will see how to present content curation as a meaningful part of the learning portfolio, and you will learn the approaches that have worked so you can immediately take them back and apply them in your workplace.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to describe the different types of curated content, internal and external, and how the type of content will drive how you can use it
  • How to apply a simplified model for assessing how curated content fits into your overall learning strategy
  • How to scope the design and development work when using curated content to make it relevant in your organization
  • How to explain research and citation etiquette, legal considerations for using curated content as part of your learning plans
  • How to identify strategies for contextualizing curated content for your organization


Novice to advanced designers, developers, project managers, managers, and directors.

SharePoint and sites with public domain content, including YouTube, SlideShare, Creative Commons, and others.
