Demystifying Online-Offline Engagement at NCDD 2012
PlaceSpeak’s Director of Community Engagement, Yuri Artibise will be co-hosting a session at the upcoming 2012 National Conference on Dialogue and Deliberation (NCDD2012) in Seattle on October 12, 2012, from 2-4pm.
Here is the session abstract:
Demystifying Online/Offline Engagement
This session is intended to explore the relationships, tensions and opportunities in the interplay between online and offline strategies for dialogue and civic engagement. Using exercises, case studies and best practices, this interactive workshop and its four experienced guides will seek to demystify online identity and engagement; draw deeper connections with all forms of dialogue and deliberation; and explore some of the high level considerations and trade-offs when assessing when to use online tools. Session participants will leave with not only a better understanding of how off- and online tools can work together, but also some tangible tools to help them begin integrating theses approaches in their deliberative practices.
