✔ Identify risks in professional and personal practice.
✔ Understand the application of social media in social & business contexts.
✔ Identify key statutory and non-statutory influences.
✔ Help participants to develop their own ‘Appropriate Use of Social Media Policy.’
Many organisations misunderstand or confuse a digital media strategy with an appropriate use of social media policy, but they are very different things.
The two day course is designed to provide attendees with an understanding of the dangers they face by misusing their personal social media in a way that conflicts with professional standards, roles and responsibilities.
We use REAL case studies to show the consequences.
We also reflect the fact that disciplinary cases brought by organisations that had no policy and/or made no effort to inform staff of their expectations are generally those that fail.
The final day includes workshops aimed towards building a policy appropriate for the organisational needs using attendee knowledge. Each class is limited to no more than 9 students.
