Chat topics, dates and times for January 2012
We’re excited to start our second month of #AWCchat: a one-hour, weekly online chat on Twitter where we discuss a variety of communications-related topics.
Nope, you do not have to be an AWC member or a woman to participate….
The chat is held weekly, for one hour, 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. CST (Central Standard Time) on Thursdays.
There will usually be a transcript on our Chirpstory channel if you can’t make it.
Here is a helpful post on how to participate in a Twitter chat, by Lisa Barone of Outspoken Media.
Here’s the plan:
Schedule/Topics January 2012
- Thursday, January 5 - How to Kick-Start Your Career as a Pro Speaker
- Thursday, January 12 - Writing for the Web: Why Bullets, Lists and Top 10s Aren’t Crummy “Communications Lite”
- Thursday, January 19 - UPDATE: Patti DeNucci has to wait until February to guest host, but web accessibility expert Glenda Watson Hyatt kindly agreed to step in to show us how online content can (and should!) be accessible for the disabled. Start here to learn about web accessibility and then go here to learn about the Left Thumb Blogger, our new host.
