WRK4 Workshops Track

Galleria North

SUNDAY, 1:00 - 4:30 PM

This workshop is currently full.

In higher ed, we face huge challenges wrangling web content-deploying a wide range of communications to multiple audiences amid ever-shifting priorities, technologies and politics. How can we not only get it done, but get it done in a way that is engaging, effective and sustainable? Content strategy provides a framework for addressing these challenges. But whether you’re part of a large web team or a one-person-band wearing all the web hats, it’s easy to feel like content strategy is out of reach. It can appear abstract, confusing and hard-to-start. Let us break it down for you and get you on track to develop a sustainable content strategy that meets the unique needs of your institution and its web users. By coupling straightforward explanations with hands-on exercises, you will learn how content audits, editorial calendars, style guides, measurement plans, content governance plans and other content strategy processes and deliverables can help bring sanity to your web content creation and planning. We will also discuss the power of relationships and community building in ensuring the ongoing success of your content efforts.
