Martin Couzins is the editor of LearnPatch, which is a curation platform predominantly for learning professionals. He defines curation as gathering, sensemaking and sharing information for a defined audience and need. He recommends that before you start curating you understand the audience need and preferred channels to receive content. Aspects that he provides tips on include developing reputable feeds of relevant content from credible sources and sensemaking to help people filter and identify relevant content.
