Show Notes

This episode is part of the Learning Uncut Disruption series.  This pop-up daily series aims to equip learning professionals with practical guidance and tips to get started or scale up with practices needed as part of their organisational response to the global COVID-19 pandemic.

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.

Note – This is an abridged version of a longer (45 minute) discussion with Martin. The full version includes a discussion on the use of data to monitor and evaluate curation, plus more detail on other topics in the abridged version.  Link to full version is in the resource list below.
