Effective online engagement is an increasingly important element of history projects in universities, communities and the heritage sector – and it’s never been more crucial than during this period of lockdown and social distancing. But managing successful online communication and participation will remain a key skill for historians long after this present moment.

This online seminar will drew on the expertise of the β€˜Layers of London’ project, based in the Centre for the History of People, Place and Community at the IHR, and funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, to share their insights, experiences and tips for effective online engagement. It covered topics such as:

  • Identifying and reaching your online audiences
  • Running virtual workshops and webinars
  • Crowdsourced projects online
  • Social media strategy

Twitter moment of the event is now available.
