An effective content curator pays attention to the big picture to watch patterns and trends. He or she also focuses on the small details to satisfy the needs of the audience. Gaining competence in content curation is a Learning and Development skill for the 21st century.
In this podcast, I chat with Robin Good, new media communication expert, and the publisher of MasterNewMedia.org, a web magazine for communication professionals. Based in Rome, Italy, there’s no one better to enrich our understanding of what’s involved in curation. Robin shares expert techniques, best practices and tools for curation, which can be used to replace or supplement courses and a way to help employees keep up-to-date in their fields.
