Innovations in digital, information, and computation fields are generating new conservation communication forms and modes of research/teaching, widening collaborative conservation communities, and expanding practitioners' "publics". Addressing a shared need among conservation and wildlife practitioners, the activities in this course explore the evolving range of digital media platforms, enrich participants' understanding of digital tools' potential, and consider best practices/ethics of multimedia publishing. Through two conservation case studies, participants will explore social media and research collaboration tools, and consider how these digital developments may affect publishing and scholarly communication. Tools surveyed will include photo and document sharing, social media, and interactive presentation. We’ll also review ways to integrate literature reviews and current awareness for keeping up with new publications.
