|CPR ONLINE COURSE: Digital Discipleship 1.0 - Social Media for Ministry||
|From Thursday, May 24, 2012|
To Thursday, June 28, 2012
“Digital Discipleship 1.0” is designed to equip and empower students in the basics of using social media as part of their overall approach to ministry, focusing on philosophy, strategies, tools, and generative questions at the intersection of social media and narrative. In 1.0 participants will explore questions of why and how social media is a vital tool of ministry and then move into live, practical "how-to" tutorials for using Facebook, Twitter and Blogging in ministry.
The class will have an initial meeting on May 24th at 12pm EST using GoToMeeting at which time we will discuss the best day and time to have weekly online meetings. After the first meeting the class will meet each week for one hour using GoToMeeting to cover new material and discuss questions about material and projects assigned. We will hold asynchronous conversations at our Facebook Group 'Socially Networked Ministry - CPR (you will be added to the group once you've "friended" the instructor, Kimberly Knight). Participants are responsible for checking and interacting with the Group each week. This Group is a closed Group.
Each week there will be reading assignments on which participants will post a short reflection in the Facebook group, on their own blog and Tweet about. Projects will include: creating an active Facebook Page, creating an active Facebook Group, creating a blog in Wordpress, and creating one email campaign using an online email campaign tool.

Cost: $249.00 per person; $499 per group of 3 or more.
