Event Details

The flow of information in a group or organization can overwhelm the best of us; it can clutter a cause, muddle a mind, and waste endless amounts of time. This workshop will explore how to manage key information hubs like email, online information sources, and digital and hard copy documents. You will be able to establish a system for information that flows in and out in a usable and retrievable way that prevents the loss of information, reduces redundancy, considers all stakeholders, and nurtures self-care. We will also discuss a few popular cloud services, including their policies and other considerations.

 

In the introduction, we will establish terms that we will use throughout this session

 


 

Part 1, we will consider the flow information in and out. This includes how we receive information, various media, how to evaluate useful information, how to manage it, and how to store it in a usable way. Specifically, we will discuss the difference between information in email, social media, and instant messages, and how to control information within each platform.

 


 

Part 2, we will discuss internal information systems. This refers to the flow of information between departments or colleagues, or if you are on your own, how to manage each area. We will learn about information spaces and mental models, how to avoid design flaws and ensure the flow is both usable and useful.

 


 

Part 3, we will discuss storage solutions. We will look at some popular cloud services, review main points in their terms of use and privacy policies that are noteworthy, and the share-ability of each service and your reporting responsibilities, if you have any.

 

Date: Thursday Nov. 16
Time: 6:30-8:30 PM (2 hrs)
Location: University of Toronto (exact room TBC)
Accessibility: We will gather in a barrier free space. Subway tokens available to attendees by request. Please write to Laura@Toolsforchange.net if you have specific requirements. 

Trainer: Tiffany Nyklickova is a Project Specialist for Services in Action, an information centre for nonprofits. She builds partnerships between organizations so they can exchange information, services, and tools. Tiffany’s work experience has gone from for profit corporations, to charities, non-profit grassroots initiatives, and social enterprises. In the end, it’s taking a project from an idea to a fully developed system that she enjoys most. While doing this, she found herself immersed in knowledge management and information technology. Her geeky pleasures are organizing and creating excel documents. Outside of work Tiffany’s passion is travelling. The next destination is always being planned.
