Remit and Activity

The #RSAde Group's priority objective is to ensure that FRSA communications (including networking and collaboration) are maximised through digital and social media. As part of its remit, the group tests and develops tools, techniques and incentives to enable Fellows and Staff to engage effectively online. A Fellowship Council Working Group but all Fellows are welcome to join and contribute to this Network.

This group is now closed - as the Digital Engagement group was migrated over to an overall Communications Working Group. So it may well be worth setting up a new group for that. However with the new platform being launched later this year, it may well be worth waiting till that's launched and the new fellowship council elected.

An update for you all. The digital engagement group was absorbed into the newly formed Communications Working group of the Fellowship Council back in February this year.

This group is now probably best to close and perhaps a digital champions one should be set up? Matthew Mezey is the main point of content for all things to do with Digital Champions. 

When the new platform goes live later this year, I think the plan will be to close the Nings and migrate the groups over to the new platform. Matthew would be able to advise on that.

It may well be worth setting up a group for the Comms Working group, but I'll leave that for the next fellowship council which will be elected in October this year.

I have recently been working on 10 principles to help organisations make the most of digital.

Today I recorded a webinar going through them all, and I've embedded it below. Also, attached to this message, is a PDF of the slides.

I hope it is useful!

The kickstarter campaign for Pandora's Locker is LIVE! This creative production is a youth opera mixing biomedical science and gender through a contemporary resetting of a Greek myth.

Please support if you can in two ways: 1) share this through word of mouth, social media, email, etc 2) donate if you can. THANK YOU!

Just posted a forum topic on why I suggest we move development discussions from this site across to Linkedin, and do any public engagement through social networks and blogs.

Lively discussion on the Linkedin discussion about Fellowship of our tech platform needs. Can anyone from the core DE group update one where things are with the tech board scoping?

Comment by David Wilcox on January 17, 2013 at 8:30

Is anyone here interested in helping me, John Oakley and Paul Nash work with Matthew Mezey to lead and facilitate discussion in the 2300-strong RSA Linkedin group? It is proving a lot easier to engage Fellows there. For example, 26 of us developed 150 comments in a discussion about RSA mission that yielded a document that became part of the Board awayday discussion yesterday. (open doc)

We are currently talking about our vision for the future of the Fellowship, with some really positive ideas including a communication and innovation hub for Fellowship. 

It's an experiment in how Fellows can help digitally at national as well as regional level.

Either way, I hope you'll join the discussion (login needed)

I've just posted an item about issues for today's technology board, where I believe there will be discussion of a new Fellowship comms platform.

My concerns: should there be one platform for staff and Fellows rather than several; we need a comms plan before a tech plan; interim arrangements need more thought.

RSA Events

Mind Change

Leading neuroscientist Susan Greenfield considers the vast range of technologies that are creating a new environment around us, and asks: how can we ensure these powerful forces bring out the best in us, and allow us to lead more meaningful, more creative lives?

Inequality and the 1%

Leading social geographer Danny Dorling unpacks the latest research into how the lives and ideas of the 1 percent impact the remaining 99%.

Political Order and Political Decay

Influential political scientist Francis Fukuyama tells the story of mankind’s emergence as a political animal, the development of state, law and democracy, and explores the modern landscape - with its uneasy tension between dictatorships and liberal democracies – arguing that in the US, and in other developed democracies, unmistakable signs of decay have emerged.
