'Amplified events' can enhance face-to-face events by exploiting networked technologies to widen participation to remote participants and 'time-shifting' events. This session will consider the why, what and how of amplifying events – using recent case-studies It will also explore the reasons for such approaches, address possible concerns and outline various business models, policies and emerging technologies which can be used to maximise the benefits of amplified events.

Term coined by Lorcan Dempsey, OCLC (and former UKOLN director) in a blog post on 25 July 2007 9 What is an Amplified Event? 'Amplified events' can enhance face-to-face events by exploiting networked technologies to widen participation to remote participants and 'time-shifting' events.
Online events, hybrid events and amplification of events is only going to get bigger Can share your outputs with a much wider group of people – time shifting Can reuse outputs Better impact, better value Good to get experience and knowledge of technologies Skills in this area helps you avoid paying commercial costs Why Amplify?
Constraints of Space & Time Amplified events can be regarded as a way of avoiding the constraints of space and time! 11
How can we improve our understanding & recollection of events?
Share your experiences of event amplification in your institutional What was successful, what wasn’t? What would have helped you? –What questions did you need the answers to? –What tools did you need? –What services did you require? Group Discussion 1
