A report by Kirsty Pitkin is in preparation on this year's Institutional Web Management Workshop (IWMW) which took place the University of Edinburgh's Appleton Tower over 18 - 20 July 2012. The Workshop's theme this year focussed on embedding innovation, and the event featured a range of case studies and examples of embedded practice. Fittingly, the workshop saw the formal launch of the new JISC-funded Event Amplification Toolkit which seeks to embed some of the experimental practices explored at IWMW events in the past to bring the workshop to a wider audience beyond its traditional geographical and temporal constraints.  

Kirsty Pitkin is a professional event amplifier who works closely with conference organisers to help extend the impact of their events using online media. She received an MA in Creative Writing and New Media from DeMontfort University, which stimulated her ongoing interest in communicating stories across a variety of social media and digital platforms.
