This workshop will take place in our new location, First Nations University of Canada, FNUC 3304. The FNUC is located on the University of Regina Main Campus at the North East corner. Parking is available in lot 12M.



Social media is constantly evolving. This workshop will demonstrate ways in which social media can be used as a tool for marketing, building connections, and engaging with the public. This half-day session is for people who want to use social media to reach a larger audience. It’s designed for people who are ready to start using social media but aren’t sure where to begin, and for those who have established a social media presence but aren’t sure how to most effectively use various social media channels. The session includes an overview of the most powerful and popular social media tools, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.
