The training will take place online, using the Zoom platform (free).

You won’t spend all your time listening the tutor - the workshop will be as interactive as we can make it, combining learning with the networking that is always a valuable part of FEU Training workshops. It includes short exercises, as part of the learning process, which will also enable participants to work together.

Learning outcomes

  • You’ll learn how to set up an Instagram account, create/hone your profile, create a post and get some tips on how to get the best from the app.
  • You will create an account and a post during the workshop, but you don’t actually have to share it with the world, if you prefer not to.
  • You will be given tips and tools to help you build on the topics covered during the workshop.
