Event description

Description

Digital technology and collaboration with stakeholders have made volunteering accessible to a wider diversity of the community, provided a greater choice of programs and streamlined administration and management. These programs are helping revolutionise their volunteer programs and collaborate data for community wellbeing. This networking event will inspire you to get more involved in volunteer digital program practices, create new strategies and improve your methods of collaboration.

Our presenters include the prestigious State Library of New South Wales, which is Australia’s oldest library and a preeminent cultural destination and runs a digital volunteering program, and UNSW Medicine, which also runs an innovative and successful program to assist with their medical students online with Simulated Patient Volunteer Program.

Hear insights from representatives from the digital program at the oldest library in Australia, the prestigious and iconic State Library of New South Wales, and UNSW Medicine’s online and offline Simulated Patient Volunteer Program.

Presenters:

Ms Jenna Bain, Digital Projects Leader from the State Library of NSW

The State Library of NSW offers a number of digital volunteering opportunities that allows users to interrogate the Library’s collection and help enrich the cultural heritage of NSW and Australia. As the Library’s Digital Projects Leader, Jenna works on a variety of projects that aim to contribute to and improve the digital excellence of the State Library of NSW. The projects that Jenna manages include anything from creating online experiences for the public to engage with the Library’s collections to developing digital platforms that improve business efficiency for the organisation. With a passion for shared cultural heritage, open-source collaboration and open data, Jenna hopes to make a positive contribution to the preservation of Australian history by facilitating cultural exchange between people and institutions through technology.

Kiran Thwaites, Clinical Skills Co-ordinator, UNSW Medicine

UNSW Medicine is based in Randwick and runs an undergraduate six year medicine degree. Since volunteer recruitment and retention are crucial to the programs’ success, insights into why and how collaborating with the community works to ensure UNSW Medicine’s success will be shared – as well as challenges particularly in the online sphere.

Kiran has been with UNSW Medicine since 2015, having had extensive experience working overseas in local government and advertising roles. Crucial to her career success has been strong communication and co-ordination skills which form the basis for her current role, managing the Faculty’s Volunteer Simulated Patient Programs.

Kiran will be discussing ‘How do you develop a connection with the community and build stronger ties in the process?’ And she will share the story of the successful campus Volunteer Simulation Patient Program for UNSW Medicine and its most recent online version.
