Message du président
 
Dans le cadre de la refonte actuelle de notre site internet, nous avons interrogé des parties prenantes afin de cerner leurs besoins par rapport à ce site.  Nous avons, entre autres, appris que bien des membres de l’ACRSPS voudraient avoir plus de renseignements sur les médias sociaux et voir ceux-ci mieux intégrés au site internet. Suite à ce constat, voici ce que nous avons prévu :
   
1)  Les médias sociaux  seront intégrés au site internet par l’entremise :

  • des fils Twitter en direct de l’ACRSPS et du Groupe de travail des étudiants. Ce groupe de travail s’efforcera de mobiliser la communauté étudiante grâce à Twitter ;
  • d’un lien direct vers la chaîne YouTube de l’ACRSPS ;
  • d’icones faciles à trouver (Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube) pour y accéder d’un seul clique

2)  Nous élaborerons des directives concernant l’utilisation des médias sociaux ainsi qu’une stratégie portant sur les médias sociaux.  
       
3)  Le 5 mars 2013,  l’ISPP-IRSC a présenté un webinaire sur les communications pour les chercheurs en santé publique et des populations susceptible de vous intéresser.  Un enregistrement du webinaire

 est disponible en ligne ; les documents associés à ce webinaire seront disponibles ultérieurement. Ils seront affichés sur notre site internet, conjointement avec d’autres liens pertinents.
      
4)  Le Groupe de travail des étudiants a organisé un atelier pré-conférence sur l’utilisation des médias conventionnels et émergents – Communiquer votre message : un atelier sur les compétences médiatiques. 
 
Outre toutes ces choses, nous nous proposons d’engager un de nos membres étudiants à titre d’expert Twitter, responsable d’afficher des messages sur Twitter au nom de l’ACRSPS sur une base régulière. Nous proposons une période d’essai d’un an dans le cadre de laquelle les « services Twitter » seront échangés contre les frais d’inscription, de déplacement et de séjour à la conférence annuelle et au colloque sur les politiques prévu pour l’automne. Si cette perspective vous intéresse, envoyez-nous un message en expliquant ce que vous contribueriez au projet. Parlez-nous de votre profil Twitter/combien d’adeptes vous avez. Veuillez envoyer votre message à notre coordinatrice des activités de développement internet, Lisa Nguyen, à l’adresse suivante : lisa.nguyen@shaw.ca.
 
De nouveaux renseignements sur le développement du site internet seront communiqués dans le cadre de mon bulletin de juin prochain. Dans l’intervalle, n’oubliez pas de vous inscrire à la conférence annuelle – qui aura lieu le mois prochain (des 28 au 30 mai) à Vancouver.
