Sharing the work of the Prospective Student Web Content Team

A place for team news, personal learning reflections, book reviews and conference reflections etc.

The thought of presenting at a conference one day can be very daunting. I have started volunteering at conferences to get better insights, work on my professional development and work towards overcoming this fear.

Our content team members attended – and some even spoke at – the ContentEd conference in November. In this post, we recap what our favourite sessions were and what we took away from the conference.

The team came together on campus during Welcome Week to do some pop-up research with newly arrived students. It was a great way to come together as a team, and for everyone to interact first-hand with the people we’re creating digital services for.

We’ve had a fabulous couple of days at this year’s Content Ed conference, with three members of the team contributing sessions and our user-centred approach winning top prize in this category.

It was great to be able to attend the 2022 SDinGov conference recently. I’ve picked out a few of my highlights from the sessions I attended over the three days and reflected on how they help me understand the work I do.

During a recent project with the Finance team, we learnt about a planned system downtime that would have an impact on the content we were creating. Here’s how we tackled the issue with some carefully placed reusable assets.

When we began a recent project with Finance, we didn’t anticipate just how many different teams would end up involved. In this post, I share the insights we gained into silo culture, and the resolutions we made for next time.

We’re currently recruiting for a senior content designer who will lead our content operations function and play a key role in shaping our future service as we build a new content management system.

During a recent project with the Student Immigration Service, we found that breaking down guidance into numbered steps helped us simplify complex information and improve user experience.

At a recent awayday, I had the opportunity to share some thoughts on services, what that means for how our team does its work and how it might have wider impact.
