The annual web content-themed conference for higher education professionals is happening in Manchester this year, from 16 to 17 October. Lauren and I are contributing sessions, and the team are looking forward to a couple of days of learning and networking with colleagues across the sector.
We have concluded that it’s not going to be feasible to release our new service for prospective students as planned next year, due to our dependency on the Web Publishing Platform which is not yet ready to roll out.
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.
In November, our team is going to and presenting at the ContentEd conference hosted in Edinburgh. ContentEd is a 2-day conference designed for people working in content strategy, content design and content marketing in the higher education sector.
We’ve spent the early part of 2022 working on a plan to replace the central University provision for prospective students. A big part of this offering is the degree finders. Join us for a talk about this planning work and what we envisage the next 3 years will bring.
Lauren and I have had our session proposal accepted for this year’s ContentEd conference in November. We’re really looking forward to sharing our experiences at the international higher education conference for content professionals, and we’ve got a discount code to share with Edinburgh colleagues.
We’ll be joining web publishing and marketing colleagues from across the University on Wednesday 27 May from 3pm to talk about our recent work with the Fees Service, and also to share upcoming priorities.
During the early part of December, we ran a series of events to engage with the student recruitment and website management communities. In this post I’ve pulled together slides, video and a write up of what I said.
