Martin Morrey (from the IS Applications Web Integration Team) and I are both presenting at the upcoming web managers conference – IWMW 2014. We’re running an internal session previewing our presentations on Friday 4 July for colleagues that can’t make the conference.

The UWP are proud to share that we have won another award, bronze sustainability, and also that the University has a new unit – the Department for Social Responsibility and Sustainability.

The University of Edinburgh is a huge institution with a big beast of a website, so as the newest recruit to the University Website Programme team – Editorial Development Officer – I’m still finding my feet in week three.

Rachel Bhandari has recently joined our team. In her role as Editorial Officer she’ll be supporting our work with the Global Academies and the Student Experience Project as well as contributing to our training, support and communication activities.

We got together last week for a couple of hours to look at what and how we communicate. The session was collaborative and fun – led by one of our Editorial Development Officers, Ailsa Wilson.
