In order to better understand how we can work with staff across the college to promote the great research and events taking place I have created a short Qualtrics survey. We’re looking to not only increase awareness of what we do for the college and what support we can provide to academics and research groups, but also to see what areas we can include on the website as a general help tool. The results of this survey will help us to support the college better with it’s digital promotion. The survey is anonymous and should only take a couple of minutes to fill out and can be found at this link: https://unioflincoln.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_erm3rYQF77HriSx
Your help in providing feedback on this is greatly appreciated.
In the meantime if you have any other questions regarding social media, blogs, corporate website updates, photography, and video please contact myself or my colleague Amy Gillard, or look through this which includes an FAQ, help guides and quick start videos on a number of topics.
As the University’s corporate website has been updated, staff are being reminded to update their profile pictures on the staff directory so that they are up-to-date, and higher quality image files.
If you are a member of staff in the College of Social Science and require a professional photo for your staff profile or to accompany any material you are developing, please remember that this is a service that we in the Online Media Team can help you with.
You can either contact myself (email@example.com) or Amy Gillard (firstname.lastname@example.org) to arrange a convenient time.

The University environment is one where there is a diverse range of people from different nationalities and backgrounds and as such, it is understandable that some staff could feel wary of cultural differences and the possibility of causing offence.
The ‘Cross Cultural Communications’ training session is a bite size session that aims to raise awareness of cultural differences in attitudes and behaviours which you may come across in day to day social interactions. The session will offer an insight into cultural differences and social norms, including British culture and suggest reading material to further increase knowledge. The course is available to all staff with the next available session taking place in the Minerva Building on the Brayford Pool campus on Wednesday 28th February.
