Notes from meeting Wednesday 23rd November 2016

Using the master plan drawn up by Lewis, we focused on the following areas:
Social Media Assistant possibly intern from June to November/December 2017 to
effect smooth transition and merger. Then to be reviewed (intern/jobs4student).
When appropriate add details to the Contact section and to the overview in the A&H
staff section - added to A&H Staff & Content pages
Postgraduates (profiles). expand this to include HLSS and Fashion Institute PGRs.
Add in the links to/from the PGR Buddy Scheme site - added to Researcher

From September 2017 it will be a A&H faculty requirement for RD1 that all new
starters register their profile.
2nd and 3rd year PGRs will be strongly encouraged to register their profiles. add this
to Postgraduate Profiles
Facebook Groups. There are currently 3 groups. Current situation:
HLSS closed group. PGRs and PGTs. Administration by Social Media
Assistant. Mainly to promote events and activities, reminders of university
policies, photos and posts from events, congratulations, notices of
conferments/achievements. Its mainly one way communication but with
comments monitored and responded to.
HLSS International closed group. Used for peer mentor scheme from June to
October to encourage international PGs to make firm their offers. Once done,
they are invited to join the HLSS closed group
John Hyatt Learning Laboratory. Student led, forum for discussion.
Make the current HLSS closed group into an open one for all enrolled PGTs
and PGRs and broadly continue the external theme: calls for papers,
promotion of external events, some broader, relevant university activities,
tempered with quotation of the day, special series such as My Desk to
encourage engagement with PGTs and PGRs
Continue in the summer with the International closed group as before but
extend to all A&H PGRs
Set up a new closed group to replace the JHLL group, encouraging existing
members to migrate; 3 staff moderators in the background, encourage PGR
and PGT discussion.

going in Talks/Lectures archive? Or Research resources - explained in Latest Online
Media on Home page. In order to expand to include the range in the new faculty a
