Academic Communications

As well as Academic Essentials and associated pages within, there are many ways in which we communicate academic matters to the wider community: 

For all academic staff

Academic Development & Diversity Team (ADD) website

  • Blog Post – delivered to subscribers of the site
  • Twitter – visit @SHU_AcDev

Role specific

Here we produce communications via the website Blog Posts (delivered to subscribers of the site) and role specific email groups;

Community specific

We produce communications via group emails and/or subscribers to the websites along with Blog Posts that are linked to the work of our community groups;
  • Inclusive Practice – supporting the work of The Community of Inclusive Practice (a Hallam Guild Group)
  • Hallam Guild – cultivates inclusive staff and student communities of practice across Hallam and acts as an incubator for the development of innovative practices in teaching, learning and supporting the student experience
  • Narrowing the Gaps – designed to help you to understand more about the degree awarding gap, also called the degree attainment gap, between white and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BME students), the causes of the gap, and what can be done to reduce and then eradicate the gap.

University-wide channels

The Recruitment, Communications and Marketing Team can work with you to provide strategic communications direction and planning. They create and manage key messages and delivery through central channels for major projects and campaigns. Their Internal Communications Toolkit provides you with practical resources to get you started and here you can make contact with the team.

Here’s an overview of all the central communications channels the team use to circulate messages to both staff and students including College newsletters, as below;
