This afternoon Abhay will lead a focus and planning group for the SMART project with 10 SAS staff, plus the project team, so 15 of us in all. Staff attending represent a broad range of roles and departments, including the Institutes of Advanced Legal Studies, Commonwealth Studies, English Studies, Germanic & Romance Studies, Historical Research, Musical Research, Philosophy and the Study of the Americas, as well as SAS-Central.
We will look at the results of our recent social media survey of staff, fellows and research students and expand on the questions raised there and follow up on key points made by respondents. The session is designed to be as flexible as possible, enabling us to focus on the areas that require further investigation and thought. I hope to be able to begin developing a SAS-Central social media strategy based on the emerging discussions from this afternoon. A big thank you to all staff giving up their time to participate in the group.
