You heard it here first - eNews is changing!
(4 September 2016)
From next month eNews will be relaunched as a weekly update summary, published every Friday. All the most popular features will remain, including the monthly ‘Message From’ the Dean and other senior members of staff, and the ‘Spotlight On’ section.
There will also be a summary of the key news stories from that week. But to give you more timely access to the news that matters, all the stories you need to know about will be shared on Humnet as quickly as possible, meaning you won’t need to wait for eNews to be published to view the recent news stories, and we will be able to ensure that all appropriate items are shared, rather than limiting ourselves to ‘top’ stories.
The weekly eNews summary will also contain links to all media coverage, rather than a selection of the coverage. There will also be information and links to upcoming events you may be interested in, summarising events that have been added to the HumNet events page.
There will also be some changes to the ‘Spotlight On’ feature so we can focus on keeping you up to date with current topics of interest, as well as finding out more about the people behind the stories, whether that’s an individual or a team. Take a look at this edition’s ‘Spotlight On’ for a preview of the new-look feature.
How you can help
If you have a news story, some media coverage or an event you’d like to share, please continue to send the information to HumsNews@manchester.ac.uk. And remember, the information you send to the Humanities Internal Communications team via this email address may be used not only in eNews and on HumNet, but could also feed into the monthly DoFO CoreMunicate for PSS staff, to the Dean and DoFO CoreMunicate briefings for academic staff, or be used on the external website. We’ll also make sure that it gets passed on to anyone else who might be interested – relevant staff in Schools or elsewhere in the Faculty, or elsewhere in the University. Sharing with HumsNews@manchester.ac.uk will ensure that your work and success stories are promoted across the widest range of channels.
Don’t worry about whether or not it’s suitable, or how it’s written – we will advise on that.
What happens next
The first ‘new look’ eNews will be sent on Friday 7 October, and we will consider all stories received up to the day before.
