If you are interested in doing some research on this issue, and looking at an Australian/UK comparison, let me know. Thanks for putting voice to this issue for female academics.

The students in the class would use the tools, blogs primarily, to build two brands: themselves and the school. An artist might blog about his art and the school; an athlete about his team. You get the idea. The students would be both building a portfolio of their own work as well as promoting the school.<br /><br />Another thought I had was for me to write a blog with each post focusing on some different aspect of the school and life at the school. Perhaps I&#39;d visit different after-school activities and observe and blog. Not sure, but I know there&#39;s huge value here, somewhere.Peter A.

I get the feeling from the job announcement that the primary communication will be persistent articles / comms via the school&#39;s hosted presence.<br /><br />Seems to me that the school would be primarily interested in communicating with the familiar audience (parents, kids attached to the school.) With a peripheral, nearly as important, goal of maintaining a progressive visionary appearance for prospective students. Attempting to elicit a &#39;Wow, that&#39;s what I can expect... from a school? Amazing!&#39; in addition to pride, motivation, and a sense of inclusion for the current students.<br /><br />I&#39;d keep in mind that a significant portion of the audience is kids. If you&#39;ve got some writing that engages at that level - bring it to the table.sflowershttp://www.blogger.com/profile/09587081454369718677noreply@blogger.com
