Andrew Richardson, Director of Advancement and Alumni Relations in the College of Community Health Sciences, will discuss the role of web in higher education, the problems and successes we run into on a daily basis, and how web professionals fit into the larger picture.
While web design and development at the University of Alabama is carried out by many different people from numerous departments, we all share similar challenges, opportunities, and a goal of representing, and promoting, the University with a high quality web presence.
So let’s share our knowledge and resources! That’s where UA WebTide steps in. It used to be a web development blog but now it is being transformed into a true web professionals community, one that meets the third Thursday of every month at 12 p.m., to focus on, and discuss, topics ranging from social media to crisis communication.
WebTide is a community of web professionals at the University of Alabama which exists to help benefit its members, and the university, by promoting professional development, innovation, and discussion. WebTide is not a governing body or committee.
When session lunches have been sponsored, it means food will be provided. We will try to let you know what is being provided ahead of time. You are also free to bring your lunch with you.
