Bringing University of Alabama web colleagues together to educate, inform, discuss, innovate, and share
We Are A Community
While web creation 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 online presence. WebTide is a Community of Practice organized by web colleagues at The University of Alabama to help benefit its members and the university by promoting professional development, innovation, and collaboration.
Becoming a member of WebTide means contributing to and benefitting from a wide array of skills, knowledge and experience among other web colleagues. Members have access to all of our communication channels (listserv, Slack, etc.) and receive invitations to all community gatherings which, at a minimum, include a meeting on the third Tuesday of every month where we discuss topics ranging from social media to crisis communication.
The WebTide Coordinating Group
The WebTide coordinating group works to foster avenues for collaborative engagement across the UA campus and within the greater high-ed web professional community. This includes event planning and development of community-initiated projects and initiatives. Current coordinators include:
Jessica Anderson Web Communications Specialist, Strategic Communications
Liaison, Strategic Communications
Meagan Bennett Marketing & Communications Manager, Office of Information Technology
John Hawkins Director of Web Communications, College of Arts and Sciences
WebTide is proud to participate in the UA Communities of Practice forum, an assembly of informal engagement communities, created and organized by campus colleague members, to benefit each other and the University by promoting collaborative professional development, innovation, and education.
