Staff Engagement How I engaged & targeted staff Why I got the response I did My thoughts....
Staff Engagement: How? Targetted emails Blog Articles in E-zines Staff portal Staff survey Flyers Meetings
Staff Engagement: How? Staff Survey 83% said they would use the Image Bank 95% of staff use Powerpoint or similar in their teaching 18% use traditional slides 90% use Google 82% use their own images 63% use online galleries & art libraries 71% want to see staff & student work 71% want to see samples from other existing digital collections 46% feel that copyright is irrelevant when choosing images
Staff Engagement: How? targeted those that said they had archives of student work targeted academics who were advertising their exhibitions approached a number of collections (got on with creating the Image Bank..)
Staff Response: Why? nothing to show? timing? staff not convinced? culture of ownership? fear of disclosure?
My Thoughts focus on acquisition once project is visible incentivise staff clarify the regulations extensibility & ownership of Image Bank collaborate with other departments embed & be seen to embed start small.. Have patience!
