We hope you’re having a great summer, and enjoyed the Olympic successes.
We’re trying out a few changes to the RSAFellowship.com online community which we hope will improve your experience with the site. We would appreciate your feedback on these.
The changes are:
1. E-mail notifications of new content
These notifications of new content (eg in any of the 50+ groups you have joined on the site) now include the actual new text rather than just a link - which should make it easier to read in your inbox, and respond immediately if it’s something you’d like to reply to.
2. Re-structure of the RSAFellowship.com homepage
We’ve moved some sections to different locations on the homepage so that any new content (eg new posts in groups) is more visible rather than being pushed down ‘below the fold’ of the webpage.
The colour scheme has also been changed, which should make headings for different sections easier to read. We also moved the over-long 'Welcome' information to a new ‘About this site’ tab.
Do get in touch if you have any comments (or encounter any problems).
Other RSA news
Live-streaming of RSA lectures and other events
From September 2012, every RSA lecture will be available as a live-streamed video - which provides an opportunity to organise Fellow events locally around a live-streamed lecture, as it happens. (You can also tweet in questions to be asked in the room itself, by the Twitter monitor).
The webpage for any specific event that is being live-streamed will include a link to the ‘Watch live’ page: http://www.thersa.org/events/watch-live - which will go live around 30 minutes beforehand.
Please let the Fellowship team know if you plan to organise a live-streamed video event.
‘RSA Connectors’ network worldwide
This year we have been developing a global network of ‘RSA Connectors’, in particular to support Fellow activity in countries without an existing RSA infrastructure.
The list of Connectors (with their photos, interests and inspirations) is here: http://bitly.com/RSAconnectors
If your country is not included, would you like to be considered for the Connector role? (Or is there an RSA Fellow who you think would make a great Connector in a country not yet listed? NB we have Fellows in around 100 countries).
New Fellows’ Tools and Techniques webpage
A page of resources for Fellows (eg how to organise local meetings; RSA projects to get involved in etc.) has recently been created = please find out more at: http://bit.ly/Fellowresources
Do take a look. What do you think? Are there any resources you would really value - that would help you become more active, engaged and effective as a Fellow?
One additional page of advice that is in the pipeline is a guide for new Fellows (this is something that some Fellows have requested during online discussions, and seems like a great idea).
RSA House in September
Keep an eye on the Fellowship newsletter for news of some great events you won’t want to miss in mid-September, when the refurbished House (and Great Room) has its public re-opening.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
