Dr. Gabriel Hervas, Project Associate Professor at our Center, has published a new paper at the International Journal for Academic Development entitled “Public relations as part of the work of academic developers: a vignette on our role at a Japanese university” (https://doi.org/10.1080/1360144X.2022.2122474).
The full article is available at https://www.tandfonline.com/eprint/VZYAQ8JVBETABQEDTDSD/full?target=10.1080/1360144X.2022.2122474
The paper responds to a new format launched by the journal (vignettes), and it was selected for a special issue on how we define the roles and the work of academic developers in Higher Education. In the form of a vignette, the paper illustrates how, while at some contexts it can remain imperceptible, doing public relations is an intrinsic part of the work of academic developers in Japan and it has a big impact on their day-to-day work.
