Mailbase Guidance – SDF@jiscmail.ac.uk
How to Join our list
You can join the SDF JISC list here.
** Please note that once you have added yourself to the list you are free to send an email containing your question, comment, request, position available, CPD or other event – or whatever – to SDF@jiscmail.ac.uk, and any message that you send will be circulated to the ALL the members of the list (currently in excess of 300).**
An electronic discussion list is a group of people who share a common interest, and who have joined a list so that they can use email to talk to one another. Belonging to a list is like sitting in on a discussion. You can join in the talk, or you can just listen.
JISCmail is a service that currently runs electronic discussion lists for UK academics and support staff. SDF@jiscmail.ac.uk is the list set up by the Staff Development Forum for discussions on any aspect of staff development, broadly interpreted.
Please note that JISCmail lists must not be used for unsolicited commercial advertising.
The only criterion for a posting to be eligible is that it must relate to the work and development of staff developers in Higher Education. You will know when a message comes to you from the list because all SDF@jiscmail.ac.uk messages have [SDF] automatically inserted in the subject line.
If you want to respond to a message received from this list, a simple REPLY goes only to the originator of the message, but if you use REPLY ALL on your response it goes to ALL those on the list.
Please pass this information to any others in your institution who have a staff development role.
