Registering as an expert is a great way to be involved in public commentary about your areas of expertise. There are two platforms available for Flinders people who are interested in becoming a registered expert commentator:
- Flinders expert media guide
Flinders expert media guide is a list of our academics, researchers and other key personnel who've elected to be contacted by the media for comments, advice or publicity in their area of expertise. The list is compiled, printed and distributed to the media on an annual basis. The list is also available online.
To be added to the Flinders Expert Media Guide, update your Staff Business Page with the relevant information. The Expert Guide entry for you is automatically generated from your staff business web page. For more information about how to do this, refer to the Staff Business Web Page User Guide (PDF) available on the Staff Business Web Page website.
