Share ideas and good practice

The Efficiency Exchange is here to help you share your ideas and good practice to help create smarter working universities.

We’ve been sharing good practice blogs from university professionals since 2013. Along the way, we have highlighted a wide range of projects to advance efficiency and effectiveness in the sector, so we’re pretty there is a story that is relevant to you.

Your blog articles, case studies, reports, toolkits and events are all welcome on Efficiency Exchange. You can find out more about getting started as a contributor and producing a case study. But we are only as good as our contributors – and that is where you come in. We always welcome your suggestions for stories about examples of innovation and good practice at your university. We offer an unrivalled opportunity to showcase your work and build your network.

In a survey of our contributors, we had some really positive feedback from people who had shared their stories.

“The whole process of contributing to Efficiency Exchange was easy.” Contributor feedback June 2017

Not only that, the vast majority (87.5%) of respondents to the survey said that Efficiency Exchange had raised the profile of their work within their own networks. And 37.5% said that their contribution had raised the profile of their work with new contacts.

For some, sharing via Efficiency Exchange has meant their projects have had a bigger reach:

“Due to the fantastic support from the Efficiency Exchange, our survey reached a world-wide audience. Thank you Efficiency Exchange!” Nicola Cairns, University of Strathclyde

And a quarter of bloggers have found that their contributions to Efficiency Exchange has increased the visibility of their work in their institution.

“The work we were undertaking has achieved much greater internal recognition after being highlighted on the Efficiency Exchange.” Steve Yorkstone, Edinburgh Napier University

If you have a story about how you are helping to make your institution more efficient, effective and innovative, we’ll be happy to help you tell it. Please email us with your ideas to get involved.
