How to contribute to this blog?

If you would like to submit an article to the blog please contact the NTF Association Committee via the ‘contact’ link in the first instance. You’ll come through to Viv (who maintains this blog) and she will correspond with you.

Blog articles are informal pieces of writing and can be of any length. Articles have ranged from anything between 200 and over 1000 words. If you wish to include citations and references for a more academic article, or build in hyperlinks to further information, then that is fine. We would welcome blogs on any aspect of NTF activity or NTF Association activity, and particularly would like to receive articles about innovative educational practices – teaching, assessment or use of technology for example.

We would very much like to produce blogs that contain a photograph so would encourage you to do so!


How else can I contribute?

If you have your own website or blog you can contact us with the link to include in the side bar on the main  page.

If you have photographs, videos or any media from conferences and presentations, we can also include on this blog directly by you sending us the file. We can also place links for media you have on Flickr, YouTube for example.

We would prefer resources that are openly licensed using Creative Commons. This allows you to share your materials with us, and depending on the term of license you choose, it may then be remixed and repurposed if you so wish. What a great way to disseminate your creative work!

Have a play with the Creative Commons license chooser to find a level that suits you, or do email if you require assistance.

Make sure you have the full permissions of the individuals featuring in any photos of videos to be either openly licensed and to be captured in the first place. See document below.
