There are many different ways you can share your work, research, projects and initiatives with others.
Articles on this website tend to reach a wider audience than events. They’re great ‘social objects’ – that is, short and engaging stories that can have a permanent home and be easily shared with your professional networks.
Online events are a great way to present. They can connect you with like-minded people, which may help uncover ideas and spark further inspiration. Presenting online is also a valuable and practical skill, especially for your own professional development. Read our guidelines on presenting your work here.
Ideas you can share
You’re probably already doing things in your own teaching and everyday work that would be of interest to others. What if you could inspire people beyond your own staffroom, college or immediate network with an article, infographic or short video?
Here are some ideas to help you think about what you might like to share:
- Teaching practices: Are you trying something effective in your teaching and learning context? Many authors here have shared their strategies, processes and what they learned along the way.
Example | Creating a welcome video
- Presentations: Have you recently delivered a conference presentation? These can easily be turned into an article for a wider audience.
Example | Interactive educational videos
- Project outcomes: Don’t let hard-won project findings get lost in long documents that only a few people might read! Communicate the story of how a project came about, what was involved and what happened next.
Example | A retention map from Edith Cowan College
- Research or publications: Create a short version of research you’ve already had published. It could be adapted from your work in an academic journal, an education website or even your own blog.
Example | Scaffolding student writing & the ZPD
Word counts and format
Lengths and formats vary depending on the nature of the story and your own preferences. As a rough guide, articles on the website tend to be between 300-1,200 words.
