A new Digital Education blog
A new Digital Education blog is being developed and will be launched early in 2017. The aim is for this to act as a hub for academics from all areas of the University to share best practice in the creative use of digital tools and practices in learning and teaching primarily with other Lincoln academics.
The content of the blog will be written by academics for academics and we are now looking for contributions about any learning or teaching initiatives or projects that have involved experimental or inventive use of digital platforms or tools.
What we are looking for
Contributions can be in either written or video format. If you decide on the latter, guidance on style and format or support in filming can be provided if required.
Written content needs to be accessible and easily digestible using sub-headings and/or short paragraphs with pieces ideally around 500-750 (1000 max) words in length.
The style should also be less formal than that written for journals or academic papers. Accessible writing will travel further, potentially attracting new audiences to your work.
End with links to the original article (this can be done in the body of the text instead of referencing).
You may also include a short bio of yourself and the university (if desired) with links to website and social media accounts.
If your initiative is still in progress, you can write about what you have done to date and provide a quick update post at a later date.
Please submit your post as a Word document or provide a link if you have written an existing blog post.
Photos relating to the initiative would also be helpful.
