BRITE webinars and articles: guide for guest contributors

At BRITE we are passionate about sharing innovative ideas and experiences which relate to inclusive practice in education. We welcome contributions from practitioners who would like to engage with our community of professionals. We offer two ways to do this:

  • deliver a guest presentation in our popular free webinar series, and/or
  • write an article on a relevant topic for The BRITE Blog

Benefits

Reach a wider audience. BRITE webinars and blog articles are publicised online and in the BRITE eNews which currently has over 600 subscribers. This number includes college staff development officers; teaching, lecturing and support staff in colleges and universities; and a range of professionals in the public and voluntary sector.

Experiment with web-based presentations – with full support from experienced facilitators. We take care of all the technical aspects of webinars, from uploading your slides and video clips, to managing incoming questions from attendees. If you’d rather not deliver a live webinar, we can record you in advance. We’ll facilitate the webinar remotely, or you can visit our office if you’d prefer.

Access a recording of your online presentation anytime, anywhere. All BRITE webinars are added to a public archive, to which you can direct anyone interested in your work. Many people choose to view previously recorded webinars ‘on demand’ at a time that suits them.

Next steps

Webinars are usually 30 minutes long. Access our webinar archive to get a feel for the medium and the kind of topics covered.

Blog articles should be around 500 words and be accompanied by at least one photograph or image (jpg please). Word documents or html are preferred.

Send us a brief outline of your subject, so that we can ensure it fits with our webinar programme and/or blog content. Then we’ll work with you to identify a date for broadcast or publication.

We’ll meet you online in advance to give you an opportunity to familiarise yourself with the webinar environment (the industry-leading eLearning platform, Adobe Connect) and to get some top tips from one of our experienced facilitators.

Please submit initial enquiries to the Resources and Communications Co-ordinator at kmote@brite.ac.uk.

We’re currently planning the webinar programme for 2014, so if you are interested in guesting, please contact us as soon as possible. Blog articles may be submitted anytime throughout the year.
