Get involved, and contribute your own resources on aspects of learning and teaching.

If you would like to contribute your own resources, here are some guidelines to keep in mind.  Complete resources should be sent to Ali Press (a.press@westminster.ac.uk) in Leadership and Professional Development.  Ali can also help you with creating resources.

We’d like to keep the resources short enough that people realistically can engage with them over a sandwich or cup of tea. This means for a video, or screen cast, we’re aiming for a maximum length of around 5 or 6 minutes (8 at the very most).

Please do examine your video or screen cast before posting, to ensure good sound and image quality. If you are doing a series, please catalogue it with appropriate sequenced titles and you might want to consider building in a content preview function about your series.

If you do create a video, or screen cast, you might also like to consider creating a hand-out to go with it for people to refer to if they implement something similar in their own curriculum.

For a case study, we’re looking for contributions no longer than two sides of A4. A pdf version is ideal for posting.

The main thing to keep in mind when creating your resources is what are your key messages. What are the two or three main things you want someone to take away from your video or case study?

You might like to structure your resources around the following, or similar, headings:

  • What you did
  • Why
  • How
  • What are the features, advantages and benefits you discovered from this approach
  • How it was received by your students
  • What you would change next time

Please try a keep titles short and terms searchable. Please try and adopt a conversational tone in your content.

Examples of the kind of content that is useful include tip sheets, audio (podcasts) and video (or webinars, screencasts etc). These resources must be developed independent of commercial interests and be free from commercial advertising. Please do not use copyright material without permission.

For further guidance, or an informal discussion about contributing resources, contact Ali Press, a.press@westminster.ac.uk in Leadership and Professional Development.
