The FASoS Teaching & Learning Blog offers teaching staff a platform for the exchange of ideas, best practices and opinions. Blog posts discuss particular challenges and situations in problem-based learning, novel ways of testing, use of digital tools, interactive lecturing, and so on.

Blog posts ideally should:

  • Be between 500-800 words in length.
  • Be submitted with a catchy title and a short summary of the central argument.
  • Be submitted with a picture and a short bio of the author(s).
  • Be submitted in British English, using ‘s’ instead of ‘z’.
  • Be accessible, with specialist academic language kept to a minimum.
  • Be communicated in a straightforward and readable manner, using active and engaging language (first person is preferable) to bring a particular topic to life.
  • Be nuanced, in the sense of fostering a balanced and informed understanding of teaching and learning in higher education, in general, and at FASoS, in particular.
  • Contain examples, such as assignment texts, slides, and pictures, where appropriate.
  • Contain links to academic articles, news features or related blog posts.
  • Contain suggestions for further reading and/or links to related faculty or university events.
