Would you like to contribute as a guest blogger for the Oxford Education Society?

We are looking for contributions of between 300-400 words on any issues of concern or interest to OES members. We intend to turn most of the webpages here in the Member Area into blog posts so that members can not only respond to the posts and resources here, but also contribute their own posts. In this way, we hope to increase the active online participation of all members to the society, no matter where in the world you are located.

Your post can be about anything related to the educational environment you are involved in from teaching resources, policy issues, national and international education, assessment, organisations you belong to or simply if you want to let off steam about something.

Submitting your post is easy - just contact us for a chat about your proposed topic.

The OES reserves the right not to publish each and every blog entry we receive depending on the volume of entries and the topics covered.
