About the Webinar:
In this informal presentation, Dr. Hayo Reinders looks at the topic of getting published and – more broadly – at disseminating your work. He starts by looking at the many reasons (personal, professional, and academic) that teachers and academics have for sharing their research, observations, reflections and experiences with the wider community, and the range of possible ‘outputs’. He then reviews the broad range of platforms and channels available nowadays, from traditional anonymous peer- reviewed journals, published teaching materials, practitioner-oriented forms of publishing, as well as less formal social networks. He highlights some of the potential pitfalls and some strategies for choosing the most appropriate avenue for publishing your work. In the later part of the presentation, he offers some ‘insider tips’ to increase the chance of getting your work published. There is plenty of opportunity to ask questions!
