Who we are and what we’re looking for
DLNET is a network of cultural heritage professionals who use digital as one of the tools in the toolbox for heritage learning. This means that we support anyone who would like to use digital to deliver learning, no matter whether their job title includes ‘digital’ or not. We do not assume prior knowledge of the technologies we talk about, so this needs to be kept in mind when blogging on DLNET or when being interviewed.
The DLNET blog is a space for sharing best practice and lessons learned in terms of using digital technologies for learning in the cultural heritage sector. We are especially interested in highlighting digital learning experiences that can be replicated without major investments, as these tend to be the most useful for cultural heritage professionals. We also occasionally publish think pieces that explore current trends and discussions within the cultural heritage sector or the tech community, as long as they are relevant to our audience.
Content should be useful and compelling to the reader, not self serving – please don’t view this as an opportunity to plug your paid-for services.
How can I get involved?
You can either propose a guest blog or you can propose to be interviewed by one of the DLNET committee members, using this link.
Tell us a bit about yourself:
Organisation (if applicable):
Would you prefer to be interviewed, or are you proposing a guest blog?
If you are proposing to write a guest blog
- The length of blogs on DLNET is between 500 and 800 words. Longer submissions will not be published.
- The style of blog entries is more on the informal side of things. We appreciate being able to hear and see the human behind a project or a think piece. This still means that we are expecting references to be checked and any multimedia content to be rights cleared.
- Multimedia / interactive content, such as images, videos, infographics, or other media need to be cleared of copyright (so that we all know that you are allowed to use it), and submitted in a publishable format: please ensure that the image resolution is high enough for web publishing, and that other multimedia content can be embedded and displayed in WordPress.
