We welcome guest posts, and publish one per week. However, we tend to get booked out quite far in advance for guest posts. The general content we look for is evidence-based education, particularly related to cognition: articles about learning, study strategies, or teaching strategies, with an emphasis on research-based recommendations. We also love to hear from teachers about their experiences putting evidence-based recommendations into practice.
We also accept guest posts for our weekly digests. These posts are somewhat different in that the topic can go beyond evidence-based practice and can focus more on tools that teachers might use (e.g., we did a digest on websites that are helpful for grading writing).
If you are interested in submitting a guest post, the next step would be contact us using the field below with a suggested topic and brief outline of the post you would like to write, and then if we agree on the topic and outline, we can schedule a date for publication of the blog. We would then need a draft from you two weeks before the publication date, so we can go back and forth with edits. The publication date we decide on can be somewhat flexible depending on your timeline and space in our schedule.
We should mention at this point that we do not have money to pay guest bloggers, and we also do not allow any advertising on our blog. However, if you have a book or other work of your own that you would like to discuss, we do offer an interview-style guest post option, where you would be free to discuss your work in more detail in the last question. Of course, we will always acknowledge you as the author of the blog post and link back to your own blog or other site and/or social media profile at the top of the guest post.
Note: If we publish your guest post, you will retain copyright of your post. You are free to reblog the post if you like. We only ask that you link back to our page where your guest post is featured, and mention that the post was originally published on learningscientists.org.
Looking forward to hearing your ideas!
The Learning Scientists.
