Mentioned in this episode:
Advice from Dave Parry at CLEAPS
Comments from Willy Adams at D&TA:
- Articles are typically 900 or 1400 words over two or three pages, with plenty of good quality images to inform and support the text.
- We like to feature department profiles, showing readers what is taking place in different schools across the country; as well as case studies of projects that others might follow and take inspiration from.
- Other articles might feature particular viewpoints on aspects of D&T, such as the value of craft-based making skills vs computer aided pure design work, and the range of approaches that teachers use in interpreting the curriculum and its delivery.
- While Designing is largely focused on celebrating excellence in design and upon outcomes, D&T Practice is more concerned with processes and the delivery of teaching D&T in the classroom.
- The magazines go out at half term (Designing) and at the start of term (D&T Practice) with copy deadlines approximately two months prior to the publication dates. Further details can be obtained from [email protected]
