How to join

Joining the Network

There are two parts to the IDL Network. This website provides articles, posts and pages of (hopefully) useful and interesting material on interdisciplinary learning. It also provides web-links and pointers to free downloadable teaching resources that offer good exemplars of IDL and ‘starter’ ideas for and about IDL development and delivery. Think of it as a newspaper or magazine all about IDL, with links to free resources.

The dynamic and interactive Slack Channel is where practitioners can share ideas, ask questions, challenge and discuss interdisciplinary learning. This is your IDL staffroom and professional network. Think of this as the Teacher Forum.

Subscribing to the website

Pop your email address in the form below and click “sign up” to receive notification of new articles when they are posted.

Alternatively, when you comment on a post, you are given the opportunity to receive new comments on that thread, or to be notified when new posts are made.

Don’t worry, it’s easy to unsubscribe at any time. We will not use your data for anything not connected to running this site.

Joining the Slack Space

Get in touch for an invite. Tell us a little about yourself and why you want to join the IDL Network. Teachers, including experienced, probationer and student teachers, are especially welcome.

House rules

Of course, this and the Slack forum are professional spaces and therefore we expect nothing but professional language and behaviour towards our visitors and users, including the authors of posts, and commenters. Posts and commentary are also expected to be relevant to interdisciplinary learning in Scotland. Thank you for your understanding.

Adding material

If you would like to contribute to the website, community or join the Slack space, or to contribute a link to IDL resources, please get in touch. We are keen to hear from you, whether you have an idea for a single article, just want to learn, or would like to be a regular contributor.
