There are two ways to list an EDT-related event on the IEDTA.net website: as an Event on our Events Calendar, or as a Post on our “blog.” Some events can be listed on both, but they are appropriate for different things.
Event listings (on our Events Calendar) are appropriate for single events (perhaps taking place over several days) which are open to all members of the EDT community, such as lectures, conferences, or immersions. Core training meetings (which are open only to enrollees), and announcements for core trainings (which include multiple individual meetings) do not belong in the Events Calendar.
In addition to event listings, we have “Posts“—items of interest to the EDT community, which appear on the main page of our IEDTA.net website. If you are planning a series of events, a Post would be an appropriate way to announce your series. For example, if you are planning to offer a new core training, or if you are announcing openings in an existing training program, a Post is the right choice. Also, if you are offering the same workshop on several occasions, a Post offers you a way to describe the workshop, and it would also be appropriate to have the workshop listed in the Event Calendar as an Event each time you offer it. The same goes for a series of events where the individual events can be attended independently, such as a film series. This has the advantage that each individual event can link back to the Post, which will have the longer description. Posts also include other items of interest to the EDT community such as reviews of EDT-related resources such as books.
How to Submit an Event for the Events Calendar
To get your Event listed on our Events Calendar, use this form for creating a new calendar listing.
The Event listing includes both free-form description and specific fields for dates, location, and organizer contact information, among others. The program that we use to manage the calendar is designed to make it easy to re-use the same information about the event organizer for multiple events; in the same way it is also easy to re-use the location/venue information. If you have posted an Event before and the organizer and/or venue information is the same, please re-use the previous information to avoid duplicate records in the system. Please bear with the complexity when you list your first Event.
Add-on events do not generally get a separate listing; if your conference has an optional supervision component in the days following, it would get a separate Events Calendar listing only if it is open to people who did not attend the conference. In either case, it can be mentioned in the conference description.
How to Submit a Post for the Main Page of the IEDTA.net Website
If you have an event-related announcement (such as an announcement of a series of events) which you would like to appear as Post, please email your text and a suggested Post title to firstname.lastname@example.org. To suggest a non-event related Post which you think might be of interest to the EDT community, please email it to email@example.com.
The main page of the IEDTA website has “headlines” for a number of Posts; clicking on the headline takes the viewer to the full text of the post. When a post is first published, its headline appears at the top of the main page headlines. As other Posts are published, the headline will be pushed down until it lands on the second page, and so on. However, your full Post will still be accessible on the site.
- Once you submit your event, there will be a brief review process; we hope to post events within two to three days of submission. If a week goes by and your event has not been listed, please contact per the instructions below.
- These announcements are for events that IEDTA members and EDT organizations give or sponsor; if you have heard about an event that you think would be of interest to EDT practitioners but that you are not sponsoring, the EDT-List email discussion is the appropriate venue to inform colleagues; and
- The IEDTA reserves the right to make final decisions concerning the posting of any information on this site, and to edit Events and Posts for clarity, length, and style guidelines specific to our site.
