What and how can I contribute?
This is the public version of the KCI. Remember to login in order to participate in Communities and Forums.
A collaborative platform
The Knowledge Centre on Interpretation is a collaborative platform, which depends on your input to be a success.
We need your enthusiasm, energy and expertise!
The platform has been designed with three ‘static’ parts filled with content and information at the top of the home page – Knowledge, Innovation, Partners – and the more ‘dynamic’ parts are at the bottom – Collaborative spaces, Networking, News and Events.
However, they all feed into one another:
In this way the ‘static’ part is not really static at all as what happens in the ‘dynamic’ sections can be fed into the content-based static sections.
For example, by using the communities, groups of users can get together and produce content for the static part. The WIKIdocs function allows users to work together on a text that can then be submitted to the Knowledge Centre editorial team for validation before being published.
In order to be able to contribute you must be an authenticated user, and create a user profile. More information about how to do this can be found here.
There are many other different ways of contributing to the ‘static’ sections and pages:
- You can use the contact form to help us complete the information on a number of pages in the static part, for example on:
- course providers
- professional associations
- regulations and practices
- useful books and resources
- You are encouraged to send in any training material for publication
- You can e mail us at any time with comments and suggestions
- On every page there is a button asking for feedback which is sent directly to the editorial team
The ‘dynamic’ section has even more possibilities to shape the Knowledge Centre.
The forums are designed more for open questions and queries, and we hope you will be able to help answer these, as well as ask your own.
Communities on the other hand are focussed on particular topics - you can create your own or join and contribute to existing ones. Help bring people together to discuss specific, important issues, and if appropriate produce content through the WIKIdocs function. Content produced by the communities may become part of the content of the Knowledge Centre.
For a comprehensive guide as to how exactly you can use these spaces please consult the Users’ guide to Communities and Forums
In order to the rules of the game are clear, there is a Code of conduct for contributors.
