If you are new to Boards.ie or if you just have a question and you need an answer, the Boards FAQ should be your first stop.
If you cant find the answer there, contact one of the Teaching & Lecturing Moderators. (spurious and Musicmental85)
The following is a list of rules that should be followed when posting in Teaching & Lecturing. This list is not exhaustive. Failure to comply may result in an infraction or ban.
Keep it civil
Usual Boards.ie rules apply. No trolling, flaming, trying to get a rise out of people. Please do not comment on the spelling and grammar of other posters.
Fair comment and constructive criticism about teachers and lecturers is permitted in this forum. However posts with general sweeping statements criticising all teachers or lecturers, or those naming and abusing particular individuals may result in the poster being banned from the forum.
Please do not post personal information about yourself or about anyone else, including e-mail addresses and phone numbers.
Problems With Posts/Posters
If you have a problem with a post or a poster, use the Report Post button (the little red triangle) and let the moderators deal with it. Back seat moderating is not permitted. Do not reply to moderator warnings on-thread. PM the moderator if you have a problem with a moderator decision.
Do not comment on the spelling and grammar of others.
Please stay on topic. Off topic posts will be deleted. If you continue to post off-topic posts you may be infracted or banned.
Get your facts right
If you are posting something as fact, you will be expected to back it up. For example, 'Loads of teachers have been fired' is not good enough. Neither is 'Irish teachers are the highest paid in Europe.' If you're going to post it, you need to prove it. (Please note that there is a difference between opinion and fact.)
Advertising of products and/or services is not allowed. Spammers and shills are also not tolerated. If you wish to buy ad space, contact email@example.com.
There is a thread here to advertise Education jobs in. Please read the first post before posting in that thread.
Help With Assignments
Please don't discuss or offer the answers to specific assignments or questions. This is especially relevant to those offering help for financial reward.
Please do not offer/look for grinds in this forum. There is a sticky in the Leaving Cert forum for this purpose.
From time to time teachers will start threads looking for advice. These threads are to be used to give constructive advice only, not for soap-boxing, etc. These thread will be obvious because the title will have an ADVICE prefix.
Because of the nature of this forum, many questions are asked over and over again. Please use the search function before starting a new thread.
Posting in languages other than English
Posting in Irish or other languages is fine, however you should post a translation to English if you are going to do so. Posts that are not translated to English will be deleted.
Normal boards.ie rules also apply.
If you have a problem with a mod you should follow the Dispute Resolution Procedure.
