The blog site will support a campaign aimed at lifting the profile of teaching as a career, and is being looked after in the Faculty of Education.

The Top of the Class blog was created in our multiuser WordPress instance to provide a temporary work around for a marketing campaign site. The plan is that the WordPress based site will eventually be replaced by the Social Media module in the University’s AEM platform.

http://blog.topoftheclass.ac.nz/ is the WordPress site, and this will be linked to from the front door for the campaign www.topoftheclass.ac.nz.

The campaign team can be contacted through info@topoftheclass.ac.nz.
