How do new words or examples get added to the Definitions Project website?
Each year, NAI puts together a review panel from amongst agencies and organizations related to the field of nonformal education and interpretation. This panel reviews terms that have been suggested for inclusion by users of the website. Once the terms have been reviewed, the panel will determine an appropriate definition for those terms that are to be included in the glossary. The website and the glossary will continue to grow each year as new terms and examples of existing terms are added. If you have a recommendation for a term to be included, please use the form below to submit it for review.

What if I want to add examples or comments about a specfic term?
If you have examples or commentary for a specific term, please visit that term and fill out the form for either your example or commentary. Forms to add your examples and commentary are in the respective tabs of each term/definition. Examples and commentaries for each term are reviewed as they become available, and do not need to wait until the next year's term review.
