OVERVIEW
top of page

The Higher Education Teaching and Learning Association (referred to as HETL) is a non-profit association whose aim is to bring together educators from around the world to dialogue, network, and collaborate on issues relevant to teaching and learning in higher education. The vision of HETL is to advance the scholarship and practice of teaching and learning in higher education. To this end, HETL works with and supports individual educators as well as all types of educational institutions, associations, centers, and other groups interested in improving teaching and learning in higher education.

The HETL Portal gives the association a public presence and serves as a digital gateway and clearinghouse to a wide array of resources and information on teaching and learning. The HETL Review disseminates current knowledge and research on teaching and learning by publishing peer-reviewed interdisciplinary, interprofessional articles from educators and researchers from around the world.

HETL members represent all disciplines, functions, and levels within the higher education ecosystem around the world. HETL is open to higher education professionals from all institutional types and missions. HETL members represent a broad cross-section of professionals in higher education.

Approximate representation by location:

  • North America (50%)
  • Europe (20%)
  • South America (12%)
  • Asia (12%)
  • Australia (3.0%)
  • Africa (3.0%)
