HETL, the Higher education teaching and learning association

August 15, 2017 8:23 am Published by Leave your thoughts

What’s in an acronym? I had a brief shock when the Higher education teaching and learning association (HETL)  came across my in-tray:

HETL Call for Articles and Special Issue Proposals

HETL Communications at International Higher Education Teaching and Learning (HETL) Association.

Please submit your articles to The Journal of Applied Research in Higher Education (JARHE),..:

HETL is headquartered in New York and present “big”: Special consultative status with the United Nations kind of thing. I am not sure why I did not run across them when I was searching for terms while deciding how to rename BeJLT back in July 2016. But HETL is not the Journal. The Journal is the Journal of applied research in higher education (JARHE). Are they in process of renaming? Anyway for a brief moment I worried that HETL was too close to HEJLT and that they were really big. (You know, shadows of the schoolyard cast deep. Had I not done my homework?) I trust we are OK as HEJLT. And I am joining HETL and adding JARHE to my reading list.
