Individual Membership

Why Become a Member?

To be part of a vibrant, global community… Becoming a full member makes you part of a vibrant, global community of educators dedicated to the vision of advancing the scholarship and practice of teaching and learning in higher education. Full members include faculty, scholars, researchers, administrators, staff, and other thought leaders from colleges, universities, government agencies, and non-governmental organizations from around the world who share this common vision. HETL connects and empowers a global community of educational leaders to transform higher education for a brighter future.

To be part of a collaborative, professional network… Becoming a full member enhances your career as you dialogue and network with other educators from around the globe. HETL full members represent all institutional types and all academic disciplines. HETL provides a world-wide communications linkage through inter-active dialog and exchange of ideas and knowledge. HETL provides a collegial and supportive environment for educators from many different cultures to collaborate with each other. HETL uses LinkedIn as one of the platforms for its  discussion forum, which any qualified educator may join for free.

To be part of an innovative, forward-thinking association… Becoming a full paid member supports the HETL mission and activities that provide the global higher education community with research, publishing, and resources needed to improve teaching and learning in the 21st century. HETL full members generate innovative ideas and contribute to the growing knowledge base on teaching and learning. As a result, your involvement allows us to advance higher in higher education.

HETL is a member driven organization and, as such, is supported primarily through the membership fees of full members. Although HETL makes every effort to keep costs to a minimum, certain recurring administrative costs (e.g., legal, accounting, site development) are necessary in order to continue operating as a non-profit organization. HETL earmarks these membership fees to pay for these administrative costs.

In addition to your individual membership, if your institution has an interest in partnering with HETL, please contact the executive director at [email protected]. Your partnership with HETL will demonstrate your institution’s commitment to excellence in teaching and learning.
