HERDSA members benefit by getting to know, and know about, other HERDSA members and their areas of expertise. You can meet other HERDSA members at local activities organised by your HERDSA BranchHERDSA Special Interest Groups (SIG) provides HERDSA members with a network of like-minded colleagues with whom you can talk about shared research interests as well as potentially undertake some collaborative research. The New Scholars network connects members new to higher education research.

The Talking about Teaching and Learning (TATAL) initiative helps to develop communities of practice that facilitate scholarly discussion about teaching and learning in higher education

  • contributing articles about your practice, or book reviews, to HERDSA NEWS
  • publishing your research in the HERD journal
  • getting active in your local branch
  • presenting your research at the annual HERDSA conference
  • nominating for a position on the executive
  • attending the annual general meeting held annually at the HERDSA conference.
  • joining the TATAL Group
