Hello everybody and Happy New Year,
In the spirit of collaboration and to strengthen the reach and impact of both tweetchats, the #HEAchat and the #LTHEchat have agreed to unite from January 2016. This is exciting news for all of us!
From 27 January the two chats will combine with #HEAchat moving into the #LTHE timeslot of 20:00-21:00 on the last Wednesday of each month. Both hashtags will be used during this discussion.
Yes, the chat just got even bigger – together is better! Bringing together the two communities will extend the range of voices heard, the issues discussed and widen the networks of participants in both chats. This is another example of HEA building creative, collaborative partnerships with the HE sector to provide our Fellows with a range of formal and informal professional development, learning and networking opportunities.
We are very excited about this new collaborative adventure into the world of learning and teaching in higher education and would like to thank the #LTHEchat team, especially Chrissi Neratzi and Sue Beckingham for making it happen.
Our first chat will be on 27 January 20:00-21:00 on the topic of the added value of using social media during academic conferences. We will post a pre-chat blog here the week before to get you thinking.
See you all on the 27 January.
Kandy and the #HEAchat team
