Welcome to #HEAchat. Twitter chats are a great way to share ideas, get inspiration and meet new people. 

#HEAchat is a regular, open forum for HEA Fellows and non-Fellows to come together and share their experiences of teaching and learning in HE/FE. Each month the chat will cover disciplinary or other issues relating to teaching and learning.

Join us for a chance to connect with teaching and learning practitioners beyond your institution or discipline, share ideas and together find new, inventive ways to face challenges and be creative in your teaching and learning practice. Each chat is triggered by a blog that covers the chat topic. The pre-chat blog raises the questions, offers background sources and helps you think through the key issues.  

Together is better - #HEAchat and #LTHEchat are uniting

In the spirit of collaboration and to strengthen the reach and impact of both tweetchats, the #HEAchat and the #LTHEchat happen as one chat!

So join in from 20:00-21:00 on the last Wednesday of each month. Both hashtags will be used during this discussion.

If you’re new to Twitter chatting then read more here about how take part in a chat. Chats are open to all. Dr Kate Cuthbert @cuthbert_kate is on hand to help you get started and co-ordinate the chats.

If you have missed a chat we will post a Storify here the following day so you can catch up.

If you have an idea for a topic or theme, get in touch with us @HEA_chat – this is your chat.
