What HECI’s about

The Higher Education Community of Inquiry (HECI) has been established to facilitate discussion on issues concerning higher education.

This website contributes to this aim by providing a space for discussion, collecting relevant resources such as articles and recordings of talks, and a calendar of events. We hope it helps people become and stay both informed and connected.

Here you can start or participate in discussions, read or contribute blog posts, share relevant articles/podcasts/videos/etc., find out about events and meetings we’re holding and generally engage with the wide world of ‘issues in higher education’.
