HERDSA CONNECT (formerly HERDSA NEWS) is the magazine of the Higher Education Research and Development Society of Australasia.

HERDSA CONNECT is a magazine format periodical that presents topical issues related to higher education research and development. HERDSA CONNECT is intended to celebrate the achievements of our members and to inspire and inform researchers, developers and practitioners in the Australasian higher education sector. HERDSA CONNECT provides topical articles on educational research and development programs and activities and keeps members in touch with the HERDSA network. Information about branch activities and conferences; publications, HERDSA members, research in progress, and other activities relevant to HERDSA members in Australasia and beyond is provided. HERDSA CONNECT offers the opportunity for less formal publication of reports on research in progress, inspirational practices, funded projects, successes and ideas.

HERDSA CONNECT is published two times a year with a printed version distributed to all HERDSA members. A digital version is available on the HERDSA web site for the wider audience interested in issues related to higher education research and development in the Australasian region.
