HERDSA webinar series

HERDSA state Branch chairs and friends are launching a webinar series next week guided by the theme ‘Supporting and Sustaining a Community of Online Practice in Higher Education’. Running fortnightly or monthly on a Thursday (3pm NZST, 1pm AEST & 11am AWST), HERDSA members can log into a zoom session to explore topics we hope are helpful to people working in Higher Education during this challenging period.

Our first webinar is scheduled for Thursday 30th April on the topic of ‘Enabling online education: access/equity, engagement and innovation in digital spaces’ by Jennifer Stokes from the University of South Australia.

Further upcoming seminars include:
14th May Students as Partners in Global Learning – Wendy Green
11th June ‘Academic Integrity during Covid 10’ – Rowena Harper

Please check out the HERDSA website for webinar registration details and presenter biographies https://www.herdsa.org.au/

Taylor and Francis message on printed HERD Journal - HERD Online version will continue to be available

Due to the ongoing impact of the coronavirus pandemic, we want to share an important update with our society partners, on decisions we’ve made to manage publishing operations during the pandemic of which some of you may already be aware or have, in recent times, asked about.

With great reluctance we have decided to stop printing journals from 10 April until further notice.

We are seeing disruption to the distribution supply chain for printed journals: as of the first week of April the postal services of 42 countries have stopped accepting inward deliveries. In addition, many air mail services in and out of our major print hubs in the UK, US and Singapore are no longer operating due to reduced air freight capacity. Finally, a significant number of institutions we mail journals to are closed for business and are no longer accepting post.

We apologize for how this will have affected you and your members and want to reassure you that online access to our journal content is not affected. Your journal(s) will continue to publish online according to their usual schedules on our journal platform, Taylor & Francis Online.

We plan to resume printing in May and, at the point we do start to print again, your members will receive the print issues that would have been dispatched during the period in which printing ceased. We will keep the situation under close review, especially with regard to public health concerns, and keep you updated with any changes.

Learning Communities Journal extended deadline to June 1, 2020 for Volume 12
Deadline for Volume 12 Submissions: June 1, 2020

The editorial staff of the Learning Communities Journal wishes everyone good health and well-being at this time of crisis and upheaval in our personal and professional lives due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We continue to work remotely to process manuscript submissions. In an effort to accommodate the upheaval in everyone's work patterns, we are pleased to extend the due date for Volume 12 (2020) submissions to June 1, 2020.

The editors of the Learning Communities Journal invite manuscripts in a new area, Social Learning Spaces. This cutting-edge topic is in development by Etienne and Bev Wenger-Trayner. Of course, we welcome our traditional topics about learning communities, communities of practice, and faculty and student learning communities. We also encourage colleagues in areas of business and industry to send manuscripts on the topics of learning, practice, and community.
