Higher Education Research Network (HERN)

The HERN aims to provide a space for the development and dissemination of research on higher education and for explorations of working and learning in the sector. 

Four strands of activity

Forum for Research on Higher Education: online research seminars featuring invited speakers. 

Research Methods Workshops: demystifying methods and methodological approaches through practical expert-led workshops. 

Breaking Down Research Excellence: Impact? Open access? External funding? What are they? Why do they matter? How do we achieve them? 

Exploring Higher Education Pedagogy: reading sessions focused on texts that enable thinking through the challenges and specificities of teaching in HE.  

Network convenors 

Dr Naomi Hodgson and Dr Marlena Chrostowska.

HERN welcomes new members. Its membership is open to all interested staff members at Edge Hill University and colleagues outside Edge Hill.
