Higher Education groups on Linkedin worth knowing.

Here’s some Higher Ed ‘groups’ on Linkedin that, over the last few months, I have found to have the most interesting ‘discussions’ between professionals in the Higher Ed industry. I also have noticed that there seems to be less ‘promotional’ type postings, and more person-to-person comments and sharing of ideas going in these groups than some of the others. Isn’t that what it’s all about?

‘The Teaching Professor’: approximately 10,000 members.

‘Higher Education Teaching and Learning’ (HETL): approximately 21,000 members.

‘Educause’: approximately 18,000 members

Check them out the next time you’re on Linkedin.
