Goals and mission
The division Higher Education of the Netherlands Educational Research Association first focuses on stimulating educational research regarding higher education. The second goal is to stimulate the use of results of educational research in the design and evaluation of teaching and learning programmes and professional development of teachers in higher education. The third goal is to enhance the professional quality of our members who are working in different positions in the field of higher education. At this moment the division has about 120 members. Our members are involved as researcher, teacher, educational consultant or advisor for policy of higher education, or in a combination of these functions.
The division has regular meetings on innovative and inspiring themes in this domain of higher education research. On the annual national research conference of the Netherlands Educational Research Association, the division and its members are involved in papers sessions, symposia and other presentations of research in the field of higher education.
