#LTHEchat

The #LTHEchat is a weekly one hour tweetchat on Twitter that is open to all. It has a focus on discussions and debates around learning, teaching, assessment and supporting learning within higher education and it takes place on Wednesdays at 8pm (UK time) when Twitter will be on fire.

The chat has become an informal, open and regular professional development happening and a community for many many individuals working and studying in the UK but also further afield who join the chat regularly. Each week we welcome guests who stimulate a discussion around their chosen topic that is dear to their heart using a series of questions or prompts.

The #LTHEchat started in 2014 and thrives thanks to the community approach used to organise and manage the chats as well as the diverse voices and perspectives that are heard. The rotating organising teams are  volunteers from the #LTHEchat community, staff and students, who have the opportunity to be the steering wheel of the chats for about 10-12 weeks at the time and experience how it all works behind the scenes. The #LTHEchat collaborates with the Higher Education Academy, the RAISE network and other organisations, including ALT.

If you would like to host a discussion or debate via #LTHEchat or would like to volunteer to join a future organising team, or are an organisation interested in collaborating with us, please get in touch.
