Times Higher Education Campus+ partnership

The University of Adelaide has entered into a partnership arrangement with THE Campus+ which provides a platform for academic and professional staff to disseminate insights and advice on key areas of higher education. 

THE Campus  aims to provide actionable resources for practitioners who wish to make enhancements in key areas of higher education, such as teaching and learning; impact and sustainability; internationalisation; early career research support; research management; equity, diversity and inclusion. The website also provides the space for the sharing of views about current topics and challenges in higher education delivery and enables connections with peers across the globe. 

Times HE

University of Adelaide academic and professional staff who wish to share their practice or engage in dialogue with peers on an international stage can submit resources (written or video) or opinion pieces. The Campus+ editorial team will provide guidance and support to prepare submissions for publishing.  

You can see pieces by the University of Adelaide staff on our institutional page.

Contributing to this platform is a great way to share your practice and would be useful evidence for internal or external teaching award applications. THE Campus content has attracted more than 800,000 page views and their newsletter is sent to more than 29,000 higher education professionals globally.

THE Campus have specific style requirements for the written and video resources and opinion pieces which are outlined in these guides . You will save yourself considerable time if you read these carefully before starting your submission. 

You can pitch an idea or submit a draft piece on a wide range of higher education topics at any time. THE Campus will also make fortnightly calls for content on specific topics.

Please contact the Teaching Excellence team to discuss your ideas for submission or if you have any questions.
