Editors: Isabel Huet (Portuguese Open University & CIDTFF, LE@D), Teresa Pessoa and Fátima Sol (University of Coimbra, Portugal).   The 'idea' of this book was to move away from sharing experiences related to teaching and learning in higher education in just one or two countries, but instead, to organize a more European view on the policy, research and teaching practices that are shaping the way our students learn, academics teach and do research. We have a total of 16 chapters from academics in Portugal, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Sweden, the Netherlands, Spain, Italy, and the Czech Republic. The book i

  We are delighted to announce that Issue 21 of the Journal of Learning Development in Higher Education has now been released and is free to access here: https://journal.aldinhe.ac.uk/index.php/jldhe/index . What a fabulous reading for a rainy Thursday afternoon!   Like many other colleagues, we felt that September 2021 arrived out of nowhere, bringing with it unresolved uncertainties of the new academic year, and with it, we re-entered a 'new normal' in higher education. The 'postpandemic' university did not materialise and conversations around teaching in person versus online, blended or hybrid, in masks or socially distanced, still dominate our planning and delivery design.

Our next issue, the

What impact do these expectations have on disabled, chronically ill and neurodivergent colleagues?

Teaching with a disabliity

From an email discussion forum in reply to  One of the participants on our PGCert has asked about any resources about teaching for those with disabilities/ health issues as she has disabilities and long-term health issues.   On our course we talk a lot about students with disabilities but we don't really address it so much from the staff side of things. We also have all the usual stuff from HR but nothing specifically about teaching.   Does anyone know of anything useful I could point her towards? There is a book she can download for free on ableism in academia    https://policy.bristoluniversitypress.co.uk/lived-experiences-of-ableism-in-academia  and another coming out soon from Policy Press edited by Nicole Brown  details here  https://policy.bristoluniversitypress.co.uk/lived-experiences-of-ableism-in-academia One link was erroneous.
