Heads of e-Learning Forum

The Heads of E-Learning Forum (HeLF) is a network of senior staff in institutions engaged in promoting, supporting and developing technology enhanced learning. We have over 125 nominated Heads from UK Higher Education institutions and a regular programme of well attended events.  HeLF also represents the interests of its members to various national bodies and agencies including the Higher Education Academy and JISC as well as being represented on HEFCE's e-Learning Partnership Board.

HeLF focuses on e-learning and technology enhanced learning as an aspect of institutional strategy in the following ways:

1. To act as an advisory body for national and governmental organisations on issues relating to e-learning institutional strategy and implementation. HeLF intends to be proactive in soliciting responses from such bodies and promoting the views of its membership. HeLF aims to represent the particular strategic e-learning interests of UK higher education in an authoritative and coherent manner.

2. To share knowledge on the strategic implications of developing and implementing e-learning. This includes comparing organisational structures in e-learning, and also roles and responsibilities of e-learning Heads, and liaising with other organisations involved in e-learning.

3. To support the processes by which e-learning strategy can be effectively created, and implemented, including advice, support and co-operation between members. HeLF has regular meetings, an active discussion list and takes its direction from a steering group of seven members, chosen to give a cross-sectional representation of UK HEIs.
