Report on our inaugural meeting

HeLF ... how did it all start? Well, some context is available in an article by Dr Paul Brett in SEDA, Issue 5.2 (June 2004), entitled Heads of e-Learning Forum - A strategic voice for e-learning from UK HEIs. (

This reflects on the discussion at the first meeting, outlining the initial drivers with the observation of HeLF as a thriving discussion around sharing our thoughts on issues such as HEFCE's e-Learning Strategy, electronic submission of student work and of course the recent dramatic developments of UK-eU.

Wow, ten years later some things are still hot topics :-)
