The HERDSA 2007 International conference explores the theme Enhancing Higher Education, Theory and Scholarship.

Keynote presentations will explore aspects of this theme, including the theoretical frameworks of learning and teaching in higher education, the scholarship of learning and teaching, and how the theory and scholarship translate into a meaningful student experience. The conference will encourage wide debate on these themes and will also include a number of social activities to encourage networking and interaction across the conference community.

The conference to be held in Adelaide, South Australia, will be the 30th annual conference in the Society’s prestigious series, attracting members and non-members from Australasia and around the world. The conference will be held at the Hilton Hotel, Adelaide. The Hilton Adelaide overlooks Victoria Square and is centrally located to Adelaide’s shopping, theatre and business centre. Adelaide is the capital city of South Australia and the wine and festival capital of Australia. Your food and wine experience begins right in the city centre with the Adelaide Central Market; the National Wine Centre of Australia; vibrant cafes and restaurants boasting some of Australia’s best chefs. A range of tours may be undertaken either before or following the conference.

We welcome you to Adelaide and hope that you will join us in July 2007.
