Higher Education Close-Up (HECU) is a virtual network for in-depth research into higher education. It aims to provide a forum for discussion about, and the enhancement of, this kind of research via a twitter account (https://twitter.com/higher_hecu) which provides a space to discuss ideas about theory and method in HE research, to share ideas and to build collaborations.
Prior to the creation of this twitter account, forum discussions took place via a JISCMAIL list, and the archive is still available via http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/lists/HIGHER-EDUCATION-CLOSE-UP.html
