Welcome to ALDinHE

Welcome to the website of the Association for Learning Development in Higher Education.

ALDinHE is the membership association for staff who work as Learning Developers, or have a role which involves supporting student learning. Learning Developers share a common desire to empower students in their learning through helping them make sense of academic practices within higher education and supporting them to acquire the generic underpinning skills for the environments in which they are working.
