I am a member of the Higher Education Teaching & Learning (HETL) discussion group on LinkedIn. It has nearly 30,000 members. There is an associated formal academic group which supports two journals and a series of books.
The international membership of discussion group provides multiple perspectives to interesting topics. I endorse it, and encourage all accounting professors to join both the discussion group and the organization.
Earlier tonight I received the following announcement from Patrick Blessinger:
Subject: HETL Selects New President for 2013-2104
Other new board members include Dr. Agata Stachowicz-Stanusch, Poland; Dr. Lesley Diack, UK; Dr. Dorothy Mpabanga, Botswana; Dr. Lorraine Stefani, New Zealand; and Dr. Evon Walters, USA. See https://www.hetl.org/leadership/
Our outgoing President, Dr. Charles Wankel, USA, implemented several new programs while serving as president during the 2012-2013 year. Under Dr. Wankel’s exemplary leadership, HETL created the Liaison group and added over 100 new liaisons from around the world; Dr. Wankel also served as the program co-chair for HETL’s inaugural conference, along with Melody Bowdon; and he co-edited several volumes on increasing student engagement and retention – https://www.hetl.org/hetl-books/

Congratulations to Charles Wankel for a job very well done as president of HETL. In one of his actions, I was appointed as HETL liaison to the accounting discipline.
Patrick Blessinger and Charles Wankel are true giants of the academic world. We are fortunate to benefit from their leadership in HETL. I don’t know John Anchan, but I have every confidence he will grow HETL into an even more effective academic organization.
