AUAS: The High Education Conference - Exploring the research-teaching-praxis nexus

After a successful first edition in 2016, the newest edition of the Higher Education Research Conference (HEC) will be held on 28th and 29th October 2019 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. This conference is organised in collaboration with the higher education division of the Netherlands Educational Research Association.

Conference theme

The research-teaching-practice triangle considers an equal link between these components within higher education (Kaplan, 1989). Higher education has a central role in educating future professionals. For that reason, a holistic framework must be offered with regard to linking research, education and professional practice. However, the literature shows a gap between these components, in particular between research and its application in practice (Grosu, Almăşan & Circa, 2015).

We want to invite researchers, educationalists, policy makers, industry experts and colleagues from the professional world to exchange ideas about the relationship between research, education and practice.


Knowledge, skills and the future of Higher Education
Prof. dr. Michael Young
