About - Journal of Learning Development in Higher Education


The Journal of Learning Development in Higher Education (JLDHE) is aimed at those interested in all aspects of how learning is facilitated and how it is experienced by students in higher education, in the UK and internationally. We welcome submissions that explore how students learn, succeed in, and make sense of higher education through original research, reviews and commentary on topics that include (and are not limited to):

  • Student learning and development
  • Equality, diversity and inclusion in education 
  • Teaching and learning methodologies
  • Curriculum and programme design 
  • Technology in education, including the impact of generative AI
  • Assessment and evaluation
  • Learning Development practices and pedagogies
  • Learning Development structures and management
  • Student engagement and success 

JLDHE aims to reflect the diverse perspectives and voices of the higher education community, including those of marginalised and underrepresented groups, and to support new and established writers in making a valuable contribution to scholarship. As a publication with an international audience, we look for contributions that provide context for and transferability of the practices and theories explored.

JLDHE is published by the Association for Learning Development in Higher Education (ALDinHE). The Journal recognises Learning Development as a distinct, impact-rich field of knowledge and practice in the area of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning characterised by five key values. Further details are available on the Association’s website

We are indexed by the DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals) and Google Scholar, as well as linked to CrossRef.

It is also included in the Society for Research into Higher Education publications: Research into Higher Education Abstracts and Educational Research Abstracts.
