UQ has partnered with Times Higher Education (THE) on a new initiative, THE Campus, which presents opportunities for colleagues across UQ to publish advice resources to a global community of higher education professionals.

What is THE Campus?

THE Campus logo

THE Campus is a knowledge sharing and peer-to-peer support platform providing quality, curated resources from academics around the world.

THE Campus – based in the UK – was created as a response to the global pandemic and the need for more peer-to-peer support when it comes to online teaching and learning and digital delivery.

  To unlock all content, you’ll need to register on their website (it’s free).


  1. An opportunity to publish content (articles or videos) via a world-leading higher ed website receiving nearly three million unique visitors a month, as well as UQ eSpace.
  2. Promotion of your content via THE networks including regular newsletters (20,000+ contacts) and social channels.
  3. Invitation to participate in webinars and podcasts.
  4. Access to a global community of experts where you can comment on and rate resources, bookmark articles and build your network.
  5. Access to a space where you can showcase your innovative work and gain recognition.


Besides specific calls for Spotlights and other series, THE Campus editorial team welcomes content on:
