About the Book Review Corner
Welcome to WIHEA's Book Review Corner, a space where WHEA Fellows and Alumni share their opinions on a range of educational related publications to help you decide on the next worthy addition to your physical or virtual library. We offer this opportunity for Fellows and Alumni that are interested to review a book linked to Higher Education and commit to producing a short review in a format of your choice (short 5 minute video, written review or podcast).
How to take part?
To take part please submit the title/author of a book you would like to review or suggest a topic/area of interest and we will select a book for you. We will then arrange for a copy of the book to be delivered to you and look forward to receiving your review which will be published on our web page. *Please note: we are currently only accepting reviews from WIHEA Fellows and Alumni.
Please submit the above information using our short online form.
If you would like to take part but would like some inspiration of topics or titles to review, please also see the bottom of this page for a selection of suggested titles.
