This special section contains a selection of articles that were presented as papers at the Higher Education Learning and Teaching Association of Southern Africa (HELTASA) Conference, which was held from 28-30 November 2012 and hosted by Stellenbosch University. The conference, one of the largest in the HELTASA series, attracted 539 delegates and spanned 12 parallel sessions with 264 presentations. The conference theme was: Higher education that matters to society that matters to higher education and the conference logo presented the theme in a circular fashion, graphically illustrating the ongoing relationship between society and higher education. In his welcome message, then rector and vice-chancellor of Stellenbosch University, Professor Russel Botman, commented on how the conference theme drew higher education and society into a circular relationship, and how the message binding them was that higher education and society need to matter to each other.
