New Innovations in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education

New Innovations in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (2017) - Anne Hørsted - Paul Bartholomew - John Branch - Claus Nygaard - Clive Holtham - Institute for Learning in Higher Education - Libri Publishing Ltd

New Innovations in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education presents primary examples of innovative teaching and learning practices in higher education. The authors – scholars of teaching and learning from universities across the globe – all share the ambition to develop educational provisions to become much more learning-centred. Such learning-centredness is key to quality enhancement of contemporary higher education and may be achieved with a variety of methods. The chapters document innovative teaching and learning practices within six areas:

Engaging Students through Practice – Student-Centred e-Learning – Technology for Learning – Simulation – Effective Transformation – Curriculum Innovations

The book is truly international, containing contributions from Australia, Denmark, England, Hong Kong, Switzerland, Qatar, Scotland, South Africa, Tasmania, Vietnam, and the USA. Although the educational contexts are very different across these countries, there appears to be a striking similarity in the approach to innovative teaching and learning – a similarity which also runs through the six areas of the book. Whether scholars of teaching and learning engage in simulations, e-learning, transformation or use of modern technologies, they work to empower students.
