Everything you wanted to know about ways of improving teaching and learning, but might have been too reluctant to enquire into. Each chapter addresses a key aspect, is taut and accessible to busy practitioners, and its main points easily understood. Large literatures are opened invitingly to the reader and are assimilated with ease. Helen Pokorny and Digby Warren have demonstrated just how helpful good editing can be. I recommend this book wholeheartedly. It should become a staple on courses for lecturers in universities and will be valuable right across the English-speaking wor
Enhancing teaching practice in higher education provides a timely collection of chapters covering the key topics new and existing lecturers and learning support staff need to understand to find their way through the rapidly changing HE landscape. This scholarly volume provides an informative, practical and readable guide to the professionalisation of teaching and learning in higher education. I highly recommend it.
This book offers an excellent overview of the areas of activity, knowledge and values that are important for all teachers in higher education. Each of the chapters articulate forms of learning that are interactive, engaging and inclusive of the diversity of learners encountered in higher education today. The authors have blended theoretical underpinnings, highly practical approaches and the use of insightful questions throughout the text, to create a highly thoughtful and useful guide for staff.
This book is a valuable resource for anyone concerned with academic professional development in the changing landscape of higher education. The chapters provide considered and reflective explorations into what it means to both teach and learn at university, rather than simply offering a ‘how to do it’ approach. In so doing, the volume challenges HE educators to take a fresh approach to their own professional values.
I am delighted to offer an endorsement for this volume which I think makes a significant and powerful contribution to the literature in the field. This timely book contains a wealth of practical advice while being soundly research informed and evidence-based. At a time when globally Higher Education Institutions are seeking ways to recognise and reward teaching excellence, this book is invaluable.
Enhancing Teaching Practice in Higher Education, is a text that all lecturers and professors will find useful. It is heavily UK-centric in how it discusses policy and legislative developments...provides support and encouragement to Higher Education teachers at all stages of their careers.
It is both philosophical and practical. It also offers guidance for early career academics and those who are more experienced...Overall, the book's potential rests in the fact that it does not offer solutions without first engaging the reader in reviewing their practice. Each chapter is a rich resource with direction to useful websites and further reading. I recommend it.
This insightful book is a welcome addition to the educational practice library. It should be of value to PG Certificates students and individuals preparing for HEA Fellowship. But it is capable of wider use too. I imagine chapters, or sub-sections thereof, forming the focus for debate amongst staff, and with students, to facilitate reflection on practice, enabling its enhancement. Each chapter is a rich resource with direction to useful websites and further reading. I recommend it.
An essential resource for those intending to inform and develop teaching and learning in HE. Highly Recommended.
Excellent guide with a welcomed honesty re contemporary education practice at HE.
This book provides practical strategies and ideas drawn from real life situations that can be used to enhance teaching within HE. The use of distinct chapters covering specific topics makes the book accessible, easy to understand, and navigate. A valuable resource for the trainee and experienced teacher alike.
This book clearly links effective teaching methods into a higher education context. However, a lot of the tips are methods that have been previously cited in other teaching practice books for lower levels and I have not really found the 'creativity' new to inspire me to recommend students pay the high price for this volume.. It does encourage me that I am using correct techniques already. The first chapter was useful to bring together current policy development.
Key issues are addressed in each chapter. Each key aspect is present in a easily understood format.
A great 'dip into' text that challenges thinking and has direct links to teaching practice
