'This book argues for educational enquiry as a way to invigorate academic teaching and student learning. It takes the individual academic’s point of view as it shows how educational enquiry starts in the discipline and evolves further into an invitation for students to participate. It is important, inspiring and useful.'
'This is a comprehensive and important volume. Disciplinary-focussed chapters can be read as stand alone pieces, but when combined with the introductory material in Part 1, the result is one of both breadth and depth of insight into the principles and practices of educational enquiry in a HE setting. It will be particularly useful for those starting out in discipline-based educational research, those moving into this area and those charged with supporting or leading this vital form of scholarship.'
'For all academics who care about their own teaching and who want to engage students fully, this book will be invaluable. The authors show how it's possible to draw on the special culture of one's own subject discipline to enhance education in ways which benefit staff as well as students. Make this the first book on your reading list.'
'Teaching and Learning in Higher Education explores an exciting new development in higher education: educational enquiry as an approach to improving teaching and informing pedagogical and curricular design. As this welcome guide attractively illustrates and clearly explains, educational enquiry is not just for education researchers and social scientists, but can be undertaken by academics in any discipline through methods that are a good ³fit² for their own fields. For readers who want to know why and how to get started, this is your book!'
Focus on Educational Enquiry Chapters which deal with individual dicsiplines relevant to this University. However there is no chapter relating to the discipline of Education.
Although this book was useful it did not meet all the needs of the course
Insightful and very helpful.
This book supports our core reading material
A really useful book for current contexts where co-production across the academy is encouraged. Helps build research bridges between academic areas enabling the development of better practice. The overview of research methodology and dissemination, along with case studies of actual research projects really support understanding of how to carry out educational enquiry in practice.
Provide background information for my students.
We will use and refer to chapter 1 to 9 in our teaching as the the texts in the book is right to the point as regards to bridging educational enquiry onto the subjects represented in our course. However, since our courses are tailored to math and science teaching, we need to include reading suitable for chemistry, biology, geology as well and since the matter of educational enquiry makes upp for one of three themes in the course, the whole book would make up for too big a part of the total course reading.
An interesting and informative book for both students and new lecturers.
Very useful text, good advise and guidence.
The book offers a useful introduction to getting started with educational research or inquiry. This term might also be known as scholarship of teaching and learning or practitioner research but the authors opt for the term educational inquiry to refer to research into individual teaching and learning in higher education. Appropriate not only for staff engaged in teacher education programmes but for anyone interested in taking on a deeper investigation into the teaching of their own subject and Part Two includes a helpful range of subject discipline approaches.
This is an excellent text for the PGC Academic Practice as it gives insights into the L&T practices of different disciplines.
Valuable for teachers new to HE and those developing and adapting their skills to engage students further.
This is a good book in helping to orientate students around a confusing array of literature within educational inquiry.
