Abstract

This book explores ways in which pedagogical research, theory, models and frameworks can be used pragmatically to enhance teaching practice in higher education. It provides practical strategies, ideas, techniques and approaches drawn from literature and real-life experience, using examples from a variety of disciplines.

Cross-cutting themes include developing resilience and care for ourselves, our colleagues and our students, engaging with diversity in teaching and promoting dialogue and enquiry. It also addresses the dimensions of the UK Professional Standards Framework.

This is essential reading for lecturers on Higher Education Academy-accredited programmes, such as PGCTLHE, PGCAP, PG Cert HE, and for staff seeking HEA fellowship through experience-based routes, or who wish to develop more scholarly approaches to their practice.

Item Type: Book
Additional Information: 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 world Ron Barnett, Emeritus Professor of Higher Education Institute of Education, University College London
