Book Description :

This entirely new edition of a very successful book focuses on developing professional academic skills for supporting and supervising student learning and effective teaching. It is built on the premise that the roles of those who teach in higher education are complex and multi-faceted. A Handbook for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education is sensitive to the competing demands of teaching, research, scholarship, and academic management. The new edition reflects and responds to the rapidly changing context of higher education and to current understanding of how to best support student learning. Drawing together a large number of expert authors, it continues to feature extensive use of case studies that show how successful teachers have implemented these ideas. It includes key topics such as student engagement and motivation, internationalisation, employability, inclusive strategies for teaching, effective use of technology and issues relating to postgraduate students and student retention. Part 1 explores a number of aspects of the context of UK higher education that affect the education of students, looking at the drivers of institutional behaviours and how to achieve success as a university teacher. Part 2 examines learning, teaching and supervising in higher education and includes chapters on working with diversity, encouraging independent learning and learning gain. Part 3 considers approaches to teaching and learning in different disciplines, covering a full range including arts and humanities, social sciences, experimental sciences through to medicine and dentistry. Written to support the excellence in teaching and learning design required to bring about student learning of the highest quality, this will be essential reading for all new lecturers, particularly anyone taking an accredited course in teaching and learning in higher education, as well as those experienced lecturers who wish to improve their teaching practice. Those working in adult learning and educational development will also find the book to be a particularly useful resource. In addition it will appeal to staff who support learning and teaching in various other roles.

Book Description :

This book is the first to explore the big question of how assessment can be refreshed and redesigned in an evolving digital landscape. There are many exciting possibilities for assessments that contribute dynamically to learning. However, the interface between assessment and technology is limited. Often, assessment designers do not take advantage of digital opportunities. Equally, digital innovators sometimes draw from models of higher education assessment that are no longer best practice. This gap in thinking presents an opportunity to consider how technology might best contribute to mainstream assessment practice. Internationally recognised experts provide a deep and unique consideration of assessment’s contribution to the technology-mediated higher education sector. The treatment of assessment is contemporary and spans notions of ‘assessment for learning’, measurement and the roles of peer and self within assessment. Likewise the view of educational technology is broad and includes gaming, learning analytics and new media. The intersection of these two worlds provides opportunities, dilemmas and exemplars. This book serves as a reference for best practice and also guides future thinking about new ways of conceptualising, designing and implementing assessment.

Book Description :

The use of technology and teaching techniques derived from technology is currently a bourgeoning topic in higher education. Teachers at all levels and types of institutions want to know how these new technologies will affect what happens in and outside of the classroom. Many teachers have already embraced some of these technologies but remain uncertain about their educational efficacy. Other teachers have waited because they are reluctant to try tools or techniques that remain unproven or, as is often the case, lack institutional support. This book is designed to help both groups, so that those with technological expertise can extend their knowledge, while technological novices can "ramp up" at their own pace and for their own purposes. Best Practices for Technology-Enhanced Teaching and Learning brings together expert teacher-scholars who apply and assess technology's impact on traditional, hybrid or blended, or completely on-line courses, relying on technology as a teaching tool for classroom management and interaction (e.g., Blackboard, PowerPoint, student response or "clicker systems," multimedia tools), as well as student-based uses of technology largely independent of instructors (e.g., social networking on popular sites including Facebook and MySpace). Each chapter will address how technological improvements can be connected to assessment initiatives, as is now routinely advocated in psychology and social science education. The book features current scholarship and pedagogy involving innovative technology that impacts on student learning in psychology and related disciplines, focusing also on student reactions to these novel technologies, and proper assessments of how well they promote learning. This text will serve as the standard reference on emerging technologies for undergraduate instructors.

Book Description :

Student-scientist-teacher interactions provide students with several advantages. They provide opportunities to interact with experts and professionals in the field, give students a chance at meeting a role model that may impact students' career choices, and increase awareness of available career options combined with an understanding of how their skills and interests affect their career decisions. Additionally, it enhances attitudes and interest toward STEM professions for students and grants opportunities to connect with scientists as human beings and see them as "real people," replacing stereotypical perceptions of scientists. Moreover, there are many advantages for the teacher or informal educator when these partnerships are established. For these reasons and more, numerous studies are often conducted involving the partnerships of students, scientists, and teachers. Enhancing Learning Opportunities Through Student, Scientist, and Teacher Partnerships organizes a collection of research on student-scientist-teacher partnerships and presents the models, benefits, implementation, and learning outcomes of these interactions. This book presents a variety of different scientist-student-teacher partnerships with research data to support different learning outcomes in settings like schools, after-school programs, museums, science centers, zoos, aquariums, children's museums, space centers, nature centers, and more. This book is ideal for in-service and preservice teachers, administrators, teacher educators, practitioners, stakeholders, researchers, academicians, and students interested in research on beneficial student-scientist-teacher partnerships/models in formal and informal settings.

Book Description :

Economic, academic, and social forces are causing undergraduate schools to start a fresh examination of teaching effectiveness. Administrators face the complex task of developing equitable, predictable ways to evaluate, encourage, and reward good teaching in science, math, engineering, and technology. Evaluating, and Improving Undergraduate Teaching in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics offers a vision for systematic evaluation of teaching practices and academic programs, with recommendations to the various stakeholders in higher education about how to achieve change. What is good undergraduate teaching? This book discusses how to evaluate undergraduate teaching of science, mathematics, engineering, and technology and what characterizes effective teaching in these fields. Why has it been difficult for colleges and universities to address the question of teaching effectiveness? The committee explores the implications of differences between the research and teaching cultures-and how practices in rewarding researchers could be transferred to the teaching enterprise. How should administrators approach the evaluation of individual faculty members? And how should evaluation results be used? The committee discusses methodologies, offers practical guidelines, and points out pitfalls. Evaluating, and Improving Undergraduate Teaching in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics provides a blueprint for institutions ready to build effective evaluation programs for teaching in science fields.

Book Description :

This book is a comprehensive yet accessible introduction to learning and teaching in higher education, and an invaluable resource if you are seeking to enhance and develop your teaching in the context of the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF). It also supports your progress towards Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (HEA), with an overview of the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF) and linking content to the framework. This book is for new and existing teachers in higher education and those teaching higher education programmes in further education colleges. As well as helping you enhance and extend your understanding of the theory and practice of learning and teaching, this book encourages you to reflect on and improve your teaching in higher education to meet the needs of a diversity of students in the changing landscape of higher education. Together with its progressive and logical sequencing of topics - covering planning and preparation; techniques, methods and resources; assessment, quality and evaluation - the book provides: • A core text and resource for new teachers in higher education undertaking postgraduate programmes in learning and teaching. • An accessible and practical introduction to the knowledge and skills required to become a confident and effective lecturer in higher education • Mapping to the HEA UK Professional Standards Framework to provide guidance and support for those working towards Fellowship of the HEA together with sample Fellowship applications • 'Pause & Reflect' boxes to reinforce your professional learning journey "This book is not only an excellent introduction to learning and teaching in university but also for those providing higher level learning in further education colleges. It is an ideal companion for lecturers and teachers undertaking postgraduate programmes in learning and teaching and also for those seeking Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy. The core message of the book is that improving teaching, learning and quality begins with teachers themselves through their own professionalism, scholarship and reflective practice." Vicky Duckworth, Reader in Education, Edge Hill University, UK "Pete Scales begins his book by asking the question ‘What is teaching?’ and giving possible answers and raising further questions. This sets the tone for his approach in this wide-ranging almost encyclopaedic book that touches on all the topics and issues that someone new to higher education is required to address. But this introductory book is unique because Scales never loses what is his professional passion and his authorial focus - the relationship between the teacher and the student. All education is founded on the relationship between a teacher and a student and Scales provides a guide for the new higher education teacher through the confusing and confused world of higher education in order that they can remain a teacher despite institutional distractions." Dennis Hayes, Professor of Education, University of Derby, UK "This book provides a welcome and timely addition which will be of huge value to anybody with an interest in teaching and learning in higher education. It will be of particular value to those new to teaching in the higher education sector as well as more experienced staff who wish to update their skills or apply for Higher Education Academy recognition." Chris Wakeman, Head of Education and Inclusion Studies, University of Wolverhampton, UK "Explicit links to specific elements of each dimension of the UK Professional Standards Framework make this text invaluable to those producing evidence for taught routes to HEA fellowship or associate fellowship, and for those embarking on applications for FHEA based on CPD and experience. It gives good guidance to alignment of each element of the UKPSF dimensions with personal professional experiences. Peter Scales shares my dislike for the word ‘delivery’ to describe teaching and clearly explains why! The text is passionate,"readable and engaging with a logical presentation of the lived experiences of teaching in higher education.” Beverley Hale, Professor of Learning and Teaching, University of Chichester, UK

Book Description :

This book addresses the need to diversify mainstream forms of assessment currently used in Higher Education in order to re-establish the focus on the learning process. Making assessment central to student learning is about returning to what current research emphasises: the primary beneficiary of assessment should be the student. To achieve this in the assessment context, students and tutors must engage in a process of dialogue and feedback. It seems to be widely accepted that assessment succeeds when the learner monitors, identifies and then is able to ‘bridge’ the gap between current learning achievements and agreed goals. It is, however, more questionable whether adequate opportunities are given to students to be active participants in closing what has been termed ‘the loop’. Contributors to this book have responded in different ways to the challenge of enhancing learning through assessment, offering reasons for the lack of focus on learning within assessment processes as well as suggesting possible solutions. The chapters demonstrate a balance between innovation and practicality, drawing on the underpinning theories. The result is both rich in discussion and an extremely useful resource for practitioners. This book was originally published as a special issue of Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education.
