Learning spaces : creating opportunities for knowledge creation in academic life by Maggi Savin-Baden( )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,725 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Learning Spaces sets out to challenge the notion that academic thinking cannot take place in cramped, busy working spaces, and argues instead for a need to recognise and promote new opportunities for learning spaces to emerge in academic life. The book examines the ideas that: learning spaces are increasingly absent in academic life; the creation and re-creation of learning spaces is vital for the survival of the academic community; the absence of learning spaces is resulting in increasing dissolution and fragmentation of academic identities; and learning spaces need to be valued and possibly redefined in order to regain and maintain the intellectual health of academe."--Jacket
On becoming an innovative university teacher : reflection in action by John Cowan( )

15 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 1,682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This unusual book begins each chapter by posing a question with which college and university teachers can be expected to identify; and then goes on to answer the question by presenting a series of examples; finally, each chapter closes with 'second thoughts', presenting a viewpoint somewhat distinct from that taken by John Cowan. This book will assist university teachers to plan and run innovative activities to enable their students to engage in effective reflective learning; it will help them adapt other teachers' work for use with their own students; and will give them a rationale for the place of reflective teaching and learning in higher education."--Jacket

Gender and the changing face of higher education : a feminized future? by Carole Leathwood( )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A notable feature of higher education in many countries over the last few decades has been the dramatic rise in the proportion of female students. Women now outnumber men as undergraduate students in the majority of OECD countries, fuelling concerns that men are deserting degree-level study as women overtake them both numerically and in terms of levels of achievement. The assertion is that higher education is becoming increasingly 'feminized' reflecting similar claims in relation to schooling and the labour market. At the same time, there are persistent concerns about degree standards, with allegations of 'dumbing down'. This raises questions about whether the higher education system to which more women have gained access is now of less value, both intrinsically and in terms of labour market outcomes, than previously." "Drawing on international and national data, theory and research, Gender and the Changing Face of Higher Education provides an accessible but nuanced discussion of the 'feminization' of higher education for postgraduates, policy-makers and academics working in the field."--Jacket

Flexible higher education : international pioneers reflect by Elizabeth J Burge( )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This unique book analyzes the work of over forty pioneers who helped drive key late twentieth century changes in access to, and learning in, higher education, via distance education. It examines how they defined their challenges, made decisions, coped with traditionalist resistance, developed new teaching and learning models, used various technologies, felt the excitement of innovation, and, above all, respected adult learners' goals and contexts." "The book also assesses the relevance of that experience and skill to today's contexts. Seven international leaders in adult, distance and higher education assess the pioneers' reflections to glean the ideas of most relevance for contemporary teachers and administrators."--Jacket
Teaching for quality learning at university : what the student does by John B Biggs( )

25 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 1,363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Biggs tackles how academics can improve their teaching in today's circumstances of large classes and diverse student populations. His approach is practical but not prescriptive. Teachers need to make decisions on teaching and assessment methods to suit their own circumstances. In order to do that they need a conceptual framework to inform their decision-making. Such a framework is clearly described and exemplified by this book. University teachers can readily adapt the ideas here to their own subjects and teaching conditions."--Jacket
