On becoming an innovative university teacher : reflection in action by John Cowan( Book )

15 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 530 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
Teaching for quality learning at university : what the student does by John B Biggs( Book )

24 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Teaching for Quality Learning at University" focuses on implementing a constructively aligned outcomes-based model at both classroom and institutional level. The theory, which is now used worldwide as a framework for good teaching and assessment, is shown to: assist university teachers who wish to improve the quality of their own teaching, their students' learning and their assessment of learning outcomes; aid staff developers in providing support for teachers; and, provide a framework for administrators interested in quality assurance and enhancement of teaching across the whole university. The book's "how to" approach addresses several important issues: designing high level outcomes, the learning activities most likely to achieve them in small and large classes, and appropriate assessment and grading procedures. It is an accessible, jargon-free guide to all university teachers interested in enhancing their teaching and their students' learning, and for administrators and teaching developers who are involved in teaching-related decisions on an institution-wide basis. The authors have also included useful web links to further material
Foundations of problem-based learning by Maggi Savin-Baden( Book )

14 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book closes a gap in the PBL literature. It is a thoroughly researched, well documented and engagingly written three part harmony addressing conceptual frames, recurring themes, and broadening horizons. An essential addition to your library"--Professor Karl A. Smith, University of Minnesota. "A comprehensive guide for those new to PBL, and suitable for those new to teaching or for the more experienced looking for a new challenge' - Dr Liz Beaty, Director (Learning and Teaching), HEFCE. 'This book vividly articulates the key ideas of PBL and provides new PBL practitioners with key guiding posts for its implementation. It is an excellent contribution to the art of using PBL' - Associate Professor Oon-Seng Tan, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. What is problem-based learning? How can it be used in teaching? How does problem-based learning affect staff and students? How do we assess and evaluate it? Despite the growth in the use of problem-based learning since it was first popularised, there have been no resources to examine the foundations of the approach and offer straightforward guidance to those wishing to explore, understand, and implement it. This book describes the theoretical foundations of problem-based learning and is a practical source for staff wanting to implement it. The book is designed as a text that not only explores the foundations of problem-based learning but also answers many of the frequently-asked questions about its use. It develops readers understanding beyond implementation, including issues such as academic development, cultural, diversity, assessment, evaluation and curricular models of problem-based learning. "Foundations of Problem-based Learning" is a vital resource for lecturers in all disciplines who want to understand problem-based learning and implement it effectively in their teaching

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

11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 183 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

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

11 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 136 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

"Drawing on both quantitative and qualitative data, the book focuses on the diversity in doctoral study.

Higher education pedagogies : a capabilities approach by Melanie Walker( Book )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book sets out to generate new ways of reflecting ethically about the purposes and values of contemporary higher education in relation to agency, learning, public values and democratic life, and the pedagogies which support these. It offers an alternative to human capital theory and emphasises the intrinsic as well as the economic value of higher learning. Based upon the human capability approach, developed by economist Amartya Sen and philosopher Martha Nussbaum, the book shows the importance of justice as a value in higher education."--Jacket

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

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 2 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
