(Ronald Barnett 2009-01-20)

Synopsis:

Praise for the first edition: 'For too long we have waited for a book that brings together the best contemporary thinking about learning and teaching and that connects with academics' everyday teaching practice in an engaging way. At last, in this book, we have it' - Ronald Barnett, Institute of Education, University of London. Around the world, higher education services are challenged by increased numbers and diversity of students, tougher demands for professional accountability, increasing calls for educational relevance and thinning resources. This new edition addresses key issues in the practice and theory of teaching and learning in the sector and includes updated and revised discussions of: the professional in academic practice; mentoring; teaching with technology; the relationship between learning objectives, outcomes and assessment; and, the novice teacher.The authors draw upon theory, practice and current research to provide a new way of thinking about the many aspects of learning and teaching in higher education, enabling the reader to critically reflect upon their teaching.

They also propose a model for developing, conducting and producing evidence for continuous professional development appropriate to the higher education academic community. "Learning and Teaching in Higher Education: The Reflective Professional" is intended for lecturers, researchers, staff developers and others providing and/or supporting teaching in higher and professional education.
