Product Description

Review

This book, aimed at early career academic staff, has contributions from 21 experts. I had initial concerns that the ‘too many cooks’ adage would apply but they quickly disappeared: the editors have produced a clearly structured text that has been shaped into a coherent, consistent whole...The individual chapters could be read in isolation and are of a manageable length. This flexibility also makes the book a valuable resource for more experienced academics. For this reason, I intend to keep my copy, which already has a fine collection of sticky notes attached, within easy reach for the foreseeable future.

Product Description

University Teaching in Focus provides a foundational springboard for early career academics preparing to teach in universities. Focusing on four critical areas - teaching, curriculum, students, and quality/leadership - this succinct resource offers university teachers a straightforward approach to facilitating effective student learning. The book empowers university teachers and contributes to their career success by developing teaching skills, strategies, and knowledge, as well as linking theory to practice. Written in a clear and accessible style by internationally acclaimed experts, topics include: learning theories, assessment, discipline-based teaching, curriculum design, problem-based and work-integrated learning, effective classroom teaching, and flexible modes of delivery. The needs of diverse student groups are explored and the scholarship of teaching and learning is addressed within a quality and leadership framework. The book also makes reference to seminal works and current resources. Real-world cases illuminate the theoretical content and 'Your Thoughts' sections encourage reflection and adaptation to local contexts. University Teaching in Focus explores ways that teachers can effectively engage students in life-long learning, extending their capacity to solve problems, to enter the workforce, to understand their discipline, and to interact positively with others in a global community throughout their professional lives.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a good book for both the newer teacher or lecturer in higher education and the slightly older, like me, who wants to keep up to date with current ideas and trends. It is well written, much of what it says is evidenced and it makes interesting use of a number of interesting case studies to illustrate the points it makes. Rather than a book to start with I think that it pulls together a number of issues that have been debated for long periods of time. I particularly liked the chapter on designing subjects for learning as this helped me in an aspect of my own current practice.
