- Publisher's Summary
- The Handbook is sensitive to the competing demands of teaching, research and scholarship, academic management. Against the contexts, the book focuses on developing professional academic skills for teaching. Dealing with the rapid expansion of the use of technology in higher education and widening student diversity, the fully updated and expanded edition includes new material on for example, e-learning, lecturing to large groups, formative and summative assessment, and supervising research students.Part 1 examines teaching and supervising in higher education, focusing on a range of approaches and contexts. Part 2 examines teaching in discipline-specific areas and includes new chapters on engineering, economics , law and the creative and performing arts. Part 3 considers approaches to demonstrating and enhancing practice. Written to support the excellence in teaching required to bring about 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 all those experienced lecturers who wish to improve their teaching. Those working in adult learning and education development will find it a particularly useful resource.
