About this book

This book acts as a highly practical guide for new and experienced lecturers, learning supporters and leaders in Higher Education; and offers plentiful examples and vignettes showing how learning can be brought to life through activity and engagement. It offers numerous pragmatic illustrations of how to design and deliver an engaging curriculum, and assess students’ learning authentically. Sound scholarship and research-informed approaches to Higher Education teaching and learning underpins the myriad accessible and readily recognizable examples of how real educators solve the challenges of contemporary Higher Education. Additionally, guidance is offered on how to present evidence for those seeking accreditation of their teaching and leadership in Higher Education, as well as useful advice for experienced HE teachers seeking to advance their careers into more senior roles, on the basis of their strong teaching and pedagogic leadership. The book will be of great interest to students and researchers working in Education, and will be invaluable reading for both new and experienced lecturers working in HE institutions.
