"Changing Higher Education" seeks to make to make sense of the many changes that have taken place in learning and teaching in higher education and offers insights into where teaching and learning might be moving in the future.
Acknowledging the vital influence of Lewis Elton, leading researchers in the field examine and reflect on different aspects of changes to teaching. Focusing on five key areas, they:
- Outline changes in higher education and ways of thinking about teaching and learning that have occurred over the last thirty years
- Inspect the development of students' learning in higher education
- Examine the development of learning technologies in higher education
- Consider accreditation and scholarship of teaching and learning in higher education.
- Develop a framework through which to understand and question the future development of learning and teaching in higher education
"Changing Higher Education" provides an in-depth analysis of the changes in learning and teaching that have taken place over the last thirty years. It offers staff and educational developers and those studying postgraduate qualifications in learning and teaching higher education an insightful framework through which to understand and question current and future developments in learning and teaching in higher education.

'A book well worth taking the time to read.' - British Journal of Educational Technology

'The recognition of change and the changing context in higher education makes the work appealing to both new faculty members and more experienced staff and may help to bring about a more effective community of enquiry in terms of learning and teaching in the sector.' - ESCalate
