This book brings together a collection of ground-breaking research and tested techniques in the field of learning and teaching in higher education.

It provides an accessible, authoritative account of the latest developments, outlining how to apply learning theory and best practice to everyday teaching and providing advice on overcoming problems of implementation.

Evidence is drawn from funded projects and innovative practitioners from a wide range of disciplines and backgrounds and covers areas including approaches to learning, working with students, enhancing the progress and development of students and supporting and developing your own practice.

Industry Reviews

'In less than 200 page, the twenty contributors have certainly managed to encompass a remarkably wide range of topical issues and to suggest a host of approaches that are immediately applicable in on- and/or off-campus learning environments...Busy lecturers keen to re-consider, re-evaluate and improve their teaching will find much to reward them in this book.' -Colin Latchem, British Journal of Educational Technology, May 2005
