Teachers in higher education have had to become more professional in their approach to teaching, matching their professionalism in research. The first edition of this book prepares teachers to do and undergo quality audits and appraisals, and to achieve their personal aims of improving their teaching and their students' learning. The strength of this book is that it provides a sound theoretical basis for designing and using learning technologies in university teaching. This new edition builds upon the success of the first and contains major updates to the information on learning technologies and includes the implications of using technology for the university context - both campus and electronic - which suggests a new approach to managing learning at institutional level.

Handy und fragmentierte Kulturen der Lebensstile sind normale Wirklichkeit. Vertraute Kulturen haben ihre Bindungskraft verloren, neue Medien-Kulturen setzen Kindern und Jugendlichen unklare und dennoch prägende Strukturen für die Entwicklung ihrer Kompetenzen. Wie kann man als Pädagoge in der widersprüchlichen Veränderung unserer Kultur eine Linie finden, um Kindern und Jugendlichen Teilhabe an der neuen und alten Medien-Kultur und eben auch einer eigenständigen Entwicklung zu ermöglichen? In der deutsch- und englischsprachigen Diskussion beginnen sich aktuell Analysen und praktische Vorschläge zu ordnen. Als ein Leitgedanke zeichnet sich Literalität als Teilhabe an unserer Kultur und deren widersprüchlicher Medienvielfalt ab.

This book focuses on dilemmas inherent in the practice of assessment in the contemporary context. New forms of assessment are being introduced in all sectors of education and training, and the culture of assessment is shifting. The authors in this volume discuss the practice of assessment, reporting empirical research on modes of assessment within a variety of educational contexts, while also addressing conceptual and theoretical aspects of assessment. Though most publications on assessment do not go beyond one sector or phase of education and only consider assessment in one national context, this volume is cross-sectoral and international in scope. This groundbreaking book illustrates the conceptual and practical dilemmas of assessment and raises issues that are relevant and applicable across a variety of modes of assessment and across various contexts where assessment takes place.

Blended learning is firmly established in universities around the world, yet to date little attention has been paid to how students are enaging with this style of learning. Presenting a theoretically-based and empirically-validated model of engagement, this book examines the application of the model to improve the quality and productivity of university education. Covering the key qualities of blended learning, it analyses how online learning influences campus-based education, develops the student perspective of online learning, examines online learning systems as agents of change, provides insights and guidance for educational developers and administrators attempting to improve quality of learning, and considers how institutions can maximise educational returns from large investments in online learning technologies. Illustrated with case studies and developing ideas for practice, this book will be valuable reading for researchers and developers keen to improve their understanding of the emerging dynamics of contemporary student engagement with online learning.

Narrative Ecologies: Teachers as Pedagogical Toolmakers

In recent years there has been significant investment by policy makers in the potential of technological tools to transform learning and teaching across a range of professional practitioner groups; education, nursing and social care. There remain, however, outstanding issues concerning the ways educators and professional practitioners harness the potential of technologies to innovate and develop pedagogical practice. With so much attention focusing on technologies themselves, the complexity of what it takes for practitioners to innovate and develop their own pedagogical practice can easily be overlooked. This book promotes a teacher-centred model of professional development and practice; a model that promotes teachers as active agents as they draw upon a range of factors within a narrative ecology framework to inform their development of pedagogical tools. The combination of narrative methodologies with ecological theories offers a much more nuanced view of teachers’ professional learning, and Turvey provides an innovative methodological approach to narrative research, supported by an empirical evidence base which crosses educational and socio-cultural contexts. Chapters cover: -Teachers as pedagogical toolmakers -A teacher-centred narrative ecology -Storying teachers’ experiences: what can we learn? The narrative ecologies that emerge in this book suggest an incremental process of pedagogical change and development, driven by teachers at the heart of the process. This book will be key reading for postgraduate students and academics focusing on narrative methodologies and aspects of professional learning within contemporary contexts.

A publication of The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, this important resource builds on the work of Carnegie's best-selling books, Scholarship Reconsidered and Scholarship Assessed. The Advancement of Learning explores the premise that the scholarship of teaching and learning holds the key to improving the quality of higher education. The Advancement of Learning answers questions readers are likely to have: What are the defining elements of the scholarship of teaching and learning? What traditions does it build on? What are its distinctive claims and possibilities? What are the implications of the scholarship of teaching and learning for academic culture and careers? How does it shape the student experience? In addition, authors Mary Taylor Huber and Pat Hutchings introduce a new concept that expands on the scholarship of teaching and learning--the teaching commons. As the authors explain, the teaching commons is a conceptual space in which communities of educators committed to inquiry and innovation come together to exchange ideas about teaching and learning and use them to meet the challenges of educating students for personal, professional, and civic life.

Podcasting for Learning in Universities details several examples of research to practice for the successful use of podcasts in Higher Education, drawing from studies in the UK, Australia and South Africa. The book offers a practical transferable model and guidelines for integrating podcasts in higher education contexts. There is a dedicated website at www.podcastingforlearning.com with further links and examples. "The sheer range of ideas for using podcasts shown by the case studies, will hopefully spark off a number of ideas for ways in which practice in one subject can be re-used in another. Case studies covering reflective learning, active learning, students voices, fieldwork, distance learning and learning transferable skills, show that podcasts are flexible enough as a medium to deliver effective learning outcomes regardless of the subject." ESCalate, 2nd October 2008. To read more of the ESCalate review click here. "This book is exactly what is required for a wide range of potential readers - it is practical, yet derived from research; it is focused on student learning, yet has a technical component; it is leading-edge, yet it draws on many case studies." Professor Robin Mason, The Open University, UK "I recommend this book to all academics in higher education." Peter Bullen, Ford Professor of Automotive Engineering, University of Hertfordshire, UK "This book shows how podcasts can help transform the teaching and learning experience in Higher Education...a blueprint for podcast use." Professor David Nicol, University of Strathclyde, Scotland "The students' views are represented strongly throughout the book, which helps to make it a compelling and extremely worthwhile read." Dr Linda Creanor, Glasgow Caledonian University, Scotland "Finally, a Podcasting Bible for education!" Mazlan Hasan, Senior Instructional Designer, National Institute of Education, Singapore "The 10-step pedagogic model for developing podcasting provides an essential step-by-step guide for anyone venturing into this area for the first time." Richard Wallis, TwoFour Learning "After reading this book, I am attracted to offering another flexible learning choice. Podcasting affords active learning whether individual, cooperative or collaborative contributions, either formal or informal."
